answer if you have done this trip or what you thought of it info etc. We are going to Guangzhou to Xining then take the train to Lhasa and spend about a week in Tibet. After we are going to Congquing and take a four day cruise up the Yangtze river. Any tips or experiences would be appreciated. I have been to China a couple times but not this trip. Thank you.

You are taking a trip that is often done by Western tourists and a fantastic trip over all. If you have traveled to China, you know the pitfalls, but you shouldn’t have any trouble. I did the trip down the Yangtze and it is beautiful. I thought the dam would have messed it up.
