I'm once again behind on summer planning. ERSEH is taking me to China in June - my first trip there! I was hoping to extend my stay long enough to see some more of China, and was initially thinking I'd check out Beijing, but China's too big - and when will I be so far south again? I was delighted to discover that my friends at Rough Guides have just published this... until I read: Summers (June-Aug) are stiflingly humid with torrential rains, especially in southern Guanxi, Xishuangbanna and Chongqing City (rated as one of China's "three summer furnaces"). Wet weather also causes landslides, leading to road closures in rural areas. (10) Oh dear.
