M from the tropics & planning to stay at Beijing from the last week of december til d 1st week of Jan. My first winter vacation, any advice?
1st winter vacation. Need to wear, places to visit, activities to take, western new year celebration.
I'm sure others will have great advice on things to see and do, but on the clothing issue.... in my experience stores in countries which do not get harsh winters with freezing temperatures never stock the right sort of clothing (apart from mountaineering gear). At least not the range of suitable attire. (The first time I went from Australia to Europe in winter I was completely unprepared). My advice, is to have one set of winter clothes, and some cash in your pocket to go shopping for more when you get to your destination. They'll have a wider range of suitable clothing and you won't look like you're about to tackle Mt Everest. over 7 years ago
