1. Would the weather be much better Oct. 13 -Oct 20 or should we choose to visit Beijing and Xi'an Nov. 11 - 18? One is before the cruise the other is after. Both times will have private guide and car.
2. What is an acceptable way to get from Xi'an to Bangkok. Choices could be China Southern airlines with CAN stop China Eastern with PVG stop or China Air with PEK stop. It seems all options will take all day to get to Bangkok. Which airport/airline probably best?
3. How else can we get from Xi'an to Bangkok?
