    Hi, I decided to postpone the trip to Oct 2012. I have 8 sessions class to join till 30th Nov and we have plan to have Winter Photo Tour to Guilin and Harbin. JiuZhaiGou is famous in Autumn Scene, so I believe I should make this decision. Thanks and Sorry to cause any inconvenience.

    @All, Sharron just joined the group, so she is able to jump into our conversation now.

    August 19, 2011

  • Cool J.

    Hi, Sharron needs one week to make her quotation with different options for us to choose, so I'll contact her again this Friday. Thanks

    August 18, 2011

  • Cool J.

    Hi, Sharron from Asian Phototour just got back to me, she is in Thailand, back to China on 24th Aug but she is able to make us the quoted, so we wait to hear back soon. By the way, can you let me know which categories you are focusing for shooting on the trip? Landscape, Local Culture and Portraits??

    August 14, 2011

  • Cool J.

    @All, I re sent the email to the Asia PhotoTour coz my hotmail is blocked and their phone is switched off as well. They mentioned on the website that they are on holiday. I am looking for alternative, will come back shortly.

    August 14, 2011

  • Cool J.

    @Raji, I am going to pick up and check again. It won't be too late coz we got another plan for the group. U can join the waiting list, and wait for the final information coming very soon. OK?

    August 10, 2011

  • Raji T.

    hey jenny is this the finalised date ? i'd like to join if the dates r adjusted later ?

    August 10, 2011

  • Cool J.

    Is it? What about Tibet??

    August 3, 2011

  • Bernard A.

    Thanks a lot this place is yet another place I have so far only dreamt of!

    August 3, 2011

  • Cool J.

    Hey, still waiting for the Asia Phototour get back to me. No reply from email and I called them, swift off.
    We can discuss the date once we have all tour information. I will be trying to do everything satisfying all members.
    Yes, we both need good LANDSCAPE PHOTOS!

    August 3, 2011

  • Bernard A.

    Jenny are the dates confirmed? I have difficulty as I need to be back on 13th October, once travel arrangements are being finalized I may need to see how I can arrange for earlier exit *sigh*

    August 3, 2011

  • Cool J.

    I am checking with www.asiaphototour.com of the quoted of the PhotoTour. I am considering we may need someone really understand western culture and speak good english, so I prefer to check with the Expat Photo Tour company.
    Their Photo Leaders, Sharron Lovell and Steve Radtke, I'll check with their advices and get back to you shortly.

    July 31, 2011

  • Cool J.

    @Katherine, I am ok with female shared room or single room. Just thinking even number is better. Men support ladies better if we have heavy luggage (tripod...etc) and not too much noisy, haha...

    July 22, 2011

  • Katherine

    Jen, is it room arrangement you mostly concerned?

    July 22, 2011

  • Cool J.

    @All, sorry, we have 5 females and 3 males now.

    July 22, 2011

  • Cool J.

    @Jill, you are in the confirmed list, not waiting list since I decide to go alone with the group, not with anyone.

    July 22, 2011

  • Cool J.

    @Jill, I open the waiting list, please keep on waiting list in case if anyone off. I do not want big group coz I need good photos collection. JiuZhaiGou is famous in 4 season scene, we definitely come back in the different seasons.
