China 12th September (Weather) - Peter Jersey - 25/06/2012 09:52 AM
Do you have any idea what the weather is usually like in Sept. Hot during the day, freezing cold at night? That sort of thing. I promise not to hold you to it. HONEST!!

Good morning Peter,
thanks for your question!
Please see below an extract from our country information that we send out to customers when they've booked.
hope this helps!
Climate & Clothing
Casual dress is the most appropriate clothing throughout this holiday; we recommend layers of clothing as it can be chilly in the early mornings and late at night.
All our China tours require you to be fairly fit as you walk a fair distance due to the amount of sightseeing included. We suggest you take a comfortable pair of walking shoes/boots, sun cream, sunglasses and a hat. We would also suggest you take a small rucksack to carry drinks etc.
Winter months - October to mid March
Travelling to China during the winter months is ideal as you will avoid the usual crowds. However, please remember that you will need to wrap up warm by wearing several layers of clothing to combat the cold, as much of your time will be spent outside, sightseeing. You will need to take with you a winter coat, hat, gloves and warm comfortable footwear.
Spring months - mid March to mid May
The climate in China during the spring months is pleasant and sunny with daytime temperatures averaging 50-60ºF. However, you will need to take with you a lightweight waterproof jacket in case of the odd rain shower and also a warm sweater/ jacket to wear in the evenings.
Summer months - mid May to September
The climate in China during the summer months will be quite hot, with daytime temperatures reaching the upper 80’s we recommend that you take with you lightweight clothing.

I have been told by the tour managers that there is not alot of walking on this tour, they said you will be walking for say no more than 20mins and as the coach is with you at all times you are more than welcome to stay on the coach if necessary.
Hope this helps.

Snap!! I'm 73 as well. Don't worry we will be alright. A friend of mine has already told me that I will not be able to get up all the steps to stand on the Great Wall. If that is the case we can wait together for the rest of the group to come back down and have a drink and a sit down while we wait.
Apparently the steps are quite steep.

When I went to China in September weather ranged from hot to cool and wet. Managed with short-sleeved shirt plus thin wooly and rain jacket when necessary. Fantastic experience!.
