Celebrating New Year's in China!!

We are heading to China after Christmas, and the excitement is building.  Our list of expat interviewees are growing by the day, including teachers, writers, and business professionals. We will spend the first few days in Beijing and begin the New Year in Shanghai before moving on to the smaller villages of Chengdu and X'ian.  Some of the ventures we will explore include visiting the Temple of HeavenTiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the Great Wall, the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, the Chengdu Giant Panda Research Center, and the site of the Terracotta Army.

The weather during our visit will be in the low to mid-30s as a high, and in the teens for lows in Beijing.  Shanghai fares a little better with temperatures in the mid-to-upper 40s as a high, and low-to-mid 30s as a low.

Has anyone visited China in the winter months?  What was your experience like?
