We recently blogged about our favorite destinations for October 2010.  China was one of TravAddict's favorite destinations, and it happens to be very fitting, because Gecko's Adventures is currently offering 20% off any trip to China! They are also offering 20% off trips to India, Nepal and South East Asia! This special is valid for any trip booked before September 30th 2010, and it is for travel before March 31st 2011.

To jog your memory about China, we are re-posting our reasons why it is one of our favorite destinations to travel to in October:

CHINA:  China can be excessively hot in the summer, but come October the weather is perfect. If you really enjoy the crowds and local festivals, China’s National Day and Moon Festival are not to be missed.  China’s National Day is celebrated on the 1st of October, and if you want to see some fireworks that will blow your mind you don’t want to miss this display!  The Moon festival will also be celebrated in October this year.  The Moon festival is always celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th lunar moon, which happens to be the 3rd of October this year.  The Chinese usually celebrate the Moon festival with family, and eat moon cakes and sing songs when the moon rises.  After this busy long weekend in early October the crowds will die down, the transport will become cheaper, and the weather is perfect for sightseeing.
