I will be acting as your astronomy guide on a 13-day tour to China next year to see the total solar eclipse. The tour is organised by Wendy Wu Tours. It leaves Heathrow on 14th July 2009 and returns on 26th. It travels from Beijing to Xian to see the Terracotta Warriors and on to Hangzhou. We shall view the eclipse on the 22nd July from the banks of the Qiantang River.
Our tour will then progress to Suzhou and Shanghai. All sorts of treats are in store, from rickshaw rides to boat trips, from traditional food and tea to gardens and buildings. I am thrilled to be offered the opportunity to see the wonders of China and share the eclipse experience with you.
