There's also a travel advisory out because of heightened security, meaning it might be more difficult to move around the country. I think it should be fine, though, but you should consider the "peak" traveling periods of: 1) end of August/early September -- this is when college students head back to school; and 2) the first week of October -- the National Holiday week. It's very difficult to get plane/train/bus tickets during both these periods, so plan ahead and perhaps get them as soon as possible.

Eight American activists jailed in China for protesting during the Olympics said Monday that they were interrogated for hours, deprived of sleep and accused of having ties to the U.S. government.

The activists were sent home late Sunday during the closing ceremonies.
