What to Pack
Here is information regarding what to pack while
you are preparing for your tour to China.
- You must pack proper clothing depending on the time of year
you are travelling. In this case it would be July or August. For
detailed information about weather, visit our weather page. A
necessary accoutrement would be a pair of good walk shoes. If
you decide to go for sightseeing or excursions, it could involve
plenty of walking, sometimes on hard or uneven surfaces.
- Take hats and sunglasses for saving yourself from the sun.
Many attractions are quite exposed to the weather. Forbidden
City has many large open spaces. For reaching the Great Wall
too, you would have to go through open spaces. If you decide to
go to places with high elevation such as Tibet, these items
would protect your skin and eyes as at the places with high
altitude and thin atmosphere, the sun's solar radiation strikes
the earth unhindered.
- Be mindful of Chinese regulations regarding 'Carry On' and
'Check-in' luggage. 'Carry On' luggage for air travel is limited
to two pieces for first class travelers and one piece for
business and economy class travelers. The total weight of the
above two pieces shall not exceed five kilograms. Baggage other
than this should be mentioned as 'Check-in- luggage.
- While taking in mobiles, ensure that they are compatible with
the system used in China. If you regularly use certain
medication, take the pill with you. Although good healthcare is
available in big cities, it would be better if you carry the
pills with you. Keeping a first-aid kit would always be helpful.
- Don't forget to pack all necessary papers. Keep in a secure
place your visa, passport, traveller's checks, credit cards,
airline tickets, train tickets, cruise tickets etc. Also keep
you address separately written on a diary, all required
telephone number and e-mail addresses list. This would be
helpful in case of an emergency.
- An insect repellant would be useful if you plan to travel to
the rural areas.
