TRAVEL TIPS FOR YOUR TRIP TO CHINA
Beijing. Shanghai. Hong Kong. These are just a few of the vibrant cities of China that attract visitors from every part of the world on a regular basis. If you’ve decided to book your trip to China, get ready to be taken to the past through historical sights like the Great Wall and thrust to the future through the fast-paced Shanghai skyline.
While preparing for your trip to China is exciting, it can be equally overwhelming. What should you bring? How should you dress? We’ll outline some helpful tips and tricks when it comes to packing for your trip, so you can concentrate on what’s most important – enjoying it!
SUNSCREEN, SUNGLASSES, AND LIP PROTECTION.
Places with high elevation, like Tibet, have strong sun rays and you may end up getting burned if you don’t take the proper precautions.
Because of the strong sun, it’s commonplace to see local people utilizing umbrellas so it would be wise to bring one along.
This will be very helpful throughout your time in China, specifically when it comes to shopping and transportation.
PACK FOR COMFORT.
The people of China tend to dress casually, so be sure to pack clothing for comfort. You may be walking quite a bit through different cities and towns, so the more comfortable you are, the better.
The early spring in China is much colder than it is along the East Coast, so if you’re traveling around that time be sure to bring a jacket.
When you’re packing up, be sure to consider Chinese luggage requirements as these are different than U.S. requirements in terms of bag weight. Also – as a packing tip – leave room for souvenirs and gifts! You’ll have plenty of opportunities to purchase things for friends and family back at home, so be sure you’re not faced with a packing conundrum when it’s time to come home.
Remember – the more prepared you are, the more enjoyable your trip to China will be. There’s so many activities to partake in, it might make sense to contact a travel agent in order to outline the details of your excursions and tours. So get in touch today and get ready for the trip of a lifetime!
