Although China is a remarkably safe tourist country, unexpected emergencies, especially medical emergencies, can arise during your trip. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with how such instances are handled in China before you depart for your tour.
As the Chinese economy continues to grow, medical services in China have likewise made great leaps, albeit the services provided can vary from place to place.
Generally speaking, medical service in highly-developed cities like Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong is much better than that in the more rural areas. In the cities, qualified doctors and advanced facilities are available, while these are almost unavailable in less-developed regions.
At China Tour, our tour guides are well-trained and are capable of handling any emergency that might arise during your trip. If you become ill while touring, just inform them and they will be happy to help you, either fetching a doctor for you or admitting you to hospital. In emergency cases, they will call 120, the emergency telephone number in China (equivalent to 9-1-1 in the US).
In China, both medical services including first-aid are available in some large hotels and restaurants. Moreover, medical care in China is generally less expensive than that in western countries.
