Before Your Trip
Before you even leave for China pack some emergency medications for common ailments like the cold and diarrhea just in case. Make some copies of your essential documents related to your tour, such as your passport, traveler’s checks, credit cards, itinerary, airline tickets, and the like.
Carrying one copy of your passport along with you and leaving another copy with your family can save you a considerable headache if your passport happens to get lost or stolen.
During Your Trip
- Never drink the tap water in your hotels, because drinkable tap water is rarely available in China.
- Do not let a stranger enter your room. If someone knocks at your door, never open the door until their identity is verified.
- If your passport is not needed, never carry it along with you in case you lose it. Keeping it in your hotel proves much safer and wiser.
- When visiting particularly bustling places like markets, take care of your belongings in case of theft, especially your camera, purse, and so on.
- Avoid traveling alone, particularly in areas you are not familiar with.
- Ask a policemen (and there are typically plenty of them around) for help in case you are lost.
- Always exchange your money at the Bank of China or in the hotel counters to protect yourself from being swindled. Make sure you have small bills on you before heading out each day, which may be needed when buying something from the street vendors or taking a taxi.
