Tips for Traveling in China

China is a beautiful land full of wonder and amazement. Anyone who has traveled to China will tell you two things about it: it’s massive and it is memorable. If you’re planning a visit to the Republic of China (and you should), there are a couple of tips that will help you get the most out of your visit to this exotic land.

First, consider the weather where you are going. Unlike smaller nations that may have a consistent climate year-round, China is a vast land that encompasses snowy tundra, steamy rain forest, wind-swept planes, and sun-scorched deserts. No, not all of China is located in areas of weather extremes but if you should check an almanac concerning the areas you plan to visit. This will clue you in to the type of clothing you should pack.

Second, make sure your travelers insurance is up to date and covers you in China. Not all traveler insurance companies will cover visits to all areas of China. Make sure you familiarize yourself with the specifics of your policy so that you can adjust your policy as necessary. After all, nothing is worse than being sick and stranded in a foreign land with no way to care for you illness.
