China is a massive expanse of land on the Asian continent. First-time travellers to China might find the trip a little overwhelming with the country’s sheer size and especially the language barrier. Here are a few tips that will help you with your troubled mind.
Some research won’t hurt
Have plenty of time more for your holiday, but you can hardly wait? Well, then take this opportunity to read up on China and learn more about its culture and history. Do your research on places you’ll be visiting such as Xian, China hotels for accommodation and local cuisine.
It will do you much good to apply for your travel visa at least 6 months in advance. While some travellers would prefer to visit solo to have more interaction with locals, others may opt for tours. When selecting your tour to China, besides attractions, consider the size of the group and whether you will be offered stays at reputed hotels like Grand Park Xian.
If you are taking specifically prescribed medicines, remember to pack them all with a valid prescription as some of these medicines may not be available in China. Also, remember to obtain travel insurance which is especially important.
Chinese shops and malls usually accept Visa and MasterCard when it comes to payments. Do keep your credit card company informed that you will be using the card while on travel. Likewise, note that rural areas may not be equipped for card payments.
