Passport & Visa:

The passengers are responsible for all visas, entry documents, health and other requirements and any documents required by laws, regulations, orders and/or requirements of countries visited. All passengers traveling in China and other Asian countries require a Passport, valid for at least 6 months beyond the conclusion of their trip, and with appropriate visas. Multiple-entry visas are required if the passengers need to reenter the country. It is the responsibility of each passenger to have a valid Passport and necessary visas, as well as to comply with entry, health or other requirements of the countries visited. The Operators and agents are not responsible for passport, visa requirements, entry, health or other requirements of the countries visited or for any loss sustained by you for failing to comply with laws, regulations, orders and/or requirements of countries visited.
China tourist visa is L visa issued for a stay of short duration, usually 30 days, but not more than 90 days, and can not be extended upon expiration.

Climate & Clothing: 

Unless you have a need for formal or dressy clothes, jeans, slacks, shorts, shirts, blouses and T-shirts will do fine.
A comfortable pair of walking shoes is a must. You will be doing a great deal of walking both in the rural and urban areas of China.
Bring a swimming suit if you wish to swim. Many hotels have a swimming pool. Sun block, sunglasses and a light hat are also suggested items.
In spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) you will need a lined jacket, woolen sweater or light coat. In summer (June to August) cool cotton garments are recommended. In winter (December to February) a fleece jacket, sweatshirt, or heavy sweater will probably keep you warm enough in the south, but in the north a heavy woolen coat or down parka is a must.
It is often rainy in late spring and late summer, especially in the southern part of China, so bring some rainwear with you, or you can buy it at your destination.

Beat Jetlag on China Tours: 

Get plenty of rest before your trip. Starting out sleep-deprived makes jet lag worse. If you're traveling east, try going to bed one hour earlier each night for a few days before your departure. Go to bed one hour later for several nights if you're flying west.
Drink plenty of water before, during and after your flight to counteract the dehydrating effects of bone-dry cabin air. It's not clear whether dehydration actually causes jet lag, as some experts maintain, but there's no doubt it makes symptoms worse. For the same reason, avoid alcohol and caffeine, both of which dehydrate you further.
Move around during the flight, walk up and down, do some stretching exercises, to keep the blood circulating, and keep the joints from stiffening. While seated, swirl your ankles around from time to time.
Try to sleep on the plane if it is nighttime at your destination. Earplugs, headphones and eye masks can help block out noise and light. If it's day where you're going, resist the urge to sleep.
Set your watch to the new time before you leave. Once you reach your destination, try not to sleep until nighttime, no matter how tired you are.
Finally, if you just cannot resist and your eyelids are drooping and you feel more and more tired, then set you alarm for four hours, have a hot bath, and jump into bed.
