Some of the things you should know when travelling to China

 

Travelling to China for the first time? Be sure to know some of these facts:

1.      Language barrier can be a problem. If you know the Chinese language basics, this advantage will help you while travelling to the country. Mandarin is very useful. You can always buy language learning software before visiting the country.

2.      Since China is a big country, you are advised to plan your trip properly. Decide on which region to visit first and then. Once you have made your decision, make a plan and do some preparations if any. Make sure you learn about the regions that you wish to visit. This is because some places have different cultures and practices.

3.      Learn about the country’s public transportation, from its local schedule to transportation fares. You have to know all these in order to avoid yourself from getting cheated. Your knowledge will come in handy, especially when you are going to take a taxi. There are public buses that will take you around, so consider taking one whenever you can. You will not only save money, but you’ll get to learn your way around the country better.
