Any other travel tips for China?
Vaccinations Visit your doctor four to eight weeks before your trip. You might be advised to have vaccines such as hepatitis A, tetanus and typhoid (these are usually free on the NHS).
Climate: This varies a lot from region to region. In the north-east, which includes Beijing, it’s typically hot and dry between June and August, while the winters are freezing cold.
Time differences: China has only one time zone and is eight hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
Tipping In general: Tipping isn’t expected. It’s more customary in Hong Kong, and leaving a tip at the end of a tour is acceptable.
