Public health

Traveling internationally may lead to a number of risks. You should know the health needs of traveling in the regions that you plan to visit. Consideration of hygiene and security conditions, vaccination and any other health conditions required by the government in your country when you travel or are in transit are your own responsibility. It helps to be well informed before you leave.

1. Vaccine

No vaccinations are currently required to travel to China. You can, however, consult your doctor before departure, as he/she can advise you based on your health.
For people traveling to tropical areas in the southwestern region of the country, such as Xishuangbanna, it is often necessary to have a malaria vaccine, considering the area is full of mosquitoes.

If you are traveling in rural underdeveloped areas, you should be vaccinated against hepatitis A and typhoid, Japanese encephalitis (extended stay in rural areas) and rabies.

2. High altitudes

Health problems related to altitude can occur when people ride fast at altitudes above 2,500 meters. If you are traveling to Tibet or other Chinese provinces like Sichuan and Yunnan, then you should make sure you have no heart issues or high blood pressure. A medical certificate will be required before you go to Tibet.

3. Day to day life

Tap water is not drinkable in any city in China. You will easily find bottles of water everywhere and we also provide you with a small bottle every day. Make sure your bottle has not been previously opened. For dining, restaurants only offer hot water, beer or soft drinks such as Coca-Cola and Sprite.
To prevent traveler's diarrhea, try to eat as many well-cooked dishes as possible. It is also important to eat fruits with thick skin. Always remove the skin of the fruit you eat.
Always have toilet paper when you visit any location because, with the exception of hotels, you rarely find places that restock their facilities or provide toilet paper at all. Avoid toilet areas or walkways that are poorly maintained. Prepare well for the event, especially in remote areas, where you may find yourself near an unpleasant and unsafe toilet area.
If you are in a large city, KFC and McDonald's usually offer clean restrooms and you do not need to consume any food to use their faculties. The con is that most toilets are Turkish, which are also known as squat toilets.
We recommend that you wash your hands often and avoid touching handrails in public transportation or other items that may have germs. If you want to eat at street stalls, it is best to choose vendors that are frequented by locals, have a sign of fresh produce, and/or make sure that their meat is cooked. Use disposable chopsticks for better hygiene.
Double check with your doctor on your health before going to higher altitudes or engaging in trips that are physically demanding.
