What to Pack?
Pack lightly, and bring casual clothes. A comfortable pair of walking shoes is a must (break them in first!). A sport coat and tie for men and one or two dresses or pant suits for women will suffice for most formal occasions. Bring a couple of shirts, sweaters, and a jacket (depending on the season) that can be worn in layers to accommodate China's range of climates. Wash-and-wear clothing is preferable, although all hotels offer reliable laundry and dry cleaning services.

When packing accessories, decide what's really important and take only the items you'll really use. (Keep in mind that there will be many opportunities to buy clothes to wear during your trip). Today's China is well-stocked with most personal items, although you may prefer to take along your favorite brands. Most sundries are available from hotel housekeeping or at local markets, and film and video tape are available almost everywhere (high-speed and slide film is the exception). Don't forget to take along a travel alarm, a good travel guide, and a map.

ELECTRICAL: Throughout China 220 volt/50 cycle is used. Although 4 & 5 star hotels are wired for use of 110 volt electrical appliances. Most hotels have a hand hair-dryer in each room.
