China A--Z

Air travel
There are many international carriers flying between Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong to the capital city or the metropolis of your country. Please
check it at your local travel agency.
International departure requires check-in at least 2 hours prior to departure.

Airport Tax
Airport Tax for domestic flights is 50 yuan, for international flights is 90 yuan. It’s included in your air ticket.

Baggage
Economic class tickets for domestic flights only permit 20 kilos ( 44 pounds) of free baggage allowance per person.

Clothing
In spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) you may need a linen jacket or woolen sweater as over-light clothing. In summer
(June to August) cool cotton garments are recommended. In winter (December to February) a light cotton-patted coat will keep you warm enough
in the south; but in the north a heavy woolen coat or down parka is a must. Late spring and late summer are often rainy, especially in the southern
part of China, so it would be wise to bring some wet weather gear with you. And of course, good walking shoes are essential at any time of the
year.
