2. Tell your family, relatives or friends the hotel name, address, telephone number, check-in time; if you join a group tour, take down the telephone numbers of your teammates' rooms.
3. Determine in advance where the Emergency Exits are.
4. Be sure there are no problems with the room windows, doors, or door locks; Lock the door securely before you go to sleep.
5. When using the bathroom to wash or rinse, mind that you do not slip.
6. Confirm the identity of those who visit your room and do not let strangers in indiscreetly; for any questions, you can make a phone call to ask the hotel staff to help you.
7. Valuables should not be left in the room when you go out; it is recommended that you deposit them in the checkroom or take them along with you.

Dining

3. Do not drink unboiled water. Bottled water is available to purchase in China. Do not buy the unbranded and dateless food produced by an unknown factory.

5. If you have a group tour, please confirm in advance the assembling time and the visiting itinerary before entering the scenic area.
6. If you want to take photographs or videos, do make sure first that photos are allowed at this scenic spot. Some special attractions (like some cultural relics or museums) prohibit photography. Respect China's cultural relics.

2. Bring appropriate clothes which are suitable based on the outing and the weather.
3. Bring with you any over-the-counter medicines you might need, such as pain-killers, cold medicines, or anti-diarrhea medicine, and a small first-aid kit. It may be difficult to purchase these items at your destination due to the lack of availability and the language barrier.
