We advise travelers to pack as slightly as possible as most travel necessities can be bought at your in China.

The packing list :

1. The passport with all necessary visas and travel authorities, for identification purposes and the visa.

2. Casual outdoor clothing depending on the time of year that you travel and your destination. A pair of good walk shoes is necessary. Many of the tours can involve plenty of walking, sometimes on hard or uneven surfaces, as well as stairs or steps.  Many attractions are also quite exposed to the weather – sun, wind, rain etc; for example the Forbidden City has many large open spaces, and many of the Temples have large courtyards between their halls and pagodas.

3. 'Carry On' luggage for air travel in China is limited to 2 pieces for first class travelers and one piece for business and economy class travelers. The dimensions of each shall not exceed 20X40 X55cm and the total weight of the above two pieces shall not exceed 5 kg. The carry on items in excess of the above mentioned shall be checked-in as checked baggage according to regulations.

4. Wallet.

5. Credit cards.

6. Traveler's checks.

7. Airline, Cruise or Train tickets

8. First-aid kit

9. Medicine and vitamins.

10. Hat, Sunscreen, lip creams and sunglasses, depending on the season and your destination. If you will go to places with high elevation such as Tibet, parts of Sichuan, Yunnan and Xinjiang provinces, these items are vital to protect your skin and eyes as the high altitude and the thin atmosphere allows the sun's solar radiation to strike the earth with unusual intensity.

11.  Address and telephone number list. A list of e-mail addresses, mailing addresses and telephone numbers will help keep you in touch. Type them onto a sheet instead of taking a your whole address book. It will save weight.

12.  Itinerary with confirmation numbers and addresses and phone numbers of the places you'll be staying.

13.  Insect repellent. Especially for summer months and for travelers who are visiting rural areas.

14..Do not bring expensive jewelry and watches.

15.  Medical records; daily necessities such as bathroom requirements are readily available throughout China and you may wish to save space by purchasing these items while you travel.

If you are taking a more adventurous trip, it's a good idea to take your own silk sleeping bag liner and lightweight travel towel along with a reasonable supply of tissues, torch, personal toiletries.
