It is important to pack clothes suitable for the season that you will be travelling in. We suggest that
you bring layers of clothing suitable for cold spells, even when travelling in Spring and Autumn.
During the warmer months it is best to pack clothes that are casual and comfortable, without being
too revealing. It is still necessary for women to wear trousers when entering temples in China,
and we suggest packing lights, cotton clothing that is easily washed and not too delicate. When
travelling from May to August it is necessary to bring clothing suitable during rainy weather.
There are few taboos when it comes to dressing in China, and we suggest you pack comfortable clothing including walking shoes, sandals, jeans, shorts, a hat and t-shirts. Pack clothes that can be layered for changes in temperature. Laundry services are offered in China for a set price per item and this will be advertised on the Hotel Laundry List.
