Some travel tips when you are in China

1. Score extra beds the easy way

Chinese hotels aren’t too fussy when it comes to matching the number of beds to the number of people, particularly when the extra bodies are children.

For families, this can save a lot of cash. Rather than needing two rooms, a family of four can get cozy in a twin room, where both beds are the same size as a regular double bed.

2. Toilet paper reminder

Toilet tissue is rarely found in public restrooms in China.

3. Sidestep difficult breakfasts

Outside of large cities and internationally branded hotels, Chinese hotel breakfasts cater exclusively to the local market

4. China is safe

China is nowhere near as terrifying as many guidebooks would have you believe.

China is one of the safest countries in the world for female travelers, solo travelers and families.
