China

Warnings

 
China is a very safe and wonderful destination, especially for foreigners, but there are a few cautions which we would like to share with you.
 
Drugs
 
Using or dealing in any form of narcotic drug in China is punishable by the death sentence or life in prison.
 
Renting bicycle / cars
 
Renting bicycle is a risk in that the road conditions are dangerous, (pedestrians, traffic and fast electric bikers ) and most road users are not sufficiently trained.
 
Renting cars is also not advised because of the above reasons and also because of the complicated driver’s license qualification & application for foreigners.
 
Security
 
China is one of the safest countries in the world with very low rates of personal crime. However, it is a good idea to keep passports / tickets at your hotel and avoid carrying large amounts of money on your person.
