China travel guide

Budgeting – Parts of China are far cheaper than the West, while other areas can be much more expensive. Research your destination and budget accordingly.

Visa – British visitors to China require a visa, which can be obtained from the Chinese embassy or an official visa sourcing centre.

Health – Get all of your vaccinations at least six to eight weeks in advance, as you'll need them to fully benefit from our medical cover. Consult your GP to determine which you will need – this is likely to include Typhoid and Rabies.
