CHINA Internship & Advanced Study 
 in prestigious Guangzhou University of TCM, China PRC 



Watch for New Tours in the Upcoming Year!

 


 

Frequently Asked Questions

1.Do I need a visa or passport to get into China?
Yes you will need both a visa and a passport for the trip. Each person needs to acquire their own passport and apply for a Visa at your closest China Consulate office. The Visa application will take approximately a week for processing. Certain cases may require a longer period of time. Please inquire about this by calling the Chinese consulate offices. Passports must also be valid for the entire duration of the trip.

2. How will getting around in China be? Can I manage without speaking any local dialect?
We will be traveling as a group during the tours, sometimes on buses, subways, and other times on trains or airplanes. We will have English-speaking interpreters with us during tours.

3. How about local transportation, if I want to go exploring the city on my own?
Taxis are very affordable in China. The Guangzhou and Hong Kong subway systems are safe and efficient. We can help arrange or advise on transportation in the other cities we visit.

4. What kinds of accommodations will we have while in Guangzhou and the other places we visit?
There are 2 kinds of accommodations, dormitories at the university or local hotels. Dormitories with shared bathrooms are approximately USD 20.00 to 30.00 per night. Local hotels near the university are between USD 40.00 to 80.00 per night with private bathroom and air-conditioning. After you have registered, you should decide on your choice of accommodation. The tour price does not include food and accommodation. 

5. What will the weather most likely be while we are in the places that we are visiting in China?
The average high and low temperatures of Guangzhou during November are 72/58 degrees F, with rare occasion of precipitation.

6. How expensive is China? Will I have a lot of out-of-pocket expenses?
It depends on your tastes and how much you like to shop. We suggest a budget of around USD 15.00 a day for food, on which you can eat quite healthily.(If you choose to!)  The selections include both local specialties and American fast food chains, plus whatever shopping you plan on doing.

7. Do you have any suggestions for what to pack for the trip? Are there any luggage limitations either domestically within China or internationally?
75 pounds is the international luggage limit, and 44 pounds domestically. Additional weight is subject to a surcharge. A travel money belt large enough to carry your passport and currency would be convenient for you. Bottled water, snacks and beverages are very easy and inexpensive to purchase anywhere in China. You do not need to bring a water filter. There is nothing special you need to pack for the trip.

8. Should I convert some money to Chinese currency before I leave home?
No. Convert your cash or travelers checks in the Hong Kong airport at one of two banks that are open 24 hours a day for money changing. This is the first thing we will do after arriving there.
