China is what you make of it so go with an open-mind. I had no expectations and had the best time ever. Some of the simplest things such as ordering food, getting directions, and taking a shower can prove to be challenging because of the language barrier and local customs. Definitely head to the Southern most province of Hainan to surf and hangout with some really cool Mongolians and Russians.

CHECKOUT: eLong will be your best friend in China. This website will allow you to book your own flights for really really cheap!

DO: If you are not used to ‘squat‘ toilets, and wiping your bum with you hands then definitely remember to carry toilet-paper with you EVERYWHERE you go.
