We've all heard the old saying: the world is your oyster. When traveling to China this saying could be tweaked to read: the world is your oyster (mushroom). Oh, trust us, chicken in black bean sauce, bok choy and a handful of oyster mushrooms? Scrumptious. Yet it is prudent to remember that with the good sometimes comes the bad. A trip to China could quite easily become one of the most exciting and positive occasions of your life. To help reduce the stress levels that all travel includes, visit a certified travel clinic for a travel vaccination or two before you begin your journey. With this easy and affordable protection, the sights, sounds and tastes of this spectacular country and culture will shine through any associated health risk.
A great idea when visiting such a colossal country is a detailed itinerary. In this world, some countries, cities, towns and burghs seem almost perfect for getting out there and huffing it with just a backpack on and a cheap local map-but not China. When in a country so rich, vast, culturally diverse and... well, let's face it, HUGE, preparing a list of your must-sees is imperative. Some areas of the world are better for what we call targeted travel and China is the perfect example of such a country. As in any country as gigantic and diverse as China, special precautions should be taken to protect oneself from an array of potential problems. First on this list of protective measures is the receiving of any recommended travel vaccination (or vaccinations).
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that any traveler to China visit a certified travel clinic four to six weeks before their departure date. China's diversity includes not only language dialects and belief systems but differing landscapes. Different land types mean different diseases to be worried about. First, make sure that your routine vaccination record is up-to-date. This includes a past vaccination for measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria and tetanus. When visiting a certified travel clinic please present the doctor there with a copy of your itinerary so that he or she can continue the process of protection.
A certified travel doctor at a travel clinic will probably recommend several additional vaccination inoculations depending on where you are going in the country and at what time of the year you will be traveling. These may include a vaccination for ขา เรียว เล็ก hepatitis A or B, typhoid, polio, Japanese encephalitis and/or rabies. Do not allow the seemingly large array of potential dangers keep you from experiencing the grandeur of the world at large and China in particular.
With the correct travel vaccination procedures squared away, and other precautions taken (such as converting cash to travelers checks and/or local currency, making sure you have emergency contact numbers to the United States embassies and other critical governmental entities that may help in case of an emergency, etc.) your trip to China will surely be a healthy trip to remember for a lifetime.
Remember to create an itinerary that will please the entire family or each of the group of friends with whom you are traveling with. From the famed Great Wall of China to the thousands of terra cotta warriors on display in the Forbidden City, from the Potala Palace in Lhasa (once home to the Dalai Lama) to the spectacular scenery on a boat trip down the Li River you will never forget a moment.
