Travel to China with Seniors & Disableds

Disable travelers:

Chinese governments have built a friendly country to the disable people. There are various considerable facilities for disable people to travel in. Special-designed & equipped facilities in the public area of transport, airport and hotel are now more accessible. Here we provide some tips for disable travelers:

Get plenty of information and finalize your destinations. Those special-designed facilities in your destinations may be totally different from that of your countries. But you can not be anxious because many big cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hong Kong have already built up a comparatively complete system for this special group.

Make a throughout body check before your China tour. I is necessary to discuss with your doctor about this matter. You should take your doctor’s name and telephone number for emergencies.

lTelling your travel advisor what equipment you may take or you need when traveling in China.

Recheck your health insurance policy to ensure it covers the medical expenses incurred during trips overseas. Check that in covers pre existing conditions and, if doubt, contact your insurers.

Senior travelers:

-Have breakfast before leaving the hotel for convenience, and avoid being too adventurous with foods.

-Don't take the subway or city buses during peak times (7–9am and 5–7pm). China Highlights tours include private transport and hotel pick-ups and drop-offs to cover all your transport needs. If traveling on your own, China Highlights suggests you take taxis to your destinations, which is more convenient and safer.

-Tell your tour guide what you need, and whether the pace is suitable for you.

-Customers should buy insurance, and carry the insurance policy and company's phone number.

-Carry relevant medical records and medication.

-Carry family members' contact details.

-When out doing free time activities carry your hotel's business card.

-Don't carry too much money (about 2,000 yuan is usually enough). You can always change money at your hotel or nearest Bank of China, and ask for your guide's help if need be.


-As senior clients stomach's are more easily upset by local food, we recommend eating at the hotel, or a good restaurant, and avoiding eating street snacks.

-Our restaurant selections ensure you can eat plenty of delicious, authentic, and healthy food. It has been said that in China you can eat well without putting on weight!


-Trains: We don't recommend traveling by train, as most stations have many flights of steps to negotiate, and there is often a crowded rush to board the train. This presents a big challenge to those who are not so mobile.

-Bullet trains are ok as all platforms have lifts, and crowding is not so much of a problem.


-We recommend senior travelers stay at a central location to make evening and morning free-time activities as convenient as possible.

-We suggest staying at international-style large hotels, as they have softer beds, showers, and lifts.
