All foreigners visiting China need a visa, which must be obtained before you arrive, but the visa issued and what is required to obtain it varies considerably from country to country, and the rules are constantly changing. Most students at the tai chi school simply get a tourist visa, but if you are applying for a tourist visa don’t reveal that you are coming to study Tai Chi. The length of time given on a tourist visa and whether or not it can be extended within China depends on your country of origin. Enquire at the Chinese embassy in your home country, and email us if you have any problems or further questions.

8. Don’t Bring Too Much Cash:
Many people get worried about cash, especially if they’re
traveling outside the big Chinese cities.ATMs are everywhere in
China and provide a decent exchange rate. My advice is to
bring enough cash to live on for a few days (and split it among
bags in case one gets lost/stolen)
9. Loose long Pants , shorts , T-shirts (in Summer period), Jackets and warm sweaters (in winter period).
Comfortable running shoes is good to bring, but do know that we have shoes specialized for Tai Chi and QiGong training that we sell in our school ( 60RMB/pairs) . If you happen to forget to bring something in daily life , you can easy to buy it in the supermarkets of the town.
