Preparing for China: A step by step blog from Europe to China


Going to a new country is always exciting, but also stressful.

There are a lot of things to prepare, to plan and to take care of. It’s not only the visa or the flight ticket, but also preparing to live in China for quite a while. For example, paying in cash is not really common anymore (but still available) and there are apps that make your life a lot easier, be it for the train, hotels, food and more.

Thus, I will report here my knowledge, my errors, and a lot of pictures, as I did with France, Italy and Switzerland. I hope that for some it will be a little bit helpful, for others entertaining or else.

Use the navigation menu on top of the website to search for different topics, like the Visa, flying or more.

I had a lot of help from my girlfriend. Without her, I would have had a lot more problems.
