Due to strictly enforced weight restrictions in China, luggage weight per person must not
exceed 44 pounds and guests are permitted only one piece of checked luggage. Luggage
exceeding the allowable weight is subject to excess baggage charges which can result
in a considerable additional expense.
Regulations within most airports require that customers handle their own luggage through
customs. On these occasions, luggage carts will be available. Further regulations in China
require that all checked baggage be locked, including outside packets and separate compartments.
Sturdy hard-sided luggage is recommended.
The Chinese government has strict regulations regarding hand-carry luggage as well. The
maximum weight is 10 pounds, and the MAXIMUM DIMENSIONS are 22" x15" x8"
(including all wheels, handles, etc.) If these dimensions are exceeded, the carry-on may be
checked at the gate.
On intra tour flights, the following additional items are allowed:
- One small size handbag / purse
- One coat or blanket
- One umbrella or one walking stick
- One pair of crutches
- One small camera \ binoculars
