2010 NCTA Study Tour to China

Rigors of Travel

In addition to being in general good health, adaptable to a variety of circumstances, and sensitive to cultural differences, participants are encouraged to enroll in a general fitness program upon acceptance into the study tour program.

Participants should be in excellent physical condition to ensure that they are able to meet the following travel challenges:

  • extended periods of hot, humid weather;
  • hot and crowded ground transportation and high levels of air pollution;
  • climbing many stairs; and
  • extended periods of walking that may exceed five miles a day.

Pack as lightly as possible, as you will be required to carry your luggage through airports and train stations and from buses to hotels.
