China is an enchanting country that can be overwhelming to first-time visitors. With so much to see and do, it’s difficult to know where to start. Here are 3 reasons why we believe China is the safest place to visit.
The Strict Rules in China
China has a reputation for being a country with strict rules and regulations. But what many people don’t realize is that these rules and regulations are in place to keep the country safe. Here are some of the reasons why China is one of the safest places to visit:

Water and Air Safety
In general, tap water in China is safe to drink. However, as with any country, there are always exceptions. Therefore, we recommend that you check with your hotel or hostel before consuming any tap water. Additionally, it’s always a good idea to carry a bottle of water with you, especially when traveling to rural areas where the quality of the tap water may not be as well regulated.
The air quality in China has been improving in recent years due to the government’s efforts to crack down on pollution. However, there are still some areas of the country that suffer from high levels of air pollution. If you’re concerned about air quality, we recommend avoiding travel to China during peak pollution periods (usually winter) and checking local air quality reports before planning your trip.
