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.
