You are best to bring in multiple layers of clothes that can be added or removed according to your level of activity. Thermal winter clothing is ideal and a down jacket is recommended. We also suggest a warm hat, gloves and neck warmer. Salopets may be useful.
Luggage: On tour
It is essential that your baggage is lockable; the airport authorities insist on this. Please be aware, before boarding a flight in China that the Chinese authorities will only allow glass bottles onto aircraft if they have been checked in as main luggage. Any glass bottles in the hand luggage may be confiscated. Luggage allowance on tour is 20kg
A torch, water bottle, high factor suncream (at least factor 15), good quality sunglasses and a lip salve with sun protection. Please note that camera batteries loses their charge quickly in the extreme cold, so these may need to be recharged frequently in Harbin.
