Your Packing List

You will be able to find most of everything that you will need in China. Clothes, toiletries, shoes, cell phones etc. are quite cheap.  Shenzhen has many international stores such as H&M, Decathlon, Ikea and UniQlo. However, some things can be harder to find. We have listed some recommendations on what to bring to China.

-            Lightweight clothes. Clothes are quite cheap and easy to buy in China, so there is no need to over pack. However, if you need larger sizes (especially for shoes or pants) you find suitable sizes hard to find. There are also many inexpensive tailors and international stores in Shenzhen
-            Personal hygiene products. Take a few samples of your favorite brands, as you will have difficulties finding the same products in China.
-            Mementos and photos from home
-            Small gifts to give to your Chinese friends
-            Bug Spray, sunscreen, antiperspirant
-            Prescription or name brand medications. You may not be able to find the same brand of medication in China. It is also helpful to bring basic medicines, such as ibuprofen, cold and flu medicine, anti-diarrhea medicine, etc.
-            Books in your native language or an Electronic book reader
