Inform your embassy or consulate of your arrival and your Itinerary. " Try not to travel alone unless you can speak the local language or Mandarin (Putonghua). Even then, a single traveler should keep to the beaten track. Sharing costs will be economical for two or more. Stay in reasonably good hotels.
