My 17 year old son is off for a school trip to China. A couple of questions
Power plugs - web search indicates they use NZ 3-pin and also a parallel 2 pin option. How prevalent is the latter? Is an adapter needed?
Credit Card - He is too young so the best we can do is a debit card and cash. Any issues using ASB debit cards there? Other suggestions? Most stuff is paid for so it's really only a bit of spending money and possibly cash for emergencies
Phone - He uses 2 degrees and they don't seem to have any packages for China so he will have to get another sim from another provider just for a couple of weeks. Spark seem to have decent weekly packages for voice and data. Any other suggestions? (iPhone 6S)
Vaccinations - information is a bit vague pending a visit to the GP. Any suggestions here?
Any other hints/tips welcome. He will be with a group of about 20 with a couple of teachers and a local guide.
Boy these kids are lucky these days! In my day a trip to the local creek for a swim was about as good as it got.
