Sanitation Situation and Personal Health

With the development of tourism along the Yangtze River area, local people set up their private business somewhere

on shore, but to be honest, as most of the places are rural area, the sanitation situation is indeed a problem, though the people are friendly and nice. So the local food sold by the local people is not recommended to eat, unless you would like to take this as adventure.

As the climate along the Yangtze is usually humid, especially in hot summer times, so for the people who have skin allergy problems should pay more attention to strike balance between the humid inside bodies and outer surrounding. Medicine is necessary if need. Anti-sun and anti- mosquito lotion are also necessities.

Most cruise ships have water-purifying system on board, so the tap water used for taking showers and brushing teeth is safe; but it's not drinkable, at least not 100% guaranteed. Bottles of water are provided usually for daily drinking.

River cruise is not bumpy at all, not like the ocean cruise, so usually people have ocean-sickness problems have no troubles to sail along the Yangtze in those river cruise ships.
