While the areas visited do not provide extreme risk, we carry mosquito repellent (DEET) with us.e also recommend that students bring their own too (a 100mg travel spray), so that they have access to it throughout their trip.
The vast majority of China is a low-risk malaria region. The risk is higher close to the Myanmar border but we will not be traveling to this area. For the most up-to-date information, we recommend referring to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s page on China.
