Before traveling or participating in group activities, it is important to make adequate preparations to ensure a safe and smooth journey. First and foremost, it is essential to carry complete travel documents, such as Hong Kong identity card and travel documents, and check their validity. Additionally, it is recommended to make a photocopy of these documents as a backup. Furthermore, since the weather can be unpredictable, it is advisable for group members to bring appropriate clothing and rain gear to cope with different weather conditions.
Punctuality is crucial in group activities. All members must gather on time to ensure that the itinerary can proceed as scheduled. Moreover, it is important to carefully handle one's own luggage, avoiding mistaking someone else's luggage and refraining from carrying someone else's luggage through customs. For safety reasons, it is not advisable to bring valuable items and large amounts of cash.
During the activity, group members should pay attention to personal safety and the security of their belongings. It is important not to leave the group without permission, and all members should depart and return together, taking care of each other to avoid getting lost. When visiting museums, historical sites, or scenic spots, group members should listen to the tour guide's explanation before collecting learning materials or taking photos. At the same time, it is important to respect cultural heritage, pay attention to whether photographing or recording is allowed, and whether it is permissible to touch any items. When visiting schools, group members should respect the local education system, keep quiet, follow the instructions of the reception staff, and actively participate in the experiential activities arranged by the school and interact with mainland students.
Finally, group members should avoid any unlawful behavior, such as drinking alcoholic beverages, smoking, gambling, etc. If any problems arise, they should proactively seek assistance from the staff or the accompanying teacher to ensure a safe and smooth journey.
Safety should be a top priority while traveling by car. First and foremost, if there is a seatbelt, it should be fastened at all times, and passengers should not walk around or play randomly. Additionally, passengers should not engage in conversation with the driver or shout loudly along the way, to avoid distracting the driver's attention.
Furthermore, at any time during the car ride, passengers should not extend any part of their body out of the window, to avoid any potential accidents. Also, passengers should pay attention to the explanations and announcements by the tour guide or accompanying teacher to ensure a smooth journey.
When arriving at the destination, passengers must wait for the vehicle to come to a complete stop and pay attention to traffic conditions before getting off the car safely. Additionally, when getting off the car, it is necessary to let the tour guide or accompanying teacher get off first to ensure the order and safety of the group's travel.
When traveling by air, it is important to be aware of luggage restrictions and prohibited items. For example, it is advisable to avoid carrying compressed gas sprays, and all sharp objects and liquids must be stored in checked luggage.
It is recommended that each tour member carry one piece of checked luggage weighing no more than 20 kilograms and one piece of carry-on luggage weighing no more than 7 kilograms. When purchasing souvenirs, it is important to consider luggage weight restrictions and whether the items can be taken out of the country.
According to airport regulations, all tour members are required to pack their liquids, gels, and sprays in containers no larger than 100 milliliters. These containers should be placed in a sealed, transparent plastic bag to ensure they are properly secured. In addition, backup power sources, such as portable chargers, must be stored in carry-on luggage and cannot be placed in checked luggage.
Taking a train is a safe and efficient way to travel, but tour members must pay attention to the following before boarding. First, do not cross the platform warning line before boarding to avoid being caught in the track by the whirlwind generated by the train entering the station. When boarding, tour members should also be careful of the gap between the train and the platform to prevent accidental falls. Similarly, when getting off the train, tour members should not jump off while the train is still moving to avoid losing balance and getting injured.
After boarding, tour members should find their designated seat and try to stay seated, especially when the high-speed train is in motion. In addition, tour members should keep their tickets safe for inspection by train personnel and at the destination, to avoid unnecessary trouble caused by losing their ticket. Luggage should be labeled with a luggage tag for easy identification.
Prohibited items, including explosives, dangerous goods, compressed gases, flammable liquids, toxic substances, knives, corrosive substances, etc., are strictly prohibited from being carried on board. Limited amount of carry-on items include nail polish, nail polish remover, etc., which cannot exceed 20 milliliters; hair styling products, insect repellent, air freshener, etc., cannot exceed 120 milliliters. Each tour member is recommended to carry luggage no more than 20 kilograms and hand luggage no more than 7 kilograms for luggage transportation. Finally, when purchasing souvenirs, tour members must pay attention to whether they can be taken out of the country.
To ensure personal safety during travel, it is important to carefully listen to the tour leader's instructions and familiarize yourself with the escape routes when checking into a hotel. After returning to the hotel at night, group members are not allowed to go out, change rooms without permission, or enter another gender group member's room without a chaperone.
Do not play with fire in the room, and pay attention to the safe use of electrical appliances. In case of fire, avoid inhaling thick smoke, use a wet towel to block door gaps and cover your face, and wet your clothes to reduce the risk of catching fire. Do not use the elevator. Be aware of the hotel's escape exits and routes, check if the room windows can be opened, and locate the fire-fighting equipment.
It is important to keep the room key or card safe, check if the facilities are in good condition, and report any problems to the tour leader as soon as possible. The hotel has the right to demand compensation for any damage or dirt to its facilities.
