If I can't walk properly, can you provide me with a wheelchair or do I need to have my own?
You'd better have your own, though in some cities we can provide you with a wheelchair that usually we rent from the hotels where you are going to stay, we can not guarantee any wheelchair assistance or accessibility in all the areas where you are going to visit.
We do suggest you take some common medicines with you, such as: the medicines for flu, sore throat, coughing, diarrhoea, etc that you use at home. We strongly suggest you go to see your doctor and take his/her advices as well as the medicines he/she provides.
