How to survive the flight to Sanya?
Depending on where you’re coming from, your journey to Sanya could be completely painless or it could go on forever. We’ve compiled some handy travel tips that will help you start your next great escape on the right foot.What to pack in your hand luggage:

  • Firstly, and most importantly, put in your passport, official ID, bank cards and vital medications. Next, you’ll want some entertainment to while away the hours. A juicy book and a laptop filled with your favorite shows are some fantastic options. If you plan to catch up on some sleep, a quality neck pillow and a pair of noise-canceling headphones will also be useful. Finally, make room for a toothbrush and some facial wipes so you’ll hop off the plane looking and feeling fresh.

Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:

  • Make sure you don’t have a sharp object lurking in your carry-on luggage. Other restricted items include explosive or flammable products, such as aerosol cans and bleach, and gels and liquids in containers with a volume of more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).

What to wear on a flight:

  • Your number one priority is to make yourself as comfortable as possible. Dress in loose, breathable clothing and bring a sweater in case it gets cold in the cabin. Opt for a pair of flat, well-fitting shoes as your feet may swell a little during the flight. Leave the stilettos and chunky boots in your checked luggage.
  • Unfortunately, a risk of flying long-haul is developing DVT (deep vein thrombosis), a blood clotting condition caused by prolonged periods of inactivity. To prevent this from happening, take every opportunity to walk around and give your legs a stretch. Compression tights and socks are another great idea to help lower your risk.

How to get through airport security fast when flying to Sanya?
It’s simple — be prepared. We’ve put together some top tips for a fuss-free trip through security. Watch out Sanya, here you come:

  • First things first. Your travel documents and passport will need to be shown to security personnel. Keep them within easy reach so you don’t hold up the queue.
  • Time to strip down. Well kind of. Your jacket, belt, keys and other items in your pocket, like your headphones, will be required to go through the X-ray machine. Make the whole process faster by removing them before your turn.
  • All your electronics, including your phone and laptop, must also be scanned separately.
  • Don’t forget to remove liquids and gels from your carry-on luggage. They often need to be sent through the X-ray machine separately. Each item should be no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and everything must fit inside a single quart-size (one liter), clear zip-close bag.
  • There’s a possibility that you’ll be required to remove your shoes for scanning, so wearing lightweight sneakers is always a good idea.
  • Sharp items like knives are prohibited in the cabin. They’ll be seized at security, so put them in your checked bags.
