China generals devolve into arguments and repetition after the first 10 posts. I'm not going to waste my time asking questions there only to get one half-good response.
So anyway, I'm moving to Guangzhou soon and was wondering a few things.
What are some essential goods to bring along beforehand? I was told condoms, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, razors, underwear, and protein powder are key. And being a tall man, I also heard that clothes and shoes are important.
-Essential downloads/apps -- especially ones I won't be able to get while there? I have ZenMate Premium. Are there other VPNs I should consider getting?
-What're the women like there? I was told by girl friend over there that I'll clean up once I arrive. I have a pretty thick beard -- should I consider trimming/shaving it?
-Anything you can tell me about Guangzhou? I'll be living in ZhuJiang New Town.

*Note about the JR Rail Pass*
Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.
Plug your itinerary into Hyperdia to determine ticket costs, then compare to the below JR Pass options:
>7 day Pass: 29,110¥
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥
Please check the /trv/ sticky before asking questions. It's filled with links to great resources, many of them specific to Japan travel.

1,5 month in Peru
10 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Next week I will be going on a 1,5 month backpacking trip through Peru (I'm from the Netherlands), from Aug 16 - Sept 27
I will be visiting Lima for a couple of days, then will probably do the Gringo tour starting at Pisco and visiting Islas de Ballestas, then going to Ica / Huacachina, Arequipa, Puno, and Cusco. I have no real itinerary but am roughly planning on going with the flow as I go.
However, I would like to stay in Arequipa or Cuzco for about a week to follow Spanish classes for a day or 4 or something. After Cusco, I would probably go and take a plane to Iquitos and travel to Lima again.
- Would all this be possible in 1,5 month?
- Any general tips or tricks?
- Should I book my trek to Macchu Pichu beforehand or is it OK to do it on the spot like, 2 days before?
