Before you take off, you have to pack all your stuff and decide what to bring with you. Investigate what you should take and learn something about airport:
1.What should be in your luggage: Food? (What you can bring and what you can not, check the permissions from customs ) What kind of electrical appliance you need take (laptop? Camera? Hair dryer? Rice-maker?) And is the plug the same with China? Clothes? Check the local weather and decide which clothes you need to take with you and which ones you can mail them later. Other stuff (Books? Towel?)
2.You need to be aware that the reasons of what you should bring: e.g. stuff you can not get in England or it has huge difference in price between China and England. Find tips from those who are already in England, probably in Warwick by blogs.
3.What you should not put in your luggage: find related regulations in airport website and make sure that you will not do anything against law whether at home or abroad.
4.Take a plane: Where and when should you check in for your flight ticket? What if you are asked to open your luggage cases? What things are not permitted to bring to a plane according to different airplane company? Any tips for long distance flight?
5.Shopping: What can you buy in an airport duty free? Could those commodities bring into a plane directly? Can you shop on a plane? If you go back how can you get drawback before leaving?
