Depends on your threat model but since since I think I know what country
your are talking about, might be worth taking more precautions:
* burner phone
* wiped disposable laptop w Tor etc
* trusted VPN (maybe)
* bootable linux like TAILS
* possibly encryption but frowned upon if not outright illegal in a bunch
of countries so would advise against if it makes you more vulnerable on the
ground/at the border to additional scrutiny
* be cautious w entering passwords on devices
Obviously, wifi etc at hotels etc are to be avoided as is talking about
anything sensitive or revealing in cabs, public places etc. I personally
like a little bug buster for hotel rooms - any suggestions?
May not be China -
we are all getting hammered:
m.usatoday.com/article/news/1600269 so beware. You are pretty known as a
researcher in the region so would not be surprised if you are a person of
interest in certain countries.
