China Mattress

Those of us who live in China know the reality of a China mattress -- it is hard and extremely uncomfortable. Unfortunately, this doesn't stop the bed manufacturers from making beds all the same. Chinese people typically prefer hard beds and believe they are better for their backs. However, most foreigners are used to having softer beds and will have a hard time getting used to anything else. If you find yourself moving to China, you might want to get used to sleeping on the floor for a few weeks. Sleeping on a mattress in China will be quite similar. Fortunately, there are some tips that you can take to make your China mattress a bit more bearable.

Survive your China mattress

The first tip I always recommend for anyone moving into a new apartment in China is to simply ask your future landlord to replace the bed for you. Often times, the landlord will own multiple apartments within the same building. If you find yourself moving into an apartment that has a severely uncomfortable bed, it won't hurt to ask if there are any replacement beds. If you are a Westerner, you may want to use the excuse that you aren't used to sleeping on hard beds to make the landlord sympathetic. The worst thing that will happen is that the landlord will say "no". Move on to tip number two if this happens.

The second tip is to go out and buy a new bed yourself. The only problem with this tip is that it is still hard to find a bed comfortable for foreigners in a Chinese store. Also, you will need to find a way to transport your mattress back to your apartment. A better and easier suggestion might be to purchase a new mattress online. There are a few mattress dealers online that cater to Western needs by offering softer mattresses. Seek these dealers out if you want to save your back while in China. You may then use the old mattress as a spare bed for visitors.

The third tip is a compromise for those who don't want to take the drastic step of buying a new China mattress. Look into the idea of a mattress topper instead. The topper will go on top of your current mattress, but underneath your bed sheet. If you purchase a quality mattress topper, you will find that it gives enough support for you in your sleep.

As you are looking to make the most out of your China mattress, you should look into following one of the three tips above. There is no need for you to suffer through uncomfortable mattresses for roughly 8 hours every day. Take the steps to improve your China mattress situation as soon as you can!
