I'm traveling to china in a few weeks, for a few weeks. We're going from Beijing to several outer areas, staying in hostels, figuring things out as we go. What do we need to be prepared for?

Specifically I'm wondering:
- what if any vaccinations we should get
- what medicine to bring along (would anything be confiscated?)
- what you recommend packing for this style of trip (in one medium backpack each, both clothes and entertainment for long bus rides)
- other thoughts?
Here's our basic itinerary: Beijing - Datong - Hohhot (inner mongolia) - Xian - Chengdu - Chongqing - 3 Gorges River Cruise - Huangshan - Suzhou - Shanghai - Beijing.We have already handled visas. I'll of course be bringing my camera. Are batteries easy to come by? Should i bring my recharger?
