In brief: Change schedule
Depending how long before your trip, change your schedule 15 to 30 minutes everyday closer to the time it will be when you arrive in china.
In other words change your "time zone" before you travel.

This is so right theoretically; however in our "fast life style" difficult to achieve. If one is traveling for less than a week for a professional reason, last resort can be taking SleepAids. If going for long term and for leisure it is ok to slowly adapt to a new routine
