Travel and stay in China
Traveling to China has its own challenges! The following tips will help first time visitors to China: One should take along some usual medicines, such as those for colds, diarrhea, etc. when traveling. Medical facilities (both Western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine) are widely available in China and are usually very inexpensive. China's currency is Yuan. Foreign currency is generally not accepted at most shops. You can use your international debit cards at ICBC or HSBC ATMs to get local currency. Direct phones are very common in China. You can also buy a SIM card from any China Unicom or China Mobile stores. Electricity supply is 220 volts. Universal adapters may be needed since China uses type I or type G sockets. All foreign visitors require visas to visit China. Chinese people are delighted if you make any attempt to speak Mandarin, even if it is only a couple of words! Ni Hao is a customary greeting in China. Traveling during China's national holidays may be difficult as most local transports are fully booked. China is generally very safe and has a very low crime rate per capita.
