Generally, internet service is available in the business center of the hotel you are lodging. In some certain rooms of hotels, internet access is equipped and you could use your own computer to surf on the internet. Also, internet cafes are easily available in all the tourist cities in China, where internet service at an affordable price would be offered.
Please be aware that certain popular social media are banned in China, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google etc.
Many mobile phones have global roaming service, with which calls could be made easily. While the charge of cellphones’ global roaming service is quite expensive, buying a SIM card in China and using it on your cell phone while traveling in China is suggested here, which is much cheaper. Since SIM card is pre-charged in China, you just need to insert it into your cell phone and calls could be made right away.
IDD service is available in the hotels and post offices. Phone cards could be purchased in the post offices, hotels and newsstands on the streets. Please pay attention that telephone booths on the street are mostly for local calls and IDD is unworkable there.
During your China travel, postal service is available in the hotels you are lodging, where overseas postcards and letters could be sent. When posting important items like antiques and cultural relics that are under customs control, asking for the help of the local branch of the international post office is essentially required. During the tour, when you want to post something, you could ask for advice from our guides and they would be pleased to help.
