Length

  • 1 km (1,000 m) = 2 li = 0.621 mile = 0.54 sea mile
  • 1 m = 3 chi = 3.281 ft = 1.094 yard
  • 1 li = 0.5 km = 0.311 mile = 0.27 sea mile
  • 1 chi = 0.333 m = 1.094 ft
  • 1 mile = 1.609 km = 3.219 li = 0.868 sea mile
  • 1 ft = 0.305 m = 0.914 chi
  • 1 sea mile = 1.852 km = 3.704 li = 1.15 mile

Square Measures

  • 1 hectare = 15 mu = 2.47 acre
  • 1 mu = 0.067 hectare = 0.164 acre
  • 1 acre = 0.405 hectare = 6.07 mu

Weight

  • 1 kg = 2 jin = 2.205 pound
  • 1 jin = 0.5 kg = 1.102 pound
  • 1 UK pound = 0.454 kg = 0.907 jin

Volume

  • 1 liter = 1 sheng = 0.22 UK gallon
  • 1 UK gallon = 4.546 liter = 4.546 sheng

Electricity

The electricity used in China is 220 volt AC. Wash rooms in many middle- and high-end hotels are equipped with transformer plugs for electric shavers and hair dryers. For safety purpose, bringing an adapter along with you is a much better option.
