Travel notes


■ Lodging
From January 2014, we will have relevant hotel recommendation information on our homepage. Now we are in the process of negotiating price and quota with Hotel Canton. At the same time, you can learn more about hotels in Guangzhou and China through http://www.cnta.com/ website.

■ Chinese Embassies and Consulates
The People's Republic of China Ministry of foreign affairs website http://www.fmprc.gov.cn/eng/ (overseas delegation and consulates, China >) you can find your country Chinese consulates contact.

■ Climate
China has 4 climatic zones, from frigid zone to tropical zone. In the north of the Yangtze River, it is very cold in winter and hot and dry in summer. In the south of the Yangtze River, the winters are relatively warm, but the temperature is very high and the humidity is high in summer. From April to June, and from September to November, it is a golden time to travel to China. For weather conditions in major cities of China, please login: http://www.cma.gov.cn.

■ Currency/Credit Card
The official currency of China is RMB (CNY), also known as yuan or block (1 yuan =10 Jiao =100). 1 euro =9.99542CNY. There is no limit to the amount of foreign currency that tourists bring into China, but they must be declared to the customs. The U.S. dollar and the euro can be converted at any international hotel, while foreign exchange offices and banks can offer a more favorable exchange rate. If you want to change the remaining RMB into foreign currency when you leave China, you must keep your bank exchange receipt. Each person is restricted to carry only 6000 RMB when entering and leaving China. A few banks can use your EC card for cash. You can check the exchange rate at http://www.pbc.gov.cn/1 US dollar = 6.12 RMB (1 Euro = 8.19 RMB on August 26, 2013). Currencies in Scotland and Northern Ireland are not convertible. I suggest that you prepare cash (US dollars, euros). Credit cards (such as Visa, Masters, American Express, Diner Club) are available in most international hotels and shopping malls.

■ Take a taxi
When you leave the Convention and Exhibition center, the fare to Baiyun International Airport is about 100 RMB per person.

■ Power Supply
The power supply in China is 220 volts and 50 weeks alternating current. The local use is two way socket and some three way socket. Most hotels and hotel bathrooms are equipped with 220 volts and 110 volts of sockets. But outside the bathroom, only 220 volts are available. Although you can borrow the power converter from the hotel, we still advise you to bring your own plug.

■ Notice of Entry
Most foreign tourists must bring visas into mainland China. If you want to apply for a visa, you need to prepare the following documents: Passport (validity of passport more than 6 months) Fill out the visa application form with a complete passport photo on the homepage of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China: http://www.fmprc.gov.cn/eng/(Overseas Delegation => Chinese Embassy and Consulate), and you can find where you are. National embassies and consulates will download and print visa application forms or get further application information.

■ Health/Vaccination
There is no special immunization requirement in mainland China unless tourists come from yellow fever areas. Since there is no mandatory vaccination requirement for direct entry from Europe to China, it is recommended that you re-vaccinate against hepatitis A, tetanus, polio and diphtheria before leaving Europe. In emergencies, embassies and consulates can provide doctors who can speak English and German. Most hotels provide their own first-aid services or organize medical assistance. In large cities, the level of medical and medical treatment has reached a high level. You can even find medical services specifically for foreign personnel. Beware of non peeled fruits, frozen food, ice cream and tap water. We strongly recommend buying accidental injury and medical insurance to deal with any medical expenses. You can browse the following website: http://www.moh.gov.cn (China Health and safety).

■ Language/Traffic
The official language of China is Putonghua. However, there are many kinds of dialects everywhere. Business English is spoken mainly in tourist centers (such as international hotels). We recommend that you take your hotel card with you when you take a taxi or ask the front desk to write a Chinese address.

■ Mail/Telephone/Internet

Mail: You can buy stamps at the post office or at the front desk of a hotel. These places also provide postcards and stationery.

Tel: China's international code is +86. It's very expensive to make international calls from hotels, while domestic calls are often free. Most cities have telephone booths, where you can use the phone card to make international calls. In most cases, your mobile phone can be used in big cities. You can also purchase a Chinese payment card in your store on your mobile phone.

Internet cafes: you can find Internet cafes in big cities or tourist centers.

 ■ Safety
For tourism, China is a very safe country. However, when you visit the main tourist attractions, be careful of thieves and pickpockets. So we suggest that you keep the valuables in the hotel.

■ Time Zone
Despite its vast territory, China has only one time zone (Beijing time). If it were not for the summer time, it would be the standard European time plus 7 hours. If it is the summer time system, it is the standard time plus 6 hours.

■ Tips
Although tipping is not routine, tipping in high-end international hotels and restaurants has become routine. But tips are not well known in rural areas. There is no specific standard for tipping, which is much lower with tourists themselves, generally around 10%. Tips are usually included in the taxi fare, but in high-end hotels and restaurants there is an additional 10% - 15% service charge.

■ Baiyun International Airport
Baiyun International Airport can take the Airport Express Line to different urban areas. You can visit the following website at the departure time: http://www.kgkx.com Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport Airport Express Transport Co., Ltd. Taxi is a convenient and comfortable way to reach the urban area. It takes about an hour from the airport to the city, and the cost is about 120 RMB.

■ Traffic

Taxi: taxi is convenient and convenient. The door of the taxi is sticky with unit price tag. Ask the taxi driver to use the meter. The starting price of a taxi is about 10 yuan. Since most taxi drivers don't know much English, it's better to ask the staff of your hotel to write down your destination in Chinese and ask for a Chinese business card to facilitate your travel and return to the hotel.

Public transport: Guangzhou has a perfect subway network, and all the stations have English signboards. Of course, there will also be traffic congestion during rush hours.
