Travel and take charge in China
Nowadays, more and more foreigners come to China, and many of them are the first time to travel in China. Here are some suggestions for them to prepare the trip. For many business travelers to Shanghai, I would suggest to take a weekend to visit Beijing. Shanghai is the largest commercial city in China, but it is not a typical city that represents China. If you want to claim you’ve really been to China, you should plan a short trip to Beijing, and visit the Forbidden City, visit the Great Wall, and visit some Royal Gardens. Even you don’t go to these famous places,it is also a good idea to experience the wide streets and the narrow Hutong. If you know some simple Chinese words, it will make you look better and friendlier to local people, which make your trip more enjoyable.Do you want to learn more? check out the post right here
If foreigners wish to directly use the phone numbers assigned by their domestic telecommunication operators, they should initialize international roaming service with their local provider before their entry to China. Foreigners shall initialize international roaming services of their mobile phone numbers with their domestic mobile telecommunication operators. Additionally, your domestic mobile telecommunication operator shall sign the agreement on international roaming services with China Mobile.
Your international roaming service charges will be collected according to the applicable charging rates as specified by your domestic mobile telecommunication operator. If foreigners enter China with their domestic mobile phones, they can buy SIM phone cards and pre-paid phone cards in Shanghai or Beijing to enjoy all the businesses and services provided by China Mobile. If your domestic operator and China Mobile haven’t signed the roaming agreement, the international roaming service will be unavailable through your domestic phone number.
There are many differences between cities in China and the western cities. You may find the traffic rule different (at least the way people follow the rules), the language is different, and many aspects of everyday life are different. Don’t worry. Just relax. It is not necessary to always figure out which way is right and which way is wrong. Just relax, and enjoy the difference. It is just because of the difference that you travel, isn’t it?
