4. Electricity

Electricity in China is 220 V. If you are travelling from a country that uses 110 V, you may need a converter for electrical devices. There are two types of wall sockets in China (see photo). Some wall outlets only have one of the two socket types. The two-pin socket at the top can take plugs with two flat pins (Type A, as long as the two pins are the same size), or two round pins (Types C/E/F). Standard German plugs should fit this socket. The three-pin socket at the bottom takes Type I pins (same as Australia and New Zealand). You may also find extension packs with universal sockets, which can take UK and other types of plug. If in doubt, bring a universal adapter plug with you. Such adapters can also be bought in China.


5. Credit Cards and Currency

Credit cards are widely accepted in Shanghai, with some exceptions. Most hotels, restaurants and shopping centers accept credit cards, but taxi drivers don’t accept credit cards. ATMs will have signage showing what cards they accept. The following credit cards are widely accepted in China: Master Card, Visa, American Express, JCB and Diners Club. 

Chinese currency (known either as RMB or yuan) can be exchanged at banks, airports and hotels.
