Currency & Exchange

Most major currencies can be exchanged into Chinese currency, which is called Renminbi (RMB). The basic unit is the Yuan or colloquially known as the Kuai. One Yuan is divided into 10 Jiao, which is also called a Mao. One Jiao is further divided into 10 Fen. Foreign currency can be exchanged at airports, border crossings, tourist hotels, some large shopping centers and major branches of Bank of China. Exchange rates are subject to change, so it’s best to check your local bank or the many websites that offer conversion information.
