Tips about Moving to China
Travelling
Moving to China can represent a significant challenge for even the most hardened expat. China is the third biggest country in the world by land mass and has the largest population at just over 1.33 billion people (23% of the world’s total population). Because of the large numbers of people living in the cities they are extremely busy and crowded places that are full of the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life.
 
 
China is a place that is rich with culture and history, both of which centre around their ancient civilization. Because it is such a vast country it is a fascinating place for expats to live in and explore, and there are many places to visit, from the ruins of the Neolithic settlements through to the ancient trade routes.

Adapters, Plugs, Wall Sockets and Electrical Current in China
Travelling

Preparing for your electrical devices and electronics on your trip to China

What adapter do I need? Will my computer plug work? What's the electrical current? What do the wall sockets look like? Why oh why have we not all come together to decide a common electrical current and wall socket for the world? It makes travel difficult, especially if you're coming from the North America, a few countries in South America or Japan - the only places that use 110V instead of 220V. But anyway, armed with a bit of knowledge and some adapters, you'll be able to use your electronic devices.
