Dear Ms. Mary Ma,
I am back from China now and would like to take a moment out of my busy schedule to let you know that your company and your guide Rogin Lee are fantastic. Rogine made my tour of China, his depth of knowledge is incredible and his presentations and introductions were indepth and interesting. Rogin presented China's past and present in a new light. This China tour with Rogin surpassed what I was expecting from any China tour company. I would like to extend my thanks to yourself, Rogin Lee and Mr. Wong, the driver.
Sincerely,
Lee A. Gravesen

We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way! After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Before you depart for China it is advisable that you have some basic knowledge on how to recognize Chinese currency and identify fake money as well.

China's legal tender is Renminbi ( Abbreviation: RMB), literally meaning "People's Money", issured by the People's Bank of China. Short official name: CNY (China Yuan), but the short name RMB is also often used. Its symbol: ¥; Monetary unit: Yuan (元) and Fractional units: Jiao (角) and Fen (分).

you may ask "Can I use a credit card in China and how to use it?". It is a question which often lingers in the minds of travelers who are going to visit China.

Actually credit cards are widely accepted in bars, restautants and large retail outlets in the major cities in China. Most stores, super markets and hotels in the second tier cities will also accept them. But for remote areas and smaller cities, only cash can be used.

Generally speaking, China is a very ATM friendly country, espcially in the large cities such Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hongkong, Macao and the list can be much longer. Most of the local ATMs machines accept Visa and Master. CITIBANK card and HSBC are also very popular in China because Citibank and HSBC have agreement with UnionPay. For other cards, you may check the ATMs you are going to use and see if they have the logos and signs for your credit cards. Then how to use ATMs in China?

Before packing for your China tour, it is necessary to understand the electricity in China, its plugs and socket system as well.

Electricity in China
Basically there are two main standards for voltage and frequency in the world. One is the standard of 120 volts at a frequency of 60 Hz, and the other is the standard of 220–240 volts at 50 Hz. China uses generally 220V, 50HZ, AC (Hong Kong is 200V; Taiwan is 110V).

To tip or not to tip in China is a question which has confused many foreign visitors. Those against tipping in China argue that China has no tradition of tipping; those for tipping in China think that China is changing and tipping has become more and more popular as a kind of etiquette as well as bonuses for service providers like that in the west.

How to choose a hotel in China is very important in the course of preparation for your China trip. Here are some useful tips for your China hotel bookings for your reference.

China hotel star Rating system
For the past 20 years, the Chinese government has gradually established an fairly effective hotel star rating system which has classified all qualified hotels in China into five categories – Five Star, Four Star, Three Star, Two Star and One Star ( or youth hostels). The higher level of a hotel's star rating system, the better service and high rates you will expect. But The number of stars of a hotel may not necessarily match its service level.

Siting or squatting? That is a question for many travelers. Squatting toilets are still quite popular in China. Though it may seem uncomfortable and rather too primitive, the squatting position helps you relax your puborectalis muscle and straightens your rectum, reducing the possibilty of getting constipated and easily having waste exvacuated.
