China has been opening up to westerners over the last 20 years. Australians now visit China as part of organised tours, on stopovers on the way to Europe, on day trips from Hong Kong (to Shenzhen) and also for trade fairs.
An increasing number of Chinese nationals are visiting Australia on holidays and to study. Destination Wollongong and Wollongong Uni (amongst others) have been fostering this growth.
The Currency Exchange keeps a stock of Chinese Yuan, but it is best to order them in advance if you can – especially if you are travelling with a group. We can usually only source 100 Yuan notes (about A$20 equivalent), but may have some smaller if we have bought them in from customers returning from China. Chinese money is also sometimes referred to as Renminbi – this is simply the transalation of the word “Currency”, whereas Yuan (pronounced Yoo-En) is a closer translation for dollar.
ATMs will be available in most cities but may be limited beyond the city limits. All ATMs will dispense local currency. If you are taking a Cash Passport to China it is best to load your funds in Australian dollars. Many of the main tourist hotels have an ATM in the lobby. This is a safer environment to withdraw your cash.
