The Chinese RMB (or Yuan, also known as CNY) is China’s currency. The exchange rate is approximately 7 RMB to the US Dollar, or 7.8 RMB to the Euro. China is relatively affordable for dining out or taking taxis in comparison to Western countries.
Money exchange services are readily available upon arrival in the airport. Beyond that you will find International ATM’s across the city.
ATMs are generally fairly easy to find in most areas of Nanjing. Foreign credit cards are generally accepted, especially Visa and Mastercard. Cards like American Express are a little more risky.
Please be aware that certain internet restrictions apply within China.
NIS has a special dispensation in China, as a school for children of foreign experts, to be able to use an approved, commercial, Virtual Private Network to access websites all over the world for educational purposes. While public debate about current events and news can be seen as an educational opportunity, these are often nuanced conversations that can be misconstrued even if the debate is entered into with the best of intentions. In order to avoid anything that might be seen as offensive, we ask that all attendees please keep all social media posts to conference topics and purely educational discussions that advance the L2 spirit of participants being “a connector.”
If you need/want a SIM card, please purchase at the airport on arrival; HOWEVER, please note that this is not an easy process and you will need a passport and need to complete all sorts of paperwork.
