overseas. Be aware, however, that not all brands of cards offer English instructions so
would be best sticking to the two main brands (China Netcom and China Telecom). You
can buy them in the post offices and phone shops.

Mobile phones if you have international calls then you should be able to use your Mobile
phone. It may buy a local SIM card. But because only use the SIM card can be very
expensive, so we recommend using SIM card with IP card together for international calls.

Phone bars for international calls, other good places to go are the phone bars, generally
found around university areas. To make a call simply walk in, choose a vacant phone. The
payment can be found on the list of phone bars.
