China Travel Tips for Australian Customers
1, ATM machines in China
ATM machines are on almost every corner in cities in China and they are a convenient and easy way to withdraw local currency (RMB or Chinese Yuan). Most Australian ATM cards work in these machines and an English menu is available. ATM cards with the Cirrus symbol on the reverse side of the card are able to access the machines. The exchange rate from an ATM machines is much better than for cash exchanges. Machines allow CNY 2000-2500 approx (350 Australian Dollars) withdrawal each time. Australian bank fees apply so check with you bank before your come however this method should still provide funds cheaper than exchanging cash. Take normal security precautions when using any ATM.
Exchanging Australia Dollars in cash is easy and they are accepted readily at bank and hotel. There is no need to bring US Dollars from home. Traveller’s cheques are not easily cashed these days.
2, Luggage weight allowance in China
Qantas now gives a 30kg baggage weight allowance for economy passengers, Chinese airline companies allow 20kg. Fly domestically in Chinese with excess baggage will usually attract addition baggage fees.

The Chinese government doesn’t recognize dual nationality. If you are holding a dual nationality, please apply China visa and present yourself as an Australia at all times.
