 Language

Chinese Mandarin is the official language both in Beijing and other cities in China. But like in many other cities, people in Beijing also have their own Beijing Dialect which is closely related to Mandarin.

 Telephone Call

There are various options for making international and domestic telephone calls in Beijing and the rest of China, and two basic kinds of phone cards: IP cards and IC cards. These international phone cards can be bought at tobacco shops, supermarkets, hotel lobbies etc. throughout Beijing. Otherwise you can make calls from your hotel room, public phones or telephone bars known as 'Huà bā' (话吧).

 Internet

With the fast development of the computer and internet, you can keep contact easily and conveniently with your families and your friends at anytime by using a computer to get on line. Beijing is no exception. When you come to Beijing for travelling, you can easily find many net bars. The price for you to get on line in Beijing is about CNY3 to CNY10 per hour, depending on the different situation of the facility and environment.

 Post Office

The post office in China runs the whole week. The Beijing International Post Office (Tel: 010-65128107) is located in Yabao Lu, Jianguomen Beidajie, Chaoyang District.

Hello. I sent a parcel from United Kingdom to China on 20/02/2015. Tracking number is RU749385328GB. Can you please check why it takes so long to reach final destination. I can see that my parcel was opened in Beijing and then in Shanghai. Can you explain for what reason it has to be checked in a few places. Thank you.
