Must-sees in China

  • Dali
  • Dali is nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas in Western China and is frequented by foreign and Chinese tourists alike. This a top spot for fans of mountain climbing.

A deep dive on yuan renminbi

The name 'renimbi' literally means 'peoples currency'. It's the legal currency of mainland China.



It's easily exchanged in Hong Kong and Macau but it's not the official currency there.

The most commonly used bills for Chinese yuan are the 1, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 notes.

Will Use Again

I was very pleased with the cost and speed of the transaction with Travelex I had to obtain Mexican pesos less than a week before leaving for Mexico. There were no outlets in my area so I used the UPS delivery and the cost was reasonable and the delivery time was as promised. Definitely will use again when next foreign trip arises.

This is a great service

This is a great service. I Ordered online, it was the going transfer rate, and it was delivered in two days. Now how convenient is that. It was most convenient for me. It meant that I didn't have to waste time at the airport at the money exchange counter. I was able to be on my way , and start my vacation immediately.

I always purchase currency online for pick up at the store. There is a slightly better price. This time I was able to get miles on UA equal to my purchase price. Location is convenient to work. The clerk is always friendly. Completing the pick up take relatively little time.

Good service to have for foreign travel, although it's fairly complex, as in you have to provide them with everything, including the kitchen sink, in order to purchase a card! Once purchased, it's easy to reload!

I was at a resort town in Mexico

I was at a resort town in Mexico, only one ATM accepted the Travelex card. Small communities are maybe not the best place to test Travelex. Now that I know this and where/when I can access machine I will plan better. This machine was part of a large banking corporation.
