36 Money Exchange rate basically identical anywhere, and normally good, about 6.8 now ATMs on campus or tourist locations in Beijing normally support one of the systems with logos on the right. Check on your ATM card Zhao Lan Yuan, outside banks Travelers cheques may have better exchange rate, but there is a fee

37 Power in China 220 Volts. Check your device before you plug it in since US uses 110 V Power plug Type A, similar shape that used in US with slightly smaller gap If your plug has 2 prongs of the same size, there is no problem If one is bigger, or you have 3 prong, you need a adapter. The simplest way is to buy a power strip with universal sockets, available in the market near dorm
