Whether you’re walking Beijing’s Forbidden City or riding through downtown Xi’an, Visa is accepted at places all over, including hotels, airlines, top restaurants and shopping centers. China has added over 350 million acceptance locations in the last year and that number is only expected to grow. And remember, pay in local currency when using your Visa card in China to avoid currency conversion fees.
Need cash in China? With around 400,000 ATMs in China that accept Visa for cash withdrawal, there’s no need to take out local currency before you travel, and taking out cash should be simple and convenient. Plus, getting cash from an ATM while you’re abroad can actually be less expensive.
