Before visiting China

To stay connected in China, it is recommended that participants setup international roaming in advance before visiting China. Please note that from past experiences, roaming will connect you to your home country's internet instead of local network, and as such some Chinese apps may not work as intended.
Please note that payment option will be limited to cash, as e-banking in China are limited to Wechat Pay or AliPay. Both Wechat Pay or AliPay will need to be linked to either a bank account opened in China or the major credit cards. The process to set up Wechat Pay or AliPay may be complicated. Accordingly, we recommend taking a taxis for your last mile transport and using cash as payment, as coaches and ride-share apps will need to be paid using WePay or AliPay.

Please also prepare CNY of multiple denominations, as the taxis are not likely to be able to provide change due to the rarity of cash payments.


From the Shenzhen Baoan Airport and the Guangzhou Baiyun Airport to the Hotel

We estimate the travel time to be 1.5 hours to and from Guangzhou airport, and 1 hour for Shenzhen airport, subject to road conditions. While both Baoan Airport and Baiyun Airport offer long range bus services to Dongguan, it may not be possible to use these services as payment are made through WePay and AliPay. Therefore, it is recommended that attendees take a taxi directly from the Airports to the Hotel (a reminder to use cash, and bring plenty of change, 200RMB should be enough). Please note enough cash are necessary due to the difficulties of using electronic payments. Please display "东莞会展国际大酒店" to your taxi driver to show the intended destination. Please also show the driver "请帮我开发票,谢谢" to let the driver know that you would like to have a receipt for taxi.
Alternatively, the Local Organisation Committee might provide pick-up service in Guangzhou Baiyun and Shenzhen Bao’an airports. Therefore, we would encourage using either the GZ Baiyun airport or the SZ Bao'an airport.
