Using Skype in China

Skype is a good way to keep in touch with loved ones back home while traveling in China.

But you might not be able to find an internet cafe that will take foreigners, so try a cafe with a computer, or use wi-fi at your hotel or a cafe.

You might have to change the language settings on a Chinese computer to be able to use Skype.

Remember too that if you use Skype to call locals within China, they might not be able to accept calls as they appear as overseas calls, and the receiver has to pay a rate per minute to receive.
