China Currency

China's currency has two names, the official name is the renminbi and was introduced in 1949 at the foundation of the Communist Peoples Republic. The name simply means 'the people's currency'.

Yuan is the name commonly referred to and is unit of the currency, so you would say something will cost 5 yuan or 25 yuan not 5 renminbi or 25 renminbi. It is similar to the way we call our currency 'pound sterling' so you would say something costs 10 pound not 10 sterling.

The word Yuan actually goes back much further than renminbi. It means dollar, and refers to the old silver dollars or pieces of eight used by the European merchants during the middle ages.

China is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination. A majority of visits are trouble free but it is recommended you take out comprehensive travel insurance before you travel.

There is a zero tolerance to drugs in China and raids on bars and nightclubs are common and there are severe penalties for drug-related offences including the death penalty.

It is essential that you carry your passport with you at all times as police carry out random checks.
