Business Travel in China

Internet

Most major four and five star hotels offer internet access and the bill is usually added on to your room tab. Many hotels also have their own business centres with internet access provided at a small cost. In addition, internet cafes do a booming business in Shanghai, Beijing, Nanjing, Hong Kong, Xian and most other tourist spots. Even smaller and more remote cities usually have some kind of internet cafe for those who need to get their regular email fix. Prices vary of course, from RMB10 per hour to RMB50 per hour in parts of Hong Kong and Shanghai. There are also a few internet bars popping up around Shanghai and Beijing, where internet access is provided free for those buying a drink or something to eat. In Shanghai, "Raise the Red Lantern" on Huashan Lu is one such spot. Regarding the quality of the typical phone line in China, it can just sustain transferring up to 1 MB of data at a time.
