Ⅱ. What to Pack
Winter and summer clothes are both necessary. In winter the temperature is between minus 0 to minus 10 degrees. Warm clothes, such as down coats are needed when you are outside. Indoors, however, there are heating radiators and it is warm enough. In summer the temperature is between 25 to 35 degrees. T-shirts and pants (skirts for girls) are necessary. In spring and autumn, you need sweaters and jackets.
The electricity supply system in China is 220V. Your plugs and sockets may be incompatible, so please check before departure. Multi-function power cords and transformers can solve the problem and you can purchase them in advance.
It will cost about 800 to 1000 RMB per month for living including food, telephone, transportation and so on. Currency exchange services are available at the Beijing airport, however, the banks close to our university probably have a better rate. We suggest you bring about US$500 for the first month since you may need to buy some daily necessities.
