How to contact my family when I travel in China?

updated on: 2008-05-26  source:
        You can always use the hotel telephone. But be aware that it could be as expensive as US$3 per minute. On the Yangtze cruise ships, it could be $20 per minute as they are using satellite telephone.

  Suggestions:  

  #1: leave the phone numbers at home and ask them to call you;

  #2: send faxes from the business centers at the hotels and ships;

  #3: send emails from those business centers at the hotels and ships (note: you can not bring your own email account there as China's ISPs and ICPs are independent).
