      When on a business trip, you need a business partner first. Before the business trip, many details should be arranged about the visiting spots, factory or trade companies (agent). Now English level has improved a lot in China, when the international buyer visits Chinese suppliers, the supplier will give out a schedule for learning and entertaining to know products and factories and visiting scenic spots and arrange some staff to solve the language problem. Good preparation is a must when traveling to a place that you have never vistied before.

      I travel to China quite often to look for suppliers. It can be really overwhelming sometimes. Too many suppliers to choose from for the same type of product. Always better if you know someone you can relatively trust and that knows their way around.

      Hi Ociortan1127,

      Plan your visit well and try meet many supplier / factories before you place orders.
      Unlike USA most of factories work on Saturday.
      Language is not a problem in cities like Shanghai, Beijing or Guangzhou.
      International credit cards are not acceptable in small cities so change some USD to RMB for small payments.
      Electrical supply is 220V not 110V so keep am adapter

      people have posted some use tips in forum, read them if possible.

      Welcome to China!

      Hi SEOSuperMom,

      Great advice here! The part about the toilets is so true it is not like America at all. If you are in the big cities you can find clean places but in the small ones watch out. I remember a time my wife and I went to a small town and they had no restrooms to sit on just holes in the ground.

      At the best restaurant in this small town they had plastic tubs on the ground where we selected our food to eat. To say the least I had white rice and well cooked if you know what I mean.

      For the most part in China I always feel safe and the people will really help you if needed I have found. It sure is different than the Western world food is so different.
