Tourist hotels provide basic postal services. If you want to send large ticket items such as antiques or cultural relics that are under customs control, you will have to go to the local branch of the international post office, instead of the small post offices found in hotels.
You can also send postcards, letters and express mail to any place in the world via China Post, FedEx, DHL or China Air Express. However, all publications (such as books, magazines and newspapers) and parcels must be sent from an authorized post office.
Faxes can generally be sent from any hotel business center. If your hotel doesnĄ¯t have a fax machine, try finding a small photocopy shop near your location. They usually will have one available for public use.
