- Question: How can I use the postal service?
Most tourist hotels provide postal services; however, if you want to send important items such as antiques or cultural relics that are under customs control, you must consult the local branch of the International Post Office.
In addition to regular postal services, the International Post and Telecommunications Office handles remittances, money orders, telegraphic money transfers, international and domestic telephone and telegram services and local telephone service, in the same building there is a customs office for those who need customs clearance. Additionally, packages can be collected from this office.
You can send postcards, letters, parcels and express mail to any place in the world via China Post (with the green logo), FedEx or China Air Express. Visitors should not wrap parcels before they are taken to the post office since the contents must be examined before the parcel may be mailed. Also, some forms of publications such as books, magazines and newspapers must be examined by an authorized post office.
