What other types of expenses should I plan for while in China?
Entertainment in China is generally inexpensive. Transportation options include the public bus (which costs less than 1 RMB per ride) and subway (2 RMB per ride), as well as taxi service which costs 10 RMB (US$1.5) for short distances and up to 30 RMB to go across town or downtown. Many students also opt to buy bicycles while they are in China. New bicycles can be purchased for around 300 RMB (US$45).
