Harbin & Daqing, China - weather & money

Hello all -

DH is going to China next week on business. He's flying into Harbin and apparently taking a bus on to Daqing. He's never been to China and has no idea what to expect.

Any insight into what type of weather to expect?

Any idea if ATMs are available in the Harbin Airport, or will he need to take US dollars and exchange upon arrival?

Any and all help appreciated!

It's autume in Harbin, the temperature is about 20, Remember to take some warmer clothes.Foreign bills can not be used in china, you need to exchange some RMBs upon your arrival.

thornbird -

Thanks for the weather info. Just wondered if ATMs are readily available, or if DH should exchange currency at the airport upon arrival. Never use a cell phone, so network not an issue, but thank you for your insight.

ATMs are available in every corner of Harbin, the question is that whither they accept your card. you should get the answer from your bank before you go.

Bring enought cash for at least one day is always a good idea for travel.
