Just wonder how accessible Internet cafe's are in China. We are headed for Beijing, Xian, Chongqing, Yichang, Wuhan, Guilan, Kunming and Dali.
Also (and sorry for the next stupid question) but how are they to use of the set up is all in Chinese?
Any help would be appreciated.
Pretty easily accessible, but do be warned that some websites eg BBC, Geocities, Tripod and various blogging sites are blocked. Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo might also be chancy.
The keyboards are the same as any Western keyboards. The icons for the programs that I imagine you'd need to use are still all the same, so you shouldn't have problems.
this question is useful
and, there are USB port, card reader, cd or dvd writer in the computers there?
some has the usb port but not card reader.
Internet cafes are easily accessible in many cities. Some are open 24 hrs and some till midnight.If you want to locate an internet cafes, ask some yong guys/girls.If you ask them as "internet cafe', no one will understand...say as "e-mail" then they understand.
Set up is nothing new..as you find elsewhere.
YOU will find some websites specially gamail is very difficult to open...I could not open atall for nearly 1hr..Finally when i opened, i could not read my mail.
In these internet cafes, the CPU is enclosed so take the help of a guy who is incharge of internet cafe.
In some cities,the fee is Yuan 2- 2.5 per hour and in some it is 3.5yuan. You need to give a deposit of 10 yuan before you sit in front of the computer.
Thanks for the help everyone.
