Currency
Chinese Yuan (CNY) is in general the only currency accepted in regular stores and restaurants in China.  Payment in cash is still the most welcome, although VISA and MasterCard are widely acceptable in hotels, shopping centers and large restaurants.  Local currency exchange is possible at foreign currency exchange counters (at the airport or some hotel counters) and banks on presentation of your passport.  However, you are encouraged to make the exchange before your arrival.  Check

For Your Electronics
The power supply in China is 220 Volts/ 50Hz AC.  The power sockets are for two or three pronged plugs.  See the typical layout of sockets used in China at
Wikipedia.  Though converters may be borrowed in some hotel, it is recommended that you bring your own.
