Yes, it is true.  But not all will, only the bigger ones, like the 5 stars or so.  Maybe a few 4 stars.

But be aware, they may offer you a lower rate than banks, and on top may charge you a fee for doing so.

 

And one ;last observation, makes no difference where you exchange money, check each bill carefully to insure that you got no fakes, before leaving the place of exchange

Thakkudu:

have your ever got fakes from Chinese Bank or 5star hotel?.. normally i blindly believe both these places..

In China, I do not trust even my shadow. I got my fake 100.s yuan bills out of ATM machine at a local branch of ICBC Bank. And they refused to exchange them, even if security guard confirmed the bills came out pof machine because he was next to me helping with transaction.

I hated litigating against banks. Even before the bailouts, they could get away with anything.

the bank will exchange it for you

HappyExPat:

ICBC refused to change them, and I even called the Police and wasted 4 hours. Even their security man confirmed my story, and still refused

A:A few years ago, Filipno teachers were beginning to find acceptance in training schools. I think there were special requirements for them to legally get to teach in China. I know that many Filipino teachers found their way into training schools in the southern regions of China.  I do not think they get the same salary as a typical foreigner teacher from a western nation. The benefits are not as numerous too. They are asked to work longer hours. Basically, they are seen as cheap labor, compared to the standard ESL teacher. I have heard of some manipulation of visas and holding of passports. In other words, they are often treated as third-class citizens.  I know of one training school in South China that treats Filipinos very well, but it seems to be an exception than the norm. Extremem caution and due diligence is required for these teachers.  -- nashboroguy
