Yes...hotels that cater to westerners will even give you an English invoice.
Taxis, restaurants and stores will always give you one, but they will be in Chinese, but still a normal reciept.  
If they don't give you one then say "Fāpiào" and they will know to give you one.  Because I am here on business and expense almost all costs I have become a master of getting reciepts for everything.

ah, thanks. Been trying to figure out the Chinese word for a long time. Google translate doesn't translate 'receipt' very well.

Because the literal translation for this is "invoice" if you Google it. Threw me off at first too.

Big places will give you one, all you have to do is ask.  The smaller and cheaper the place the more you have to push to get one, and the more likely it will be fake (government tax that they would have to pay, fakes work for most expense reports anyway).  If you are buys from the little street vendor, you're not going to get receipt.

Hotels no problem as long as they were legally able to house you.

Taxis as long as you take a real one.  Black taxis, mototaxis, and the three wheeled little flying dragons you won't get one.

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
