Choose an easy plan

As mentioned before, China Unicom is the right carrier to choose.
Like the other two carriers, China Unicom also has too many plans with complex fee structures.

We suggest you do not waste time to read their introductions as many ordinary Chinese people won’t understand them as well.

The best way is to choose a Data pack designed for visitors.

 Where to buy the Data pack

You can order the Data pack when you book our Airport services. The driver will give you the SIM when he meets you at Airport.
