Read the FAQs below before contacting us.

Can I submit a guest post for The Helpful Panda?

You can write for us if you’ve been to China before and you’re a good writer (see this page) or as an advertiser or writing on behalf of an organization (see this page).

Can I access the internet in China?

Yes you can, but if you’re using Wi-Fi (like in your hotel) all the major Western websites and apps are blocked. So if you want to use sites like Google, Gmail, YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, you’ll need to get a VPN before you go. See this page for help.

What apps should I download for China?

Our top three are Google Translate, Alipay, and a VPN app so you can access the internet. See this page for more info.

Do I need a visa to visit China?

Yes you do, but for a really brief stay you may not need one. See this page for more info.

Is China safe?

Yes, China is a really safe country for foreigners. See this page for more info.
