Using My No Fee ATM Card in China at the Beijing Airport

withdrawing cash in china

I seem to have bad luck when I fly through China.  I lost my luggage in China, and I’ve been stranded at the airport.  This time I was stranded and needed money and had to use a Chinese ATM.  I didn’t need as much money as I took out, since I was only staying one night!  But I performed the calculation in my head and really goofed!!

I withdrew 6000-yuan.

That 6000-yuan cost me $977.40USD.  The rate that I received was:  6.14 (yuan/USD).
