⬤ WECHAT(微信)


Why Wechat is so important?
You need it to connect free Wi-Fi at many Chinese Airports.

Many Chinese Airports require you using Chinese Cell phone number to receive a passcode or using Wechat ID to build Wi-Fi connections. New students normally do not have Chinese cellphone number so you have to use Wechat ID to connect Airport Wi-Fi.
