Sending packages—take your items to the post office—buy the boxes there and they will help pack it. If you pack it before you go, they will open it to check the items. Some things cannot be sent.
Receiving a package—they send a notice to the address on the package—go to the main post office with your passport to claim it
Proper addressing is very important!!. USE the Office of International Cooperation & Exchange address.
Sending packages is time consuming and I suggest going to the post office at a quiet time. It is fairly straightforward it just takes a long time.
Queuing in an orderly manor is not a custom of the Chinese. You have to push your way to the front of the queue, just like they do!
The main post office road is Jianshe Road. #18 bus goes there directly.
