General you need not take Chinese currency to China since you can easily exchange you US$ into Chinese RMB in hotels and banks. However if you would like to have local currency upon your arrival in China, it is okay that you may take a volume of Chinese currency less than 20,000 RMB without declaration at the customs. You are required to declare your import of Chinese currency exceeding 20,000 RMB.Simon Huang Replied on 2013-10-06

Because of the large size, most airlines require it to be checked-in. Specificly, it is suggested that you contact Air China and provide your detailed flight journey information as the rule for the domestic and international is different.Ruby Zhao Replied on 2013-09-20
