Chinese Yuan

History, Travel, and Money converge in China whenever you pull out your wallet. China is a very robust cash based economy where people will often carry around huge sums rather than use credit cards or bank instruments.

Don't count on telling the different denominations by the person on the bill - Mao, still held in great esteem throughout the country, is on every single bill. Travel spots and pretty landscapes adorn the opposite sides.
