Where to get your SIM?
*At the airport:
After collecting your luggage from the scan counter, you can walk a bit further to find these SIM CARD offices at the left side.The staffs here can speak English very well and are willing to help you to figure out which package you need for your trip.
If you can not find them, there are lots of 3G/4G SIM CARD counters outside. You can easily recognize them with the board sign “3G 4G” or “SIM CARD”. However, they are not the outlets or franchises of these providers. They just buy SIMs from the stores and sell it for you with higher price and (maybe) underqualified.
Tips to buy the sim here: check your account, check your connection, check valid date and data before leaving the counter.
Or just skip it and then go to the town.
