Instructions for Calling to Cities within China

For international calls to mainland China, remember to dial the international access code first (011 in the U.S.). Then dial China’s country code of 86, followed by the area code, and the local subscriber number. e.g. If you are calling Guangzhou from the U.S., dial 011-86-20-xxxx-xxxx. If you are calling Hengshui, dial 011-86-318-xxx-xxxx.

For domestic calls within mainland China, you do not need an international access code or a country code. However, you do need to dial a 0 before the area code. e.g. If you are calling Guangzhou from another city in China, dial 0-20-xxxx-xxxx. If you are calling Hengshui, dial 0-318-xxx-xxxx.

For international calls to Hong Kong or Macau, dial the international access code (011 in the U.S), followed by the country code of 852 (Hong Kong) or 853 (Macau), and, finally, the 8-digit subscriber number. e.g. For Macau, dial 011-853-xxxx-xxxx.

If you are calling locally in mainland China, Hong Kong, or Macau, simply dial the 7-8-digit subscriber number.
