Alternatively to bringing local currency you could download WeChat app and store credit card details on there and use the application to pay.

Did you have success getting wechat to work with foreign credit cards? I have a Chinese number but cant get verified without mainland bank account or id.

Wechatpay and alipay are problematic to set up unless you have a Chinese bank account. In other words, they don't work for the average foreign visitor.

I was able to use my credit card in many places in China but not in Xi'an. Cash is still king so please carry a decent amount with you just in case.
