Can I buy GSM/SIM card in China?

Yes. If you are in China as a foreign tourist it may be useful to get a local prepaid GSM/ SIM card if your phone takes it and is not locked to a network. So you can easily reach or be reached by your guide and travel agent with the China’s phone number.  

There is a huge amount of China Unicom shops (as well as China Mobile) in China (e. g. at Beijing, Shanghai airports) to buy a GSM/SIM card. This is very convenient and cheap for you to make the domestic calls in China. Realize the rates are quite high if you want to chat with the folks back home.
