It’s come to our attention that there’s an error in the Beijing city guide. (We printed the map from page 291 on page 293.)
We’ve fixed the ebook and the digital chapters, but if you’ve bought a copy of the book already you can get a corrected copy of pages 292 and 293 here.
Until recently, it was relatively easy to get a Chinese visa. The situation has changed beginning about mid March and it is expected to remain unstable until well after the Olympics.
It is now impossible to get a 6 or 12 month multiple entry business visa.
It is now impossible to get entries longer than 30 days.
In many embassies and consulates it would appear impossible to get a double entry tourist visa.
It has been reported that beginning July, it may be difficult to impossible to get…
I am confused about the Yangshuo bus stations.
If I come from Guilin the bus will stop at Yangshuo North bus station. Correct?
The map I have of Yangshuo shows a bus station on the roundabout of Diecui and Pantao Roads. Is this the north or south bus station? Or is it an old bus station no longer used?
I am staying at Greenforest which is just near West Street...
Or do I just…
Oops, I put this in the 'north east Asia' section instead of here.
Just wondering if anyone has experience of 'Guizhou forerunner college'. My wife and I are thinking of volunteering there for a year or two and can't seem to find any reviews anywhere. We'd be interested to hear from anyone who has been there or knows anything about the institution. Cheers
I'd like to attend a football match in Shanghai (Shanghai Greenland Shenhua F.C.) with my young daughter, and I'm wondering if anyone has ever attended a soccer game in China and could provide some insights. Is the atmosphere relatively family-friendly, or do the matches attract the laddish element? I've been to several games in Japan, but this would be the first time in China.
Hi, I'll be travelling in late July. I would like to go from Hong Kong to Xingping in one day. The plan is HK public transit to the border, cross by foot to Shenzen, then train from Shenzen to Guilin (arrives at 3:30pm). From there I would take a bus to Yuangshuo, then another bus to Xingping. Are there any problems with doing this on one day?
Thanks in advance!
The issue is that I can't really afford multiple 120-180Y entrance fees of Crescent moon lake and the Mogao caves. Although I'd be happy to see them from afar. If I'm not buying entry tickets, is there even a point to stopping in Dunhuang, or is it impossible to appreciate it without paying? I'd hate to…
Have already searched TT for that but the posts are mainly dealing with the opposite direction.
I cannot find the bus schedule from Kanding even on the Chinese web sites. Also would like to know whether there are tourist bus in addition to public buses and if so can I book the tickets for them at the bus station?
I know that minivans also offer the rides to Chengdu but they will depart only if they are full so I prefer a bus
Can anybody advise? Chinese web links are also ok
We are planning to go to China in June and July, for around 40 days and we are working out our itinerary at the moment. We would be very greatful for any extra recommendations for the trip as well as additional information on some part that are more unclear.
We divided the trip into two parts: We would like to spend the first part in Yunnan and Sichuan and the second one in Xinjiang, but are thinking in connecting the two. We are interested in trekking and remote villages, not in…
