    • Do I have a problem??

      Beijing Jul 16, 2014 at 7:04 AM

      DO I HAVE A VISA PROBLEM

      I am visiting China later this year from Aug 28 to Feb 3 and have already booked my flights. Total stay in China for158 days on a ‘L’ visa as I’m touring.
      I’ve got a visa for 60 days double entry (total 120 days), and I’ve been told I can get an extension for a further 30 days at a police station. This makes 150 days in total. Here is the question :- Can I obtain a further extension for the remaining 8 days. The Chinese embassy in Manchester says I will only find out when I'm in China. But I would like to know now so I can adjust my return flight date.

      Buying fast G train ticket right before departure (Beijing South to Shanghai)?

      Beijing Apr 3, 2014 at 5:59 AM

      I will land in BJ early afternoon (from USA), but I do not want to pre-purchase a ticket (in case of miss it due to traffic etc.). Can I buy a ticket at the Beijing South train station for the immediate next departure train to Shanghai (I am an American)?

      Or do I really have to pre-purchase online? Any suggestion on which website to buy (ctrip.com???). If I miss the train I have the ticket for, would it be too much trouble having to have the ticket (for the missed train) refund first, then but another one?

      I am leaving tomorrow, any quick advice would be highly appreciated! Thanks!

      Tour Guide Inquiry

      Beijing Nov 24, 2013 at 10:12 PM

      Dear VTers, I recently recommended Alvin of Beijing to be the tour guide of my best friend who will be traveling to Beijing with ther family some time December. Unfortunately, due to the terror attack in Tiananmen last October, Alvin was critically hurt and cannot assist my friend. I am asking my fellow VTers for 2 things:
      1. For those who believe in prayers, pls pray for Alvin's speedy recovery. He broke ribs and pelvis. He cannot breathe well and is currently confined at Beijing Orthopedic Hospital. Will not post pictures here so as not to offend others who may find his hurt pictures a bit delicate to look at.
      2. Need your recommendation for another reliable tour guide who can provide van+driver only. My friend does not need tour packages at this point, just a van+driver. Please help. Please send contact details, too.

      Thanks in advance.

    • Educational trip Beijing

      Beijing Nov 13, 2013 at 1:46 PM

      For university I am allowed to go on a short trip to Beijing from the 6th to the 14th of December. Are there any interesting educational experiences I could have? I am open to anything realy.

      There is one limit though. I am only allowed to go in order to visit a one-time opportunity. For example a museum is not allowed, but a speech is.

      It could be about anything. IT would be preferable, but social issues or science would be great too.

      Does anybody know whether there is an upcoming event I should visit? I would greatly appreciate your help!
