      China Mar 27, 2015 at 6:16 AM

      I need some help! I have applied for Business Visa for short term internship in China. For 3 months
      and my application is deficient for following work Permit. There are two types of work permit in China:

      1. One year Work Permit – To apply for this kind of work permit, the applicant must have at least two years working experience.
      2. Short Term Work Permit (3 months) – This is the new policy starting to be implemented from Jan 30, 2015. The government official at Labor Bureau said currently only models or actors/actress who perform in China for a short period of time could apply for short term work permit.

      I am a student and I neither have experience for 2 years nor I fall in actor category , in such a
      Case, what should I do as I have a job in hand in china but there is problem for visa as per new

      visa rules implemented from Jan 30, 2015. Pl guide

      Malaria and other assorted nasties..

      Yunnan Sheng Mar 4, 2015 at 7:41 AM

      Hi guys

      I'll be travelling to Yunnan in early April, going through Kunming, Dali, Lijiang and 2 days at Tiger Leaping Gorge.

      I've heard all sorts of things from the friends i'm travelling with around the innoculations they're injecting (Rabies, Typhoid, maybe Hep A/B..) and the tablets they're taking (Malaria and the russian roulette of side effects).

      I may be going out on a limb here, but is this all rather dramatic when I'm spending 2 days in a 'rural' location (Tiger Leaping Gorge) and staying at decent guesthouses/inns for the rest of the trip? Maybe it's the thought of Yunnan being exotic, or am I being far too lax in my own attitude to health, given my itinerary and April travel date?

      any thoughts welcome!

      Katie

      Travel tips

      Beijing Shi Mar 13, 2015 at 9:31 PM

      I'd really like some feed back re travelling to China in April. It appears the weather may be cooler than what I was expecting? I'm planning to take CNY currency with me but am unsure as to whether I should also take $US as well. The CNY cannot be loaded onto my Travel Debit Card but $US can. I'm travelling from Australia. If you can think of any other tips please feel free to let me know!
      Thanks ... KoalaB

    • yungang caves in datong vs longmen grottoes in luoyang

      by kyhar Online Now Mar 17, 2008 at 11:06 PM

      Hi,

      I am deciding between stopping over in datong or luoyang to see the caves on my way from beijing to xian.

      Can anyone advise which is better to see ? What are the differences ? In terms of convenience from the train stations to get to the caves, which is easier as i am short of time on my itenary.

      thanks

    • visit to Datong from Beijing

      by limlaycheng Online Now Jul 25, 2007 at 9:12 AM

      We are planning a trip to Datong from Beijing - can anyone advise if there is nice scenery on the way if we take train in day time? Would we be able to buy soft sleepers on a day train from Beijing to Datong ? We thought of spending 1 nite in Datong and then taking the CITS tour for 1 day to Yungang grottoes and hanging monastery. Then to return to Beijing subsequently same day in evening - would there be long distance buses departing Datong to Beijing or would it be better to take soft sleepers on nite train but there would be problem what to do for whole nite in Datong while awaiting for train which leaves about 2300 hrs or so for Beijing. Planning to go Datong on Wed 26 Sept and returning Beijing on 27 Sept - travelling with 2 elderly folk in 70s. Any advice much appreciated

    • Datong -- is one day enough?

      by heymikey Online Now Mar 26, 2007 at 11:08 PM

      I'm thinking of arriving in Datong early morning from Beijing and leaving later that night to Xi'an. I don't really intend sticking around town for more than a day and I only plan to see the cave and the hanging monastery. I just have some questions about the logistics:
      (1) Can I book a cheap tour through CITS once I arrive in Datong? If so, how much?
      (2) Are there any storage lockers in the train station?
      (3) Are there any shower facilities at the train station?
      (4) I will be arriving in Datong on May 7, which is during the Golden Week. Will it be hard for me to book a sleeper ticket from Datong to Xi'an on this date?

    • Train tickets back to Beijing

      by tanby Online Now Jan 26, 2007 at 7:33 PM

      I have checked with a few online travel companies in Beijing, only able to get Beijing-Datong train tickets.

      How can I arrange for someone or travel agent in Datong to help get Datong - Beijing overnight sleepers?

      Intend to visit Datong's Yungang Buddhist Caves and Hanging Monastary only.

      Has any VTers gone with CITS day tour to these 2 places? How to book?

      Thanks.

      Boarding the Trans Siberian in Datong

      by mikegr Online Now Jun 12, 2004 at 7:47 PM

      I'm intending to travel from China to Western Russia on the Trans Siberian. I was wondering if it is possible to board the train at Datong, rather than in Beijing (I've been to Beijing before and it will add a long distance to my travel plans if I have to go back there). I'm not planning todothe journey in one go - the first leg would be as far as Ulaan Baatar. Hope you can help me out with this - I'd appreciate any information. Thanks - Mike
