      tourist visas from Hong KOng

      China Jul 8, 2014 at 8:00 PM

      the latest changes to visa situations its said that people are supposed to return home to their countries if HK is not their home country to apply for tourist visas but that HK is still not enforcing this so HK is usually still the first place that comes out of peoples mouths when doing this - but wanting to ask is there anyone here who has obtained a tourist visa from HK recently and how long were they given?
      if they applied for 3 months did they get 3 months or only 2 or 1??!!
      Also were you able to do it as overnight express or had to wait a few days?

      thanks for any helpful info!

      So me and my friend are planning a trip to Japan from Shanghai via boat (how adventurous of us!) Like many foreigners visiting Japan, we've heard about the Japanese Rail Pass and are very interested, I've been doing some reading online and I read that in order to get your ticket exchanged whilst in Japan, you need proof of your entry date. This is mandatory on flights, but I'm worried that the boat company won't stamp our passports with our arrival date. Has anyone used the Shanghai Ferry Co.

      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.

      Bus Travel in China--Hangzhou to Huangshan (September)

      by SandiM Online Now May 16, 2011 at 6:07 PM

      How does bus travel 'work' in China between Hangzhou and Huangshan (Tangkou)? If we buy a roundtrip ticket to Tangkou from Hangzhou (is there enough time to buy it the night before or even day of?), do we get some kind of guarantee that we will definitely get on that bus going to and coming from? I don't want to get down to the bottom of Huangshan after our 2 day exploration only to find the bus is sold out to get back to Hangzhou (anybody got the schedule for Tangkou-Hangzhou as well as Tangkou-Tunxi-Hangzhou? I heard this route might be faster than the direct from Tangkou but it depends on when these buses leave Tangkou. We might opt for sitting for 5 hours over going 1 hr, waiting 2 hrs, then sitting for another 4hrs etc). Please and thanks!

      West Lake Huangzhou & photography

      by SandiM Online Now Feb 7, 2011 at 7:29 PM

      We are arriving at SHA airport around 230pm from Canada and hope to grab one of those express buses outside the airport to go directly to Hangzhou Tourist hub on Huanglong Rd. Got the schedules already, so that's done. Trying to select a hotel around West Lake in Hangzhou but need to know this: which section of the lake is the most photogenic? West Lake is huge and we want to be up early in the morning to shoot some photos of the lake & pagodas and statuary (if any). So, which approach is best? that way i can select a hotel nearby to start from (oh and we also need to get to the West bus Station on Zijingang Rd around lunch to grab an express bus to Huangshan Mtn so that gives you an idea where we want to be around. The hotel choice is not as important as the west lake approach part). thanks!

      Hi - we are 2 first time visitors to Shanghai on business trip but arriving earlier for some sightseeing. Will be flying into Shanghai from Singapore on 9th April (Fri) arriving around 1+pm and plan to take the fast train (dongche) to Hangzhou. So we are not able to ask hotel concierge to buy for us.

      We read mixed reviews about purchase of train ticket - from easily to not easily available during weekend. Am now worried and also concern cause we speak very limited mandarin.

      How long does it take to get from Pudong Airport to Shanghai Railway station if we landed at around 1pm? What is the fastest/best mode? What is the approx cost?

      How do we purchase 2 tickets for Shanghai to Hangzhou (9/4 Fri after 1pm)?
      Can we purchase returns ticket (11/4 Sun morning) at the same time or only available at Hangzhou? I will be staying at Ramada in Hangzhou. Not sure if I can get hold of the hotel to help purchase the ticket before we arrive.

      Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you.
