    • New Bullet Train

      Pingyao 1 hours ago

      I'm having trouble finding information about two aspects of the new bullet train between Xi'an - Pingyao and Pingyao - Beijing.
      1. The link below says that it is now operational as of July 1. Can someone verify this? I thought I had read somewhere that its opening might be delayed until September...
      chinahighlights.com/news/aro...

      2. Travel China Guide's online train ticket booking service shows that this new route is now available. But, this site shows the station as "Pingyao Ancient Town" instead of just "Pingyao". Does anyone know where this new station is?

      Thanks!

      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!

      Going to sleep on mountain to see Sunrise...and want to make plans to get back to Beijing.

      Huashan Jun 20, 2014 at 4:14 PM

      My son is going to climb the mountain and wants to see the Sunrise. 1. Can he make a reservation at a hotel on the mountain? I cannot find a way...Or must he just go there and hoe for the best? And 2. On the day after, once he has seen the sunrise, he wants to come back down to the train station where the fast G trains are going back to Beijing. How long will it take him to get down and to the train station, and what is the best way to do that? G672 leaves at 9:48 am, and G660 leaves at 11:35 - can he make either of those?

    • Ferry from Shanghai to Osaka (Shanghai Ferry Company) and Japanese Rail Pass

      China Jul 2, 2014 at 7:43 PM

      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. Limited and can let me know if this is something they provide?

      I want to do independent travel to Yunnan and Guizhou. My interests are minority culture and photography.

      However, I have not done independent travel in that part of China before and don't know how to tackle the logistics. I have heard that getting around in that part of China is not easy.

      I have three weeks and want to cover Kunming, Dali, Lijiang, Tiger Leaping Gorge, Jianshui, and Yueyang Rice Terraces in Yunnan before heading to Huanguoshu Falls, Zhijin Caves, and the Miao and Dong villages aroind Kaili in Guizhou.

      If anyone has advice, please let me know.

      I know this is a vague question, but…I would like to do some hiking in China, from a few days up to about a week. Ideally, I would like to experience some local guest houses and have a local guide. Can anyone recommend a region that they have hiked in? Recently I hiked in Ladakh and it was one of the best experiences of my life. But China is so huge…I'd welcome hearing people's suggestions and experiences to help me narrow it down!!

Is this something we would do on our own from Kashgar using local transport or would we hire a guide. What about Shipton's Arch is this something worth a visit, also. Any other suggestions.

      do local people understand what you mean ,where you want to go ?
      you can say ,instead of calling it in english ,call it (yingi bazaar) ,that is much better for tourists .
      and another thing , tourists don,t know where to stay while they are in kashgar city , good answer is ,Chinibag Mihmanhanisi (chinibag hotel) or Saman Mihmanhanisi (seman Hotel) ,there are bunch of hotels in kashgar but little expensive .
