      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

      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!

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.

    • tourist information? maps? walking tours?

      by MonikaHaase Online Now Nov 9, 2014 at 7:16 AM

      Hi, I´ve been in Shenyang for a week (will be coming for short stays occasionally in the future) and have not been able to find a tourist information office. The two "offices" I found (Zhaoling tomb, Imperial Palace) did neither have english-speaking personnel nor apparently anything in the way of maps/brochures/advertisements or other information.
      I tried finding a bookstore not far from the Railway Station reportedly having a large selection of english books (hoping for a map of Shenyang) and again was out of luck (they may have moved?).
      I have checked the internet.
      I´m running out of ideas: How can I find a decent map of Shenyang? Is there any tour-operator doing guided tours of Shenyang or attractions in the surrounding area.
      Any help appreciated!

    • A few questions from an American who just moved here..

      by KTMW Online Now Aug 26, 2006 at 7:48 PM

      1. Does Shenyang have some type of subway or railway system for getting around the city? If not, is it supposed to get one sometime in the future? When, if so?

      2. Is there anywhere on the north side of the city to buy "foreign" type groceries like block cheese (as opposed to the fake slice cheese found in all the grocery stores) or tortilla shells or anything like that?

      3. Is there anywhere in Shenyang to find Mexican food either in a restaurant or grocery store?

      Please answer even if you can only answer one of the questions! I appreciate any help!
