      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!

    • 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?

      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.

      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?

      Transport Tianjin to Beijing

      Tianjin Dec 20, 2013 at 3:27 PM

      I am looking at a cruise which includes a 3 night stop at Tianjin port. My problem is we visited Beijing in 2011 for 5 days and took tour to the major attractions.

      We do not want to take the tours offered by the cruise as they cover what we have already seen. We are confident in sightseeing Beijing by ourselves.

      Some questions:
      Is the rail station close to the cruise port?
      How many connecting trains to reach Beijing central district?
      How long would it take by train and is the service regular?
      What distance (km) and is it possible by taxi, or traffic too bad? Approx cost?

      Is there much to see in Tianjin. 2 full days in port might be a waste and it may be best to select another cruise.

      Appreciate all advice

      How much time to spend in Tianjin?

      I have bought a tour for 5D4N in Beijing. But I have booked my flight ticket to arrive in Tianjin 2 days earlier than Day 1 of tour and also my departure flight is a day after the last day of the tour itinerary. This means I have at least two and a half extra days on my own.

      How much time should I spend in Tianjin? I arrive in Tianjin at about 3 pm and have two days before joining the tour.

      Tianjin Shi Sep 11, 2011 at 7:59 AM

      Hi all, I have a few questions:

      1. Will it be unwise to cycle in Tianjin? I have heard that the traffic in China is bad, and cars will not give way to cyclists or pedestrians, so I was strongly advised against cycling in Beijing. Yet I am still quite keen in exploring Tianjin by bicycle. Will it be equally unsafe?

      2. For places like the Drum Tower and Wudadao, will they be walking or cycling distance from the Tianjin Train Station?

      3. After the day tour in Tianjin, I would be returning to my hotel in Beijing. How safe is Tianjin and Beijing at night in general? What is the appropriate time to be back in our hotel at night?

      We will arrive at the cruise port in Xingang in October 2009 and would like to go to the Tianjin Railway Station to take the bullet train to Beijing. I need information on how to get to the bullet train from Xingang cruise port. Can someone tell me the approximate cost of a taxi from Xingang port to the railway station? Or is there a light rail train between Xingang and Tianjin? Or would it be better to take the bullet train to Beijing from Tanggu instead of Tianjin? If so, what would a taxi cost to the Tanggu station?

      We have been to China one before and love the country but it is sometimes hard to find information details from so far away.

      But everything is in chinese (i know, it is normal, but it is hard as well...) so i cant find out what are the places i can travel during the night arriving there in the morning, then stay two nights and come back on Monday night. Where to go? whre to find the train timetables?

      And i have another question, someone told me that it isnt possible to buy a return ticket in China... that you have to buy one way and then get the other one, but then i may not be able to come back on Monday night and i have to work on tuesday afternoon!!!! Is there any way to buy a return train ticket? not in the station but i know you can go to some tourist agencies and they get you the ticket... can you ask them for a return ticket or do you have to pray to get the return ticket when you arrive to your destination?
