      Visa to Xining?

      by ritaz Online Now Jan 21, 2014 at 1:38 PM

      Hi, please help me with the visa preparation: if I do apply for Chinese visa (doing Beijing - Xining - Xian), do I need the separate Tibet visa to visit Xining? Not going to Lhasa, only Xining and then back to inland, to Xian.
      Thanks in advance!

    • what to do for a day layover in Xining?

      by ariellejesse Online Now Mar 18, 2010 at 1:32 PM

      We plan to arrive by train at 8am and fly out at 6pm. Is there luggage storage at the railway station? Would it be better to get a day room at a hotel near the station ( suggestions ) and then explore the downtown area on foot. Are there opportunities to hire English speaking taxis for a short drive? Need some ideas!! Thanks

      Is Xining worth visiting, while taking the train to Tibet?

      by alwloch Online Now Sep 25, 2007 at 12:49 PM

      I had thought of stopping off a Xian; and then Xining (buying tickets separately for these 2 legs of the trip up to Lhasa). But I hear that Xining may just be a smaller version of what is already up in Tibet... or is Xining worth a visit?
