I am traveling from Bangkok to San Francisco on Chinese Southern Airlines, departing February 18th.
As some of you know, Chinese New Years is celebrated on February 19th! The ticket I'm going to buy has a layover for 23 hours in Guangzhou. However, I then must fly to another smaller Chinese city (Wuhan - 2 hour flight) with an additional 2 hour layover there before finally flying directly to San Francisco.
Since my total time in China is 27 hours would I qualify for a Direct Visa? Of course if I left the airport in Guengzhou I would not be visiting the country properly for more than 23 hours, but does the Chinese immigration usually count transit time (other connecting flights/layovers) when deciding whether to grant visitors a direct visa?
I have to buy the ticket within the next day before prices surge again, so absolutely any sound advice would be greatly appreciated! (Also is Guengzhou a good place to visit for New Years or is it a madhouse?) Thank you!
