Chinese Visa In Hand, Next A China Plan

Jump to last reply

With a planned trip to Beijing in the near future, I decide with some reluctance to let my passport go for a Fed-ex ride to a Chinese visa service in Texas.

I am pleasantly surprised that my passport has returned to me 8 days later with a Chinese visa that is good for one year with multiple entries. The fees paid for this service and the company I used made this a hassle free, pleasant experience.

My total cost, about $200. $140 (Consular Fee – 3 To 4 Working Days), plus only a $25 service fee and about $30 for Express Shipping.

YWPW Visa service was great in providing email updates of the process and their website is very helpful for filling out the visa application even if you do not use their services.

Now with what I consider the difficult part over, it time to start doing some trip planning. The Great Wall and all the regular tourist sites are on the list. However, I would welcome your ideas and suggestions for more adventurous and unique things to see or do in all parts of China.

My request is intentionally left wide open as I now have a year and multiple chances to explore China. Share your unique experiences and I'll worry about the technical details of putting them into my “I have a year to explore China plan”.
