dummies guide to China entry
I know this topic has been covered in some detail before, but I have to admit I am still pretty confused. We are in the final stages of planning a RTW trip leaving in March next year, everything is going fine except the getting into China bit. As I understand it to get into China without a vehicle, just a tourist visa will suffice, however, with a vehicle we apparently need more than just the tourist visa. What exactly is this other documentation that we need? and how on earth do we get it?
We actually went down to the Chinese embassy to sort this out and they told us that we had to contact a travel company in this country who would 'sort it' for us. I have spoken to a number of companies and nobody seems to know how to get into China with a vehicle.
Please, please can somebody help?????
Oh yea just another quick one, we are planning to go in through Nepal into Tibet and down to Laos, I heard that this route is open, Does anyone know if that’s true, or do we have to go in from somewhere else?
Thanks for your time
