Is It Worth to Visit Shanghai During Stop Over

Jessica ( Australia ) September 21,2014

My friends and I will have a stop over in Shanghai (Pu Dong Airport) arriving there at the afternoon at around 8 o'clock, and our connecting flight leaving the next day in the morning. Is it worth it taking this flight to explore Shanghai for a short amount of time?

Dear Jessica,

Thanks for contacting Top China Travel

It seems like you have never visited shanghai before. And we can arrange you to visit quite a few places here if you really want to utilize this stopover. Going to have a short visit to Shanghai downtown by your own might be a little bit tight, because maglev maglev train to downtown, but it stops at 21:40 and subway stops at 22:00. There are a lot of taxi, but taking taxi costs for nearly 400 RMB for round trip and even more.

Since there is 72 hours visa free rule in Shanghai so it is very convenient for you to have a short visiting in Shanghai. When you arrive Pudong, just leave the airport towards Arrivals. You'll need to fill in Arrival card. No visa required.

Where to Stay at Mt.Huangshan

Linn ( New Zealand ) September 21,2014

Hi, if a solo traveler wanted to maximize their time on Mt Huangshan without paying the extreme prices for a hotel on top of the mountain how could a traveler do that?
How do you get around Yellow Mountain over several days?
Do you have to pay entrance fees each time?

Dear Linn,

Thanks for contacting Top China Travel!

If you don't want to stay at a hotel on the top of the mountain, there are two choices:
1. The cheapest way might be stay at the hotel in the downtown of Huangshan city, where is 59.2 kilometers away from Mt.Huangshan Scenic Spot. But this way might be too rush and tight.
2. You can stay at the hotel at the foot of Mt.Huangshan, that is Tangkou Town. But you have to also pay the entrance fee daily plu the cable car from the foot of mountain to the top.

From what I mentioned above, I suggest you have better to stay at the top of mountain if you can not visit all attractions in Huangshan in a day, and if you live in the top of mountain, the second day you can see beautiful sunrise which is really amazing.

Advantages or Disadvantages Using Ctrip.

Andrew ( Canada ) September 21,2014

At present we are looking at hotels in China, and noted that major agencies are Ctrip and elong.
What are the advantages or disadvantages using Ctrip.

Cookie( TCT Sales Representative ) September 21,2014

Dear Andrew,

Thanks for contacting Top China Travel

1. Both are online booking agency with hotels, air tickets(including international air ticket), and train tickets in China.
Both allows online booking with credit cards. And they are similar in regard to faxing your credit card/passport details to them and surcharge for international credit card.
2. Generally Ctrip reservation have time limit, over reservation time (usually around 3 hours after you arrive in the city) will be canceled, but too late or with less room it will need credit card to guarantee. If you don’t go to the hotel in time, the guaranteed money will be charged from your credit card, therefore I suggest you have better confirm schedule and then make a decision.

How Far from the Xining Airport to Train Station

Peter ( Singapore ) September 21,2014

I'm looking at a flight from Beijing to Xining, arriving 13:20 and catching the 1505 train to Lhasa. Is this enough time to catch up the train proptly? Can tell me how far the airport and train station are away from each other.

Cookie( TCT Sales Representative ) September 21,2014

Cookie
Dear Peter,

Thanks for contacting Top China Travel

There are 31 kilometers from Xining Airpot to Xining Train Station, it takes at least 40 mints to get the train station by taxi if there is no any heavy traffic jam. Therefore it might be a little compact  for you to transfer from the Xining Airport to Train Station. And if your flight is delayed it will definitely influence you to catch up the train in time. So i would suggest you to book the flights in the morning and the train in the afternoon which has several hours' spare time so that you have enough time to catch the train even the flight is delayed for several hours.

Is Myanmar Visa on Arrival Avaible in China

Suresh ( Myanmar ) September 20,2014

Is Myanmar arrival Visa is avilable

Cookie( TCT Sales Representative ) September 21,2014

Cookie
Dear Suresh,

Thanks for contacting Top China Travel

For people who would normally require to obtain a visa in advance there are certain emergency situations which will permit them to get a visa on arrival. These will always require an invitation from an accredited Chinese organization which explains the emergency, (mostly related to business purposes which from the Chinese perspective it is important that you are admitted without delay) or you must yourself be in a real emergency situation such as a passenger in a plane or ship in mechanical difficulty.


Aliens who hold ordinary passports issued by countries which have diplomatic relations or official trade links with China as well as letter(s) or telegram(s) from authorized units in China, may, under any of the following circumstances where they must necessarily rush to China but have no time to apply for a visa, may apply to the visa-granting departments at entry ports as authorized by the Ministry of Public Security.


There is also provision for a short stay visa on arrival for some nationalities for persons who only want to visit a Special Economic Zone such as Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Xiamen or Shantou. Most travelers would find this not an option if they intend flying there.

Tour Arrangement in Guangzhou

Mr. Misra ( India ) September 20,2014

My wife and I wish to land and fly out of SHANGHAI. The dates are not yet decided. We do not wish to visit Shanghai itself or Beijing because we have visited these cities already. We are interested in going to Guangzhou and other places of natural beauty in China. As far as possible, please avoid overnight travel by trains since these are not comfortable.
Please send us your suggestions.
Also, please note that we are Indian vegetarians - we eat no meat, no fish and no eggs.

Sophie Huang( TCT Sales Representative ) September 19,2014

Dear Jenni,

Greetings from Sophie, Top China Travel!
Thank you very much for your attention.
Please kindly be advised that if we arrange private transfer with car and driver service from Yaan to Chengdu, we could only arrange car from Chengdu to Yaan, then pick you up from your hotel in Yaan, then back to Chengdu.
We can not arrange car from Yaan directly. Therefore, you need us to arrange the transfer from Yaan in the morning, our driver need to arrive Yaan one day before. In this case, it will cause extra fee for driver’s accommodation.

If you do not mind transfer back to Chengdu in the afternoon, it will be helpful to reduce the cost.

You could also rent a taxi in Yaan directly.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact with me by email to sophie@topchinatravel.com or call me at any of your convenient time by + 86 773 282 7197 or +86 138 7737 0640
