China and Hong Kong offer so many hostels so I am sure that you will not have trouble finding the hostel. But if it is your first time in China, you should book a room a few days in advance because it's easier for you to visit a strange city for the first time if you have some plan of where to go.

From my experience travelling in China. I usually go to local agency to buy train tickets and they will sort everything out for you. I bought tickets from Beijing to Shanghai before so I can speak from my experience. I got the tickets before I travelled 2-3 days because I speak little Chinese and I find myself stranded trying to explain what I want at the ...

It's extremely unclear what you are asking. I can read this as two possibilities. 1. You have a Chinese passport that is expiring on 5 July and you hold a UK residence visa In this case you can most certainly fly to China, however you will need to obtain a new passport before returning to the UK. I believe UK requires a minimum of 6 months validity on ...

The area next to Hong Kong-China Boundary in Hong Kong is Frontier Closed Area. Only permitted people can access it. If you want to cross the boundary, the cheapest way is Huangbus (皇巴士) from Huanggang Port to San Tin Public Transport Interchange. It costs $9 HKD, paid by cash or Octopus card. Dont expect to hitchhike in GuangDong. Each year many drivers ...

Hong Kong consists of a number of islands, and also a sizeable chunk of mainland, called the New Territories. The New Territories are the larger part of Hong Kong, but also the least densely populated, least interesting and least visited. Kowloon is a more populated and residential area, also part of the mainland, surrounded by the New Territories. Shenzhen ...

Cathay/Dragon air free baggage allowance is 20KG for Economic class, but my experience 2 weeks ago in Heathrow tells you can put not more than around 24KG. Cathay/Dragon extra bag charge is based on weight. It charges US$20 per KG from China(ZONE1) to Delhi(ZONE2), which means the extra bag costs you $460, around half of your ticket price

You will not have problems to find ATMs in China, the only problem is if your bank card can be used inside ATMs of a specific chinese bank (like Merchants Bank, ICBC, Bank of China). For example I can use my debit card only at ICBC and Bank of China ATMs, it's not accepted in other banks (also if they display the logo of my debit card)

I am sure such question can not be answered with any reasonable detailed place. first of all if such place would be known to a broad audience, most probably it would be known to law enforcement and would be closed (like asking on the forum for a suggestion where to find gold in Alaska. It is useless because if people knew where to find it, all of it would ...

I did this once - a few years ago. I arrived in Beijing on Emirates Airways and was transferring to a domestic flight on China Airlines. The three legs (London to Dubai to Beijing to Dalian) were on the same ticket/reservation. If I remember correctly, I did have to go through the passport and visa checks in Beijing airport. I also had to get and recheck ...

I wanted to report back that I attended the visa processing centre last week to submit my application. As "proof of legal status" I brought my Meldebestätigung für die Anmeldung to show I live here and my latest Entgeltnachweis to show that I'm employed here. The visa staff had no idea what these were and, after I explained things, they seemed mildly ...

It turns out two of the addresses refer to the same place! The site must have been redeveloped recently with new, internal roads. The consulate is not located in a park as it seems from Google Maps. I believe the area is a special consular zone. It seems to only contain a Lao consulate and a Myanmar consulate so far. There's also an official Chinese office ...

You should check the conditions of your bank account agreement with ANZ. Every bank offers different packages, and the withdrawal conditions are defined inside the package. The only variable to consider is the exchange rate applied by foreign bank, but for my experience all the banks apply the same exchange rate (ruled by Bank of China).

I'm a Chinese student who just came back to China from US a month ago. As most VPN protocols have their own characteristics, GFW is able to detect VPN connections and reset/block VPN connections. Although VPNs can be blocked, if you use your own server and don't have a very heavy traffic, you might still be able to use it. One of the most popular methods ...

As SpaceDog commented, even in the UK they are not universally recognised. The only consistently accepted British notes worldwide are from the Bank of England. So either keep them for your next visit, or do a deal with a friend who is going to visit. This is actually what I do with most notes that aren't Euros or US Dollars, as outside the US and Europe I ...

To my knowledge, no major bank in China takes Scottish Pounds. However, there are some private companies' posts online saying that they would exchange Scottish Pounds for CNY. For example, this one: http://www.xici.net/d199868781.htm (If you could read Chinese). Even if such company is reliable, I don't think they would offer a reasonable rate for you. So ...
