comment Getting from Tajikistan to China
At least two of the three border crossing between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are usually open. But you should check before going there, they are a long way from everything. I met a cyclist from Hong Kong who crossed the Qolma pass in July 2014, but for now that only seems to work if you have a passport from "greater" China.

comment Macau/Hong Kong: Visa for going back and forth
I arrived in HK from Macau last week and ask the border official about this. "what prevents me from going back and forth between HK and Macau to get new 90 days every time". He said "nothing". I'm pretty sure there is no problem if the duration of your combined stays is less than 90 days.

comment Does having visited top countries increases the value of least useful passport?
It sometimes makes it easier or more likely to get a new visa if you already have a previous visa for the same country in the same passport. Other countries may care less about it

comment What popular western web services don't work in mainland China?
I don't see a difference between the Wifi in hostels and hotels. Yes, most PCs still run XP with IE6

comment What popular western web services don't work in mainland China?
I am able to use my company's VPN to get into my own server in Europe. All Microsoft services seem to work okay, anything Google doesn't. That includes sites using embedded google maps and using jQuery hosted on Google's CDN
