I'm an Indian citizen and planning to travel to China to visit my Chinese friend. My friend is currently in the US doing MS and will be going home to China in December for vacation. So I'm going at that time to visit him. The plan is to stay at his parent's house for my short stay (one week there).
So should I apply for a normal L tourist visa?
Also will it be problematic that I'm staying at his house rather than at a hotel?
