Getting a Chinese visa in Thailand

Posted by KirstyB on 14/10/2011 at 15:42

Some up to date information on getting a visa for China in Thailand as I just dropped off my passport at the Chinese embassy in Chiang Mai.

The visa section is open Monday to Friday (except public holidays) 9am to 11.30am for applications and collections. According to the girl working there procedure and costs etc are the same as if you apply in Bangkok. A ...

Trip Report: Siem Reap to Vientiane

Posted by cheeco on 15/12/2009 at 15:19

Hi everyone, My husband and I just made the trip from Siem Reap to Vientiane through Thailand. We did this because we did not get our Laos Visas when we were in Phnom Penh, and didn't want to go back to get them. Therefore, we would not be allowed to cross the land border between Laos and Cambodia. We also did this because flying was really out of our budget. It may seem like a long post, but I tried to be as detailed as possible. It was so simple to do, I would recommend it to ...
