Any chance we can still buy ferry tickets to enable us to check in to our already booked hotel in Gulangyu?
We are factoring in some delay at customs or flight delays. Thus may not be able to take the ferry from Dongdu Port.
For this case do I need to apply transit visa before check in or not? I hold Thailand passport.
I'm planning on buying train tickets from Xiamen to Shanghai and Shanghai to Hong Kong.
I understand that tickets are not available in China until 2-3 months before departure. However, it seems that I can book on your website 6 months in advance.
Does travelchinaguide guarantee that the tickets will be booked once they are available?
