Ian, if you will stay in your gf's apartment and you can get an invitation letter from her, then you can use your gf's address to get tourist visa.

Rhonda, if you don't exit from China during the 9 days, then you just need a single entry China visa.

Well, apart from the application form and invitation letter, you need to submit your passport, which should be valid for at least six months, a recently-taken passport style photo, and a copy of your friend's ID card or residence permit of China.

There are two ways to prepare your application form. You may complete an Online Application Form (where a Visa Centre provides such service), print it out and sign it; or, you can download the application form from this website and fill it out manually and sign it.

It depends on which type of visa you apply for. If you apply for a tourist visa, you need to submit the hotel booking or invitation letter.
