yes, you can apply for visa to USA, Australia or Canada in Embassies of the above countries in Beijing. Please apply for a multiple entry work visa at the Lanzhou public security bureau before you leave. Otherwise, you can't reenter China.

I'm planning my trip to China silk route from 30/5/10 to 8/6/10. Beginning from Urumqi-Turpan-Hami-Dunhuang-Jiayuquan-Jiuguan-Zhangye-Wuwei-Lanzhao-Tianshan-Xi'an. What would be the climate (weather condition) during that period and temperature average (in Celsius)? I could not get my vacation earliar (april-May). October, my wife would be 7 month pregnant. Definitely, we could not travel during that time. Is it still worth it to go there between this time frame(30/5/10 to 8/6/10)? Or I would rather wait till next year May or October as this will be once in a life time wonderful trip?

Hi, Mr.Andy,
The cities you mentioned are warm and dry in your time frame, the temperature varies greatly between day and night and the UV radiation is very strong.

You have planned a long itinerary. There will be many transfers and changes. So you should be well prepared for everything, especially since your wife is pregnant. If I were you, I would go there next year after the birth of my child. What do you think?
