    What to expect in Guizhou?

    Guizhou is home to 48 China's ethnic groups, second only to Yunnan, each of which has developed their own unique customs and cultures. Among them, Miao and Dong minorities are the two biggest groups in Qiandongnan Autonomous Prefecture. Start your journey from Kaili and onward, you will see villages of different minorities one after another and marvel at the amazing off-the-beaten-track natural sceneries.

    Besides, many traditional festivals are celebrated among different ethnic groups each year, which attract a lot of travelers from far away. When a festival is held, they dress up, prepare a lot of festival food and celebrate it with rich activities, such as singing, dancing, trading and all kinds of competitions. It will be quite interesting if you take our private guided tours to Guizhou and try on their traditional dress and join them like a local.

    Actually, this is not a transit in the sense that is defined in Chinese visa free transit rules, but a travel from one country to China, i.e. to Tongren via Shanghai. Having that in mind, you are not eligible for 24 hours visa free transit in the sense that is defined in Chinese visa free transit rules. Anyway, assuming that you are a Singaporean citizen, you have right to enter and stay in China visa free for 15 days, so you will be absolutely free to exit the airport and return back to continue your journey to Tongren. In case that you are a citizen of a country that cannot enter China visa free, then you need a pre-arranged Chinese visa.
