Border Crossing China to Vietnam

Hanoi Vietnam

I thought China was a jungle, but apparently that was nothing compared to Hanoi! There is a train leaving Beijing twice weekly heading for Hanoi. While spending a week in Yangshou, I had booked the ticket through china's official tourist buro (CITS), getting on the train in Guilin. My visa for China was tipping it's 30th (and final) day of me leagally staying in the country, and we would arrive at the Vietnamese border sometime past midnight - officially making me outwear my welcome by say... 15 minutes?

Trainride from Shanghai to Kunming China

I was in Shanghai wondering what to do next. I knew I needed a visa for Vietnam and my original plan was to pick one up in Hong Kong. As you know, Hong Kong was given back to the Chinese a few years back and is no longer a British protectorate. Can you travel into Hong Kong from China? No problem!

Beijing China, Kung Fu show at Red Theatre

Beijing is enormous. And there is so much to do there, I don't know where to start. The first night we went to a Kung Fu Show in the Red Theatre. The taxi driver got directions in chinese, nodded and smiled and we were on our way - my companinons from Belgia and myself - speeding trough the streets of Beijing - forty five minutes to go. To make up for the lack of language skills - all taxis come equipped with taximeter (the only thing in China with a fixed price?) and an electronic voicebox which welcomes you in digital english and wishes you a nice trip. The taxi looks nice and new, so no problems here.

Train from Mongolia to China

The train left Ulan Bataar railway station early in the morning. 8 o'clock is concidered early when you don't go to work anymore :) The air was cool, chilly enough to call for a sweater, and the fist thing getting on the train was mixing myself a nice cup of instant nescafe. I just love the smell of coffee in the morning.

  • He insisted.... ;-)

    Check out the website of my brother, Ib Knutsen! He is currently working at a UN office in Nairobi, Kenya - and he is a bit more advanced as a webmaster than I am. You will find photos, videos, essays and articles and loads of tips and tricks.

    One of his latest projects was the making of a rap video for Nairobi rappers - definetly worth checking out!
