Forums > Travel Yunnan > How to calculate the end date for my tourist visa?

Thank you for the clarification. I reserved my flight for July 30, which is day 60. My guess is that they determine the exit date by the flight departure date, not by the date the passenger goes through the checkpoint in the airport.

It's nice that some countries, such as Japan, show the required exit date on the passport stamp. This makes it more clear, and helps travelers avoid being accidentally off by 1. I'm glad that even though my stamp for China doesn't have a similar indication, I now know the conditions of my Chinese tourist visa.

How do I calculate the end date for my tourist visa? My tourist visa in China is valid for multiple entries, and 60 days after entry. I entered China on June 1. What's the last day of my visa on this entry?

Also, what do they consider to be the date I exit? Is it the date I pass through the checkpoint in the airport, or the date that my flight leaves? I've especially wondered that for flights that depart China slightly after midnight, and for passengers scheduled on those flights who pass through the checkpoint slightly before midnight.

What is the best time of year to visit Bingzhongluo and Dulongjiang? Also, what are some good mountain destinations to visit in Yunnan in May? If the Pi River Valley gets good weather in May, then maybe I can go there instead and skip Nujiang Prefecture.

OK, I would like to get away from pollution, so visiting the mining town of Lanping might not be a good idea. Maybe instead, I'll go to the Pi River Valley and the Nujiang Valley. I'm especially interested in visiting Bingzhongluo and Dulongjiang.

Good question. Lanping caught my attention because it isn't in the Lonely Planet guidebook. So, I would guess that it's one of the more obscure towns in Nujiang Prefecture (although correct me if I'm wrong). I want to spend a week in Lanping County and go hiking in the mountains. Afterward, I want to go to Fugong for a week and do some more hiking.

Since Lanping is grim, which towns in Nujiang Prefecture (or elsewhere in northwestern Yunnan) would you recommend visiting instead?

So the Chinese institute a policy that violates civil rights and "unduly expands the power of the state" just as much as an alcohol ban (the Great Firewall), and that's apparently OK. I've also heard that some employers in China make hiring decisions based on the color of someone's skin (especially when hiring ESL teachers), and the government seems to turn a blind eye to it. The government also openly allows, if not requires, certain businesses (i.e. mobile phone companies and Internet cafes) to discriminate based on national origin. Those businesses often require a Chinese ID card to buy a SIM card or use the Internet on their public computers. The public is right to criticize the alcohol ban, but the Chinese don't care about other civil rights infringements.
