I realized I had a bad headline, so am asking this ? again, a different way. My husband are leaving for our trip in 2 weeks. We are flying round trip from San Francisco to Hanoi. We just got our Visa for Vietnam and are getting our visas for China now.
We plan on arriving in Hanoi and staying there for 10 days, then taking a bus to Nanning. Today, we took our docs to a visa expediter service (mychinavisa), and the worker there told us she thinks our applications will be rejected bc our flight info is into Vietnam and not China. She said that we have to have a receipt of purchasing the bus ticket from Hanoi to Nanning before the Chinese Embassy will approve our Visa.
I researched online, and it seems many people go by bus from Hanoi to China and say you have to have a Chinese visa b4 you can buy the bus ticket. If you have any experience or advice here, we would be most grateful.
