I probably will not have time to get a visa but have found Viator tours offer a one day tour to mainland China very long day from the reviews but it goes to the Terracotta Worriers at Xian at Shekou’s Exhibition Hall. They are able to do a tour visa, ie you are allowed in the country as part of a one day tour with the company as long as you provide your passport # hotel in Hong Kong etc ...... has anyone had any experience of this?

G'day,

though, require flight into Xian, around 2hr 10/30mins,and by the time you reach Xian is already midday,then the next day, for non stop back to HKG,is flight before noon.

Yep..guess a long day

Buddy mKiara. I think #2 was talking about going to Shenzhe Shekou Exhibition Hall to see some Terracotta Worriers *unearthed* at Xian.

Yes I suppose that is "to" China from Hong Kong. 5 miles from Hong Kong. :)

Well... it is Shenzhen. If they believe Prada, Gucci, Rolex, and Vincent van Gogh's "The Starry Night"...... they will believe Terracotta Warriors from Xian. :)

Re: #7

The 72 hour visa free rule is not applicable in Hong Kong.

yes or to say in other words only for transits, arriving and departing by plane from abroad incl HK and to a 3rd country.

For going to Shenzhen you do not even need a tour group visa, but can apply for a 5 day Shenthen Special Economic Zone visa at many of the borders to Shenzhen. More details can be fond in the forum here or ask us.

Shekou is easy to reach. Not necessarily a long day, but you can also stay over. Hotels are cheaper in Shenzhen and there opened a new Hilton in Shekou.
