I will be in Hong Kong and Macau in June I was thinking about visiting Guangzhou for a day trip. I would like to visit Zhuhai as well and I know you can get a Visa at Gonbei for three days, which is more than enough, but I don't know if it's possible to go to Guangzhou on that visa.
I was thinking about taking a bus or the train. If that is not possible, any ideas? Is there a way to get a 72-hour free visa for Guangzhou similar to Shanghai?
Obviously, the easiest thing would be getting a regular Chinese visa at a consulate, but I'm trying to avoid that. It is inconvenient for me to go twice to the consulate (no more same-day pick-up and I don't trust the postal service). Also, I recently got a 2-entry Chinese visa: I'm visiting Beijing and North Korea in April and I mentioned I was intending to visit Guangzhou in June (no booked tickets yet, though). Still I get just two entries to go to Beijing, North Korea, and back to Beijing. I guess they thought: if you want to visit in June, come back and get a new visa...
So I'm not going through that hassle. If there's an easy way to visit Guangzhou I will do it, otherwise, I will cross to Zhuhai, see the fishing lady statue, eat some noddles, and leave.
