We will be landing in Hong Kong & from their making our way down to the Laos border (by bus / train).
We are UK citizens so don't need a visa for HK but will need one for China. Is it best to go for a transit visa or tourist one?
Also, which border crossings allow visa on arrival between China & Laos???
Thanks for your help.
^^ bump ^^
Is this crossing possible or are we going to have to figure something else out???
This member, TulsaTrot, did a RTW trip a year ago and part of their trip is from Vietnam to Hong Kong. I think he might be able to help you on this.
Strange that this question hasn't been answered.
About the visa upon arrival in Laos: yes, 30 day visa is possible to get on arrival. Main crossing from China is at Boten in Laos. This is the one used most by travellers (and as far as I remember the only one currently, although some might say there is another or so).
Oh by the way, you don't mention it, but not possible to get a visa upon arrival (at least overland, don't know about airports?) in Vietnam, just in case you might want to visit this country.
