So after bumping into a few interesting people who had been to Mongolia on my travels I decided it was worth a shot. I have booked flights to China 14th July-3rd August (Guilin-there is a direct train Guilin to Beijing and flights were a third of the price) and then intend on going up to Mongolia via train from Beijing . I basically want to head out on horse back with a tribe and see them hunt with eagles. I have contacted a budget travel agency- their website looks great but have had no response from them. There are other websites but they all seem so expensive. I have also looked into things like a visa, but the info changes so quickly and it is hard to tell how old some websites are.
My questions are:
Can I get a visa in Beijing and how many days will it take?
Can someone please PM me some good CHEAP (i am on a serious budget) travel agencies/hostels please?
How long does the train from Beijing take?
How much time for my trip will I need to set aside for my Mongolian adventure (would like to see a bit of Beijing too/need time to get visa)?
Thanks in advance for your help
