Re: Government-issued invitation letter required for Chinese Visa?

Hi there,

The Letter of Invitation (LOI) has to be issued by a Chinese Tourist Agency that is accredited by the Chinese Government.

It contains dates, hotel names, cities to be visited and - most important a red stamp.

Hope that helps

Re: Driving through Uzbekistan - time limit?

End of the main road, sign, to the right. From Moynaq you can go to Beyneu. This will be a very long trip o...

Re: How viable/worth it is it to drive in the Stans in late autumn/early winter?

As EU citizen you can easily get a double entry russian business visa. Much more convenient compared to getting to tourist visa.

A bit more paperwork, that's all

Did it twice, no issue at all

Have a great trip!

Re: China self drive

This will be ridiculously expensive.... Expect few hundred € / day.

I don't know an agency, maybe you should contact
[url]tibetmoto.de[/url]

They do quite a lot of tours in China.
I CANNOT recommend them, but maybe they can giv you a quote or name some other agencies.

Good luck
