    Just had a look at airfares and they are around $1200-$1400 AUD return to Guanghouz from SYD or MEL on SouthernChina. ( who are ok ).


    Visas for Australian Passport holders are $AUD60 for a single entry visa. ( mandatory ).

    You will find that if its in feb that you should be able to get very cheap airfares to Hong Kong and then catch the train across. I paid $800 with Qantas for a return ticket back in January for a flight in March, so there can be some great prices if you shop around at the right time.

    We will probably start the "Mini" from a location in China or Hong Kong and let folks organise their own air-travel in/out. With people coming from various directions it gets really too hard to organise and theres little or nothing to be gained. I'll work on a bit of an itinery shortly.

    We will be in Guanghouz and Shenzhen, about 1500km south of Shanghei. theres lots of connecting flights. Flying in and out of Hong Kong is a sensible and easy enough option.
