Don’t be surprised by the long haul (Wade K)
The worst visa run I ever went on was when I worked as an outdoor guide. The company had not paid us in a couple months, so I basically had no money. I had to go from Sanya in Hainan Province to Hong Kong to get a new visa and then up to Nanjing in Jiangsu Province, which is 1,792 kilometers away, to do a winter camp so I could get some money. I took a 20-hour longdistance bus to Hong Kong. Everyone else on th bus got off in Shenzhen in Guangdong Province so the bus driver took an hour-long break with me locked in the bus. That night I slept outside in the cold since I had no money and passport.
Afterwards, I got my passport back and went over to Guangzhou to try y and get a train up to Nanjing. The train was for the next day, so I spent the night in an Internet cafe.cafe The next day, I missed my train because I didn’t realize that I was at the east train station and not the main train station. I got my 85 percent refund and took a 20-hour train ride to Shanghai with no seat. Finally, I made it to Shanghai and took the fast train to Nanjing and immediately took a shower and a nap.
