Visa
If you are coming to Beijing for sightseeing, you should obtain a tourist visa from the Chinese Embassy or Consulate in your home country. It is more convenient for tourists booked through Chinese travel agencies to get group visas for their visit to Beijing.
Tourist visas are usually good for two months, but can be extended for an extra month at the Foreigners Section of the public Security Bureau in each big city in China. If you want to continue traveling in China for more than three months, you will have to leave the country, get a new visa, and come back.
It is not too much trouble to go to Hong Kong and apply for a new visa. You can get a new one in two or three days. (Even though Hong Kong is now officially part of China, going there still counts as leaving the country.). For a little more money you can get a six-month visa from the China Travel Service in Hong Kong.
It is wise to carry your passport with you at all times, as you need it to register in hotels, buy plane tickets and change money. If you lose your passport, you should report immediately to your embassy, as well as tell the public Security Bureau.
