London, United Kingdom
Been many,many times. If you are just thinking of a day trip then around 2 hours North of Beijing you can visit the "tourist" part BADALING. They are many other parts available but some places it's crumbling and not safe. about 10 years ago
You can now obtain visa on arrival if arriving at Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh airports only. The application can be processed "on-line" and then they send you an official letter that you need to carry to show the airlines. On arrival in Ho Chi Minh or Hanoi produce this letter with completed application form 2 photographs and US$25. If you need any help I can give you names of a couple of agents who can help. It is much easier than processing through your local embassy and cheaper! about 10 years ago
