My actual passport is being processed so I can get the work permit (I'll be teaching here). I had the PSB Interview yesterday and they gave me a temporary passport which is merely a piece of paper. My question is, can this be used to travel within China? I've heard you need a passport or temp passport to travel on trains and also to book hotel rooms. Should I bring a copy of my scanned passport page as backup? Anybody been in a similar situation? I am looking to travel during the Tomb Sweeping holiday and am hoping to get out of Shanghai and see Nanjing. Thanks!
