Chinese visa

To get a Chinese visa it seems you have to use a 3rd party company if you can't go in person. Anyone used one before that they'd suggest?

I guess it depends on the country you are from. I just got a visa so I can go to Beijing and it was just a matter of going to their visa centre in Sydney. However, for my Mongolian visa, I went to my travel agent and sent it away through them. Took a week, and a lot less hassle that it would have been otherwise.

I don't know if it was because I'm Canadian but to get my Chinese visa two years ago, I just had to courrier post my passport, the application (with a promisary note saying that I would not teach anyone about Western ideas), the fee, and a photo to the Chinese consulate in Ottawa.
It's the journey, not the destination.
