If you need to go yourself, just drive. Look at a map and see if there is anything touristy on the way and make an event of it. 

 

Remember there is some mandatory paperwork in transferring the vehicle registration, unless you want to drive back to Kunming each year to get the insurance stickers and such.

Best option is to sell the car and buy another in Beijing. Bringing it from Kunming just isn't worth the headaches and effort. Dealing with Beijing bureaucrats will drive you nuts.

Calculate the distance you will drive in KM's and it will equate to about 1 rmb per kilometer. It will actually be a bit less but its better to plan for it. Plus about another 1500 for gas as a high estimate ( also depends on your car ).  

 

How old is your car? Does it need to be inspected every 2 years??  You will not be able to do this in  Beijing. You will need to take the car back.  Insurance can be done without the car though, if you have someone who can help you handle it in Kunming. 

 

Also, if you decide later, i beleive you will still need to take the car back to kunming and  un-register it, then get temp insurance, take it back to beijing and register it there.  

 

If your not sure of how often you plan to go back, perhaps registering it in beijing the first time is best. Start looking into whether you can get beijing plates or not. Or even in a city close by.

I want to use the car in Beijing for about 5 months and take it back to Kunming. I am just puzzled with the paper work troubles which is worth considering before embarking on this adventure. The car was purchased newly in 2011

I would have loved to change the car papers to Beijing but I dont have the Beijing permission to buy or use a car in Beijing. The car's mileage is about 40,000kmh.

 

Thanks guys for the useful ideas. More would be appreciated

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
