It touches a few stans. Interestingly at the point where the west of China borders Kazakhstan, there is a four hour time difference. All of china runs at the same time as Beijing.

That is fascinating when you think about it. I allready knew about the one time zone, but never really thought about what it would be like crossing a border.

There's only a 2 hour time difference between China and Kazahstan. You're thinking of the Afghanistan border where there's a 3 and a half hour gap.

71% currently, but it is the least guessed one. Maybe because as some pointed out previously normal type ins arent accepted? I haven't tried out what works or not though. It could be that currently it is standard type ins again.

It's that little piece of Afghanistan that sticks out at the top and stretches eastward. That part borders China. it's actually part of the ancient Silk Road, though currently the main pass is closed on the Chinese side.

JetPunk considers the illegally-occupied POK as mostly legal Pakistani land and hence it does border China.

By the way, I agree with you. :)
