I’m honestly a little bit frightened now. I checked into a hotel in Banqiao today, and about half an hour ago someone knocked at my door. Three police officers stood there, and wanted to see my passport. I showed it to them, they checked the ID for something, and then left.
(Forgot to mention initially that I currently use an NWOHR passport in Taiwan.)
The hotel was booked via booking.com and has lots of positive reviews. The reception said that was a “general” check by the police which would happen from time to time in that area and other visitors had been checked as well.
Does someone know anything about that? Does this feel sketchy to you? What could be the reason behind this?
