Oh. I meant 5 km missing to 1,000 km. It's 930 km from the border to Ankara and 351 km from the sign to Batumi (if they are to believe), so that means some 400 km missing. Huge error.

As a foreigner you can't drive in China, so they don't give a damn for spelling.

You can drive in China, they just give you a Chinese license plate.

I have read some reports about people who wanted to drive through China, but it is not very easy to import your car there. Although it might be possible, taking a flight or some bus should be much easier.

Of course, by bike should also be possible. 7000 kms by bike is quite a challenge

The PRC generally does not recognize International Driving Permits and does not permit foreigners to drive in China without a Chinese license. Note that Hong Kong and Macau licenses are also considered to be foreign and having one of them will not allow you to drive in the mainland. This supposedly changed in 2007 and short-term driving without a Chinese license became legal. However, as with many laws in China, official changes and changes in practice do not necessarily correspond; as of December 2008 it is still illegal for foreigners to drive without a Chinese license. Unless you have diplomatic status, importing foreign vehicles is nearly impossible.
Rented cars most often come with a driver and this is probably the best way to travel in China by car. Driving in China is not recommended unless you are used to extremely chaotic driving conditions. Even if you are used to chaotic driving conditions, note that driving in China's cities is not for the faint hearted, and parking spaces are often very difficult to find. Traffic moves on the right in mainland China. Many neighbors, such as India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan as well as the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau have traffic that moves on the left.
