Are there any areas in this province that are closed to foreigners?

Hi there. I'm going to be cycling through China soon. There are apparently still areas in the country that are closed to foreigners, though finding out where these areas are can be difficult. I'm planning to ask local police each time I enter a new province. Hopefully they'll show me where the closed areas are and I can copy them into my map book.
Is there anyone here who would be kind enough to write the following sentences down for me in Chinese script, so that I can simply show them to the police officers I speak to?

1. Are there any areas in this province that are closed to foreigners?

2. Can you show me where the closed areas are?

3. May I draw them into my map book?


Any help is much appreciated. Thank you very much!

    1. 这个省里是否存在禁止外国人出入的地方?
    2. 您可以把这些地方在地图上指给我看吗? (I'm assuming that "show" means point out on the map)
    3. 我可以把这些地方在我的地图上画出来吗?

    Hey JourneyMan

    Where did you read about this? Outside those areas that require a special visa for entry, I am unaware of foreigners being denied access anywhere these days.

    Thank you very much, Univerio, those are perfect :)

    XiaoJ, there's a site here by a couple who cycled across China in 2004:

    There may be fewer closed areas by now, especially because of the Olympics, but I'm still bound to encounter some if I don't enquire at the police stations.
