|No, there's no need to apply for a new visa. Just bring the old one along with you when you travel and show both to immigration.|
It's helpful to show them the page with the current visa first, and then your new passport. They'll understand.

|Just make sure the validity period for your visa is still current.|
Actually, my experience is with my work visa - I'm not sure if it's any different for a tourist visa. Might be good to check with the embassy...

|Carrying both passports is the normal international standard but I have not seen this specified anywhere in the Chinese regs. Even if it is Ok there is a fair chance of coming across an immigration oficer who has not met the situation before. |
You might also check if the visa can be moved! Two of mine have fallen out because of the poor quality adhesive!
