Taxi Info from Airport

by teach45

My wife and I are arriving in Beijing on Sept 06 at 14:50 to attend the Paralympics. Our daughter is a BB player. We have rented an apt close to the Olympic Green. I have heard conflicting stories about getting a taxi at the airport wo getting scammed. Our landlord has given us the exact location of the apt in Mandarin and English,(I have printed copies). Will this info be sufficient? Any advice/tips appreciated.

The service is largely upgraded already in the pre-olympic period. It's sufficient if you have the full address on hand to the taxi-driver. You should go the taxi quene/stand to take taxi. Any driver asking you to go to your destination is not trustworthy. It would be great if your landlord can arrange pick up by a taxi-driver.

If you want, I can help to arrange one for you because I always go to Beijing for business and leisure.

The location that has been supplied by your landlord should be fine to give to the taxi driver, but make sure you get a taxi from the official rank. Do not be tempted by anyone inside the arrivals lounge offering to get you a taxi as they will not be official and will be much more expensive.

For a faster (and most probably cheaper) ride, probably try taking the airport express metro to Sanyuanqiao, then get a taxi from there.

Yes, the ill-regulated personal car drivers are not trustworthy and always annoying. Go and find a REAL taxi, which has typical taxi decoration and number begins with "京B XXXXX". (I don't know if the first Chinese character stands for "Beijing" will display correctly)

If you are not sure, find an Olympic Volunteer, they are everywhere and will help you.

When ever you travel in Beijing on Taxi's, have the desitination in Chinese or FORGET IT! You say Tianimen Square they look at you with a "What the".
Also think about luggage.
The taxis are Protons so don't look at heading back to the airport with 4 suitcases, etc.
We booked a private shuttle BUS back so he could fit our luggage in the back.
Only use the two tone cabs, not the red ones...could be other colours, with a stenciled sign on the door of the cab. They are fake cabs...with cheating meters.
One last bit of advice...BRING CASH. I went to a big dept store in Beijing and presented my Citibank Mastercard only to be told we don't accept this card...even though they had signs accpting Visa & Mastercard everywhere.
After yelling and screaming at them for 10 minutes, they swiped my card, I signed and went on my way.

Travel Tips for Beijing

Map of the Forbidden City

by blue_sky04

The Forbidden City was home to twenty-four Chinese emperors over 491 years between 1420 and 1911. The Forbidden City is known as the Imperial Palace Museum.

The palace is 960 metres long and 750 metres wide, and it has 9,999 rooms. The Palace is surrounded by a moat 3,800 metres long and 52 metres wide. Intruders were discouraged by guards in watchtowers with bow and arrows.

The south entrance of the Forbidden City is the Gate of China (also known as the Gate of Ming in the Ming Dynasty or the Gate of Great Ching in the Ching Dynasty).
A long narrow courtyard connects the Gate of Great China and the Gate of Heavenly Peace (called Tian An Men today or known as the Gate of Receiving Mandate of Heaven in the Ming Dynasty). The Gate of Heavenly Peace leads to the Gate of Correct Demeanor, which is known as Duan Men.

The Imperial Ancestral Temple and the Altar of Land and Grain are located on the east and the west side of this area respectively.

The Meridian Gate is the front entrance of the Forbidden City. Inside the Meridian Gate, the Forbidden City is divided into two parts, the Outer Court and the Inner Court.

- The Inner Court is the residential building and gardens for the imperial family.
It contains the Palace of Heavenly Purity where the Chinese emperor conducted state affairs, the Hall of Union and the Palace of Earthly Tranquility where the empress lived.
On the east and the west, six palaces were built on each side .

- The Outer Court is for holding court and performing ceremonies.
The Gate of Supreme Harmony is the south gate of the Outer Court. Inside the Gate of Supreme Harmony, there are three great halls: the Hall of Supreme Harmony, the Hall of Complete Harmony, and the Hall of Preserving Harmony, The north gate of the Outer Court is the Gate of Heavenly Purity, which separates the Outer Court and the Inner Court.

Rubbing the door knobs

by filipdebont

It was kind of funny to see, as each time we were passing one of the many gates in the Forbidden City in Beijing, all the Chinese visitors were rubbing the big door knobs,

It must be some kind of superstition, as they believe that rubbing these door knobs will bring good luck.

It is also funny to see that the rubbed door knobs are really shining and the higher ones have a darker colour as these knobs can not be reached

Just something to share

by ghweeh

Located along the walkway at Tiananmen square. Notice it as we were walking towards the Forbidden city. In that twinkling moment, I wonderred is that for deco purpose or practical or both??? Will never know till I visited again at night....

Fixed Priced Shopping at Last!

by walterwu about Carrefour

Carrefour at China International Exhibition Centre on 3rd Ring Road offers a wide range of products at fixed price.

Save the bargaining experience, which could cost you 3-5 minutes per item you intend to purchase.

Carrefour provides free auto locker service at the entrance.

We took a taxi there which cost us about 20RMB from the hotel. Anything but at slightly higher prices.

Taxis in Beijing

by Gryphon25

One of out travel companions had hurt their ankle so we were forced to take taxis even over short distances. This proved to be more of a problem than we thought. The drivers refused to take us to our destination because it wasnt worth the fare. We eventually worked out the best thing you could do was to first get in and then give your destiantion.

As you already know always keep your eye on the meter to make sure its running and running properly.
