Transport and or tours from port of beijing Xingang to downtown hotel area

by hawaiiholly

Will be taking a criuse and getting off the ship on in Beijing, specifically the port of Beijing.
I want to take a tour on the day of disembarkation and be dropped at the downtown hotel areas.
Any recommendations would be appreciated and reputable local tour guides.

Hmmm. You might want to try looking on the TripAdvisor (China) forum for recommendations: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g294211-i642-China.html

Travel Tips for Beijing

Beijing had been the capital of the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties during seven centuries when SunYat Sen chose Nanjing for capital in 1911.







When Beijing regained its title with the communist takeover in 1949, Soviet advisors flooded in and the city underwent a period of reconstruction during which much traditional architecture was destroyed to widen Chang'an Dajie and to make Tian'anmen Square large enough to accommodate the massive manifestations favoured by the Soviets. .







During this period, Beijing's famous fortified walls were torn down to make way for a ring road like Moscow's. This is part of it, looking North on Chaoyangmen Nan Dajie from Jianguomennei Dajie. Beijing is now circled by 4 ring roads and a fifth one is under construction.

Tipping in China? NO WAY!

by beijingdaytrips

Many travelers to China don't really know whether they should leave a tip or not as is the custom in most other parts of the world.

Well China is one of the exceptional countries on the world, where tipping is NOT the norm. Actually most people do not even grasp the concept of tipping and will give you your money back, or run after you with your change if you already left the establishment.

Of course if you go to a more upscale (western) restaurant and you are very satisfied with the food/service you can leave a tip and the staff will be able to grasp the concept.

In most 4-5* hotels a service charge of 15% is added to the bill.

So please remember when you are traveling to China: DO NOT TIP (as you will eventually spoil it for the people who live here...)

P.S. of course every rule has its exception: the ONLY exception on the NO TIPPING rule is tourguide(s) and/or drivers of tour busses (that means that you do not tip taxi drivers!).
If you are on a pre-booked tour with a tourguide and a driver and they have not taken you to the well-known tourist traps such as shops where you pay over the top prices for garbage, then you CAN give them a tip. Depending on how good their service was, you can basically tip anything from RMB 10 to RMB 50. Most of the times the guides split the tip with the driver.

Watching Boxing

by SLLiew

Boxing has 11 men weight categories from light flyweight (less than 48kg) to super heavyweight (greater than 91kg). Good news that in London 2012, women boxing will be added. Actually, I am not much of the boxing fan due the violence inflicted on the brain and ears of the boxer.

As each boxer wear headgear, it is important to remember which color red or blue, the boxer you are cheering for. Another sports that is represented by many countries.

Asian countries like China, Thailand and Mongolia performed well. While European boxers winning included Ireland, Italy, France, Russia, Ukraine.

There were a few times when the umpire stopped the fight but fortunately no knockout at least when I was there.

Beautiful artefacts

by Zirpsis about Cloisonne factory and shop

At the factory, where cloisonne artefacts are made, it was nice to watch the craftsmen work. They are so skilful. I took some pictures of the work shop. When you get to know the rather complicated method how these exquisite items are made and what elaborate work is required, you start to really appreciate the price tag on some of them. Wonderful gifts to take home and high quality!

Sports Bar

by SunZi about Frank's Place

Hi, found Frank's Place in Beijing, a great sports bar with good food and beer.
I was amazed that they even had NRL (not the most popular of sports outside of Aussie and UK). The beer selection is great with everything from Old Speckled Hen to Super Cold Carlsberg and a selection of local beers. Food was great especially the Homemade Meaty Pies.
Really worth a visit. We went on Wednesday when it was Quiz Night, great fun even if the locals were much better than us. Frank's also has a Barbie running out on the back deck with a geat selection and not expensive. Casual
