Beijing to Bangkok in November.

by bambalouni

Hello.
I would appreciate all inputs about how to travel from Beijing to Bangkok. Is there a train that makes this route?
Thanks

Hello

There are definetly trains in China. The train from Beijing to HongKong costs about $100 and takes about 3 days. Whatever you do be sure to get a sleeping bed. Costs will depend on how many people in your car, kind of bed/seat and top or bottom.

You can make it as far as Ho Chi Minh City by train from Beijing but from there you'll need to use buses and optional boats to get to BKK if you don't want to fly. Check www.seat61.com for more information on the trains.

1) Direct train from Beijing to Hanoi, Vietnam, check with seat61.com as the previous post stated;
2) From Vinh, VN (by bus) cross border to Laos and onward to Thailand, less people travel this route;
3) Take the train from Hanoi to Hochiminh City, then bus/boat to Cambodia, check with Capitol/Mekong Express, they have regular daily bus services, this is a very popular route for travellers;
4) From Phnom Penh/Siem Reap, go north cross border at Poipet into Thailand, or go south via Sihanoukeville/Koh Kong to Trat/Thailand;

Once you are in Thailand, transportation to Bangkok is the easiest part of the whole journey.

Travel Tips for Beijing

How to say... in Chinese?

by FranckyBrewster

I have made a set of cards with names of touristic sights/streets in English and in Chinese. Really handy if you are lost somewhere or need to communicate with a taxi driver.

THE FORBIDDEN CITY
For any...

by SirRichard

THE FORBIDDEN CITY
For any visitor, the Forbidden City (Imperial Palace) is a must, but it takes at least one day to see all you can see here. It is like a city inside Beijing, so wear comfortable shoes....
The Forbidden City stands in the center of Beijing. It is protected by high walls and a moat on all four sides and consists of dozens of halls and courtyards. The emperors of two dynasties, the Ming and the Ching, lived here with their families and hundreds of court ladies and palace eunuchs. From their throne in the Forbidden City they governed the country by holding court sessions with their ministers, issuing imperial edicts and initiating military expeditions.

Just bring yourself

by junkgirl

Just enough to accomodate the things that you will be bringing . You can always get unexpensive extras for your purchases. Forget about bringing an empty extra bag for your purchases. Depending on the season but definitely good walking shoes. Clothes are plenty and not dear so just bring enough and buy them in Beijing. You can get your basic needs easily. I wanted to bring toothpaste with me but lucky i didn't cos i got it at Watsons for a fraction of what it cost me back home. Only bring any special medication or toiletries. The rest you can find at Watsons or other stores...you might even find something you couldn't find back home.

Beijing's Underground City

by cpim2004

For more than 20 years, Beijing’s Underground City, a bomb shelter just beneath the ancient capital’s downtown area, has been virtually forgotten by local citizens, despite being well-known amongst foreigners since it officially opened in 2000.
The Underground City has also been called the Underground Great Wall, since they had the same purpose: military defense.
This complex is a relic of the Sino-Soviet border conflict in 1969 over Zhenbao Island in northeast China’s Heilongjiang River, a time when chairman Mao Zedong ordered the construction of subterranean bomb shelters in case of nuclear attack.
The tunnels, built from 1969 to 1979 by more than 300,000 local citizens and even school children, wind for over 30 kilometers and cover an area of 85 square kilometers eight to eighteen meters under the surface. It includes around a thousand anti-air raid structures.

The address is 62 West Damochang Street, Qianmen, tel. 6702-2657. Apparently, there is another site in Beijing Qianmen Carpet Factory at 44 Xingfu Dajie, Chongwen District, tel. 6701-5079 and a lesser known one at 18 Dazhalan Jie in Qianmen.

Drinks and fantastic views

by MickeH about Palace View

On top of the Grand Hotel Beijing lies the Palace View.
Here you can sit outside in the open air and have your pick among the many liquid refreshments that the bar has to offer. And looking over the rail you can see a superb panorama over central Beijing, including the Forbidden City.

Make your way here a warm summer day when the sun is setting and the lights are coming on all over the city. You'll think youv'e died and come to... well not paradise, then the drinks would have been free, but still a very good place. Order in a nice whiskey and you'll feel like you're on top of the world.

This place get top marks all around, the service, the view, the selection, everything is top notch.
But off course, all things has a price, and the prices here are far above what you would pay in any of the bars around town. It is the Grand Hotel, don't forget.
Still, coming from Sweden and our prices on alcohole, I still found it well worth a couple of visits.
All is relative after all. There are mainly men in suits here, and you should probably dress well.
But we showed up in less then fancy clothes and there were no problems.
Although we did feel a bit out of place.
