Anyone know anything about the Beijing Shihao International Hotel? Shopping tips, sightseeing tips

by Poogiej

We'll be travelling to Beijing for a short (4-day) trip 24-27 November 2005. Although I can speak a little Mandarin, we've never been to China. Curious if anyone is familiar with this hotel and would appreciate some suggestions regarding how to best take advantage of our short vacation. I believe the hotel is right at the southwest corner of Tianmen Square. Is there good shopping nearby? Nightlife?

Heard conflicting stories of how best to get to the Great Wall....input??

Is new SCUBA equipment available anywhere in for purchase in the Beijing area?

We VERY adventerous and will be willing to go to lengths to make the most of our visit. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Lots of questions! Thanks everyone that provides input!!

We'll appreciate any guidance we can get.

Travel Tips for Beijing

Chinese Pork Sausages

by machomikemd

chines pork sasages are good! they taste sweet and slightly salty and is made up of pork fillings. they are ususally eaten bare, without sauce or hot dog bun and is available everwhere for 4 RMB a piece. eating 2 is very filling and again it is very good so why not buy one and eat it! also great with rice as a meal (well I'm a rice person you see). also good to pair it with lemon drinks.

Comfortable Walking Shoes are a MUST

by Green_Frog

Make sure you have comfy shoes/sneakers as you'll be doing a ton of walking especially on the Great Wall. If you have a large foot and most westerners do - don't think you'll be able to buy shoes in China - it's not going to happen. My daughter is extremely lucky she has a size 6 foot 'small' by our standard but the norm in China so returned home with 10 pairs of shoes!!

The first Summer Palace dating...

by o00o

The first Summer Palace dating from the 13th century was looted and razed by Anglo-French troops in 1860. The decadent Dowager Empress Ci Xi then expended scarce resources to build a second Summer Palace and extensive gardens around Kunming Lake, a few kilometers to the east.

This new palace also had to be rebuilt after being torched by allied troops during the Boxer war in 1900.

This 18th century Bell Tower replaces the original which was built on this site at the same time as the Drum Tower.

Qing Dynasty Taoranting Park is an exception to that elitist rule as it is reputed to have always been open to the public.

China's wonderful parks and lakes are now open to everyone but it was not always been like that. In fact, most parks were private gardens reserved for the pleasure of the feudal lords and mandarins who ran the country until the Sun Yat Sen republic of 1911.

Micro brewed beer and some support

by dutchboycalledjan about Houhai Zoo

This small bar/restaurant at the shore of lake Houbai didn't try to hail me with 'Hello, want a drink?' Also, it had just opened, at 15.00. There was an outside sitting area, just a few steps higher, looking over the water. There was a sign reading 'micro brewery beer'. I gave it a try. And it was good, good beer. Their BBQ was also good. Furthermore, some of the staff speak good English and helped me out with a telephone card and getting back by bus (which is even for Chinese people like solving a sudoku). You can call them always, they said, for help in Chinese.

Their motto: 'shut up, just drink'. Come as you are!

easy go!!!!!


it is qute convenient to go around the Beijing you can take subway or bus... on the bus there is a person who can tell you where to get off the bus... or you can take taxi it's relatively cheap to take one.......well it's all up to you
