JuYongGuan-Great Wall

by dragon0419

Anyone have an idea how much it would cost to hire a driver to take me to the JuYongGuan portion of the Great Wall, wait for 1-2 hours and return me back to my hotel in the Wangfujing area?

Hi,
It costs 500RMB or so to charter a taxi. There actually are buses for the Wall and they are very cheap.If your hotel locates in the convinient distance to the bus station, you could just hop on the bus and go straghit forward the Wall.The bus leaves for the Wall at 6:30-10am but only departs at 5:30pm. You can consult the hotel servants for the detailed information and ask them to arrange the taxi or detail you the bus information for you. Many people have done so.Have a nice trip.

Thanks for the info. I just found out that there is the new train (S 2?) from the Beijing North Railway station to the Badaling portion of the Great Wall. I was told to take Line 2 of the subway and get off at the Xizhimen station. Does anyone know the directions to walk from the Xizhimen subway station to the BJ North railway station? I also heard that the Xizhimen subway station is kind of complicated to exit?

Travel Tips for Beijing

Forbidden City

by littleman

When visiting the Forbidden City i noticed all the tours walked straight down the middle of the site,in one door out the next.I would suggest take your time,take some lunch find a quite place on the side and take it in!

Mahjong

by tompt

People playing a chinese game (in this case mah jong) on the street or in a park are commonly seen.

Mah jong is a chinese game, some say it was invented by Confucius himself, but there is no evidence it existed before 1880.

To learn to play the game see the website below.

Sleep on the Great Wall!

by beibei08

Last summer, I slept on the Great Wall. It was probably one of the best experiences I have had in China so far. We first went to Jingshanling section of the Great Wall (way more remote than the touristy Badaling section) and got to watch the sunset on the wall. Then we went to a Chinese village for a local meal, the people were so nice and the food amazing. We spent the night in a watchtower and the next morning breakfast was brought to us by our guide then we hiked along the Wall for a couple of hours.

I totally recommend it if you want to actually experience the less touristy parts of the Great Wall. Also I recommend it if you want to see some of rural China. Being able to see a Chinese village is pretty neat.

I hear you can do it on your own, but I went through a travel company who arranged the transportation, guide, food, and flashlights. I included the webiste so people interested can check it out.

Antique shopping at Panjiayuan

by Confucius about Panjiayuan Market

For many tourists to Beijing the Panjiayuan Market is a must see activity. Try to go there on a Saturday or Sunday if you are planning an itinerary for Beijing. I promise you that it's worth your extra time if you need one more day to make this feasible.
Panjiayuan is simply the best and biggest bazaar in Beijing. It has something for everybody from antiques to furniture and art as well as books and baubles. Even if you don't have any money left to buy something, Panjiayuan is still an entertaining place to browse and see interesting things. Photographers will find amusing subjects as well, especially the ethnic minorities selling their wares while dressed in their local costumes.
I promise you will see something there that makes you smile, and that's makes it a relaxing getaway if you or somebody in your company is not so interested in shopping. All kinds of souvenirs are available for sale. There are reproductions from the late Qing dynasty as well as real stuff from the Cultural Revolution era (1966- 1976).
Here is a sample of items I recall from memory: replica antique furniture, old books and maps, jade, old coins, swords, musical instruments, porcelain figurines, shadow puppets, Peking opera dolls, baskets, calligraphy, political propaganda posters, clay teapots, antique tin toys, Tibetan and other ethnic handicrafts, textiles, and trinkets from southwest China. The list goes on and on.
There also appears to be many replicas of the famous Sanxingdui bronze artifacts, a famous archeological site that was discovered near Chengdu in 1986.
The best buys are found among the Cultural Revolution items where authenticity is not likely to be an issue but you still must bargain hard for a fair price. I made the mistake of admiring one particular propaganda poster too much and the price skyrocketed after exhibiting excessive enthusiasm.

**UPDATE**
For people who are interested in looking at more photos of Panjiayuan and seeing what's available there, please visit VT member y_lyn's outstanding Panjiayuan album:
y_lyn Thousands of foreign tourists and Beijing residents descend on Panjiayuan every weekend, so the rule for bargaining here is the same that I discussed on my Tunxi page.
Panjiayuan merchants love to quote prices in denominations of a hundred yuan to see if foreigners bite the bait. There are few things at Panjiayuan worth more than 100 RMB, so bring your best bargaining skills. The market is always crowded, so it also helps to eavesdrop on what other people are paying for similar items especially if you understand Chinese. The best deals are made in the afternoon when hawkers are just beginning to pack, so try to remember where you saw that propaganda poster that you simply MUST have for your dormitory wall.
