Possibly unanswerable question?

by SandiM

Here's a tough one but perhaps someone has a link that I can find the answer myself? When I visited Beijing's Forbidden City last year, I wandered alone through the maze of walled corridors. At one spot, just east of the main centerline and a little north of the 9 dragon screen (I think) I peered down one small alleyway and saw a lovely door at the end with a painted lady on it. The painted lady seem to be peering back at me, so I photographed her. Now, this photo is quite popular with my friends and all want to know the lady's identity, or what the area is called. Any help?

Do you mean the 9 Dragon Screen that is pictured on my page:

This is not in the Forbidden City. It is in the nearby "Beihai Park".

Re: Possibly unanswerable question?

No, sorry, that's not the one. I think it's in the northeast quarter of the forbidden city. I may just have to buy a book on the City and see if they have a pic of it. thanks anyway, though!

There is a 9 dragon screen within the Forbidden City, but I am not familiar with the painted lady. Can you put her on your travel page?

Hi, I will be visiting the Forbidden City soon. Will look out for the information you are looking for. Will vtmail you my email in case you can email a pic file of the painted lady. If I see, I will take a photo of it :)

Beijing's History

Beijing has been the capital of numerous dynasties throughout its history, including the Jin, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties. With but few interruptions, the city has been China's capital almost continuously since AD 1272, when the Mongol ruler Kublai Khan established his political base there.
In 1420 it was made the official capital city of the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), under the name of Beijing ('Northern Capital'). The city has becom an integral part of the country's history over the past eight centuries.

Ancient Time & the Bell Tower

by Willettsworld

In ancient China people divided the night into five Gengs. A Geng was an ancient time unit used to divide the night, every Geng marked a Shichen (another time division unit which is the equivalent to two hours). The first Geng came at dusk and was called Xu (dog) (from 19:00-21:00) also known as the Ding Geng; the second Geng, marking the time people settled down for sleep, was called Hai (pig) Shi (from 21:00-23:00); the third Geng, Zi (rat) Shi, signalled the middle of the night (from 23:00-01:00); the fourth Geng was called Chou (ox) Shi (from 01:00-03:00); and Yin (tiger) Shi (from 03:00-05:00) which was the fifth Geng, also called the Liang Geng, marked the dawn of a new day. When the Ding Geng and Liang Geng were announced, the drum was to be beaten first, followed by the striking of the bell. When the second, third and fourth Geng were announced, only the bell was struck. As the bell of the first Geng (Xu Shi or Ding Geng) sounded every night, the gate of the city was closed and the traffic was stopped, which was called Jingjie which means "clearing the streets".

The Anti-Japanese War Museum...

by wongjiahui

The Anti-Japanese War Museum at Marco Polo Bridge shows a part of history that not many people in the West get a chance to learn about. Despite the name of the museum, it's not meant to offend anyone, just educate and pass on the history so that we might learn from it and stop it from happeniing again.

The museum showcases artifacts from what the Chinese consider the beginning of WWII, when they were invaded by Japan. (Note for English speakers, buy the guide book before you go in, that way you'll actually be able to learn about the history of the invasion instead of just looking at the pictures and artifacts.)

Located near Marco Polo Bridge, you can also see the actual bridge where the first shots were fired. On the bridge you'll find 501 stone dragons lining the sides as well as part of the original bridge. It's called the Marco Polo bridge after the traveller who reputedly took the design back to Europe, where you can find similar looking bridges.

Nice shopping area with great shops

by nepalgoods about Qianmen Street

Qianmen Street has always been a lively shopping area with souvenirshops as well as famous shops for tea, jewelery or clothes. But is was also crowded with cars and busses. Now it was changed into a pedestrian street with renovated houses alongside. Here you can find some of the most famous teashops, boutiques of Gucci or Zara. There are also some nice restaurants and teahouses.

The Beijing Metro

by Paul2001

A very pleasant surprise about traveling within Beijing and the rest of China is the quality of the local metro systems. Beijing's is relatively new and expanding at a stunning pace. This is probably quite necessary considering how the city is growing and the resulting traffic congestion. Furthermore the Olympics will be here in 2008 and Beijing will have many people from all over the world to move back and forth to each event. There are now four operational line but there will eventually be 15.
The public transit system here is very cheap by Western standards. As in some European cities the cost of the fare depends on how far you a traveling along the the line. A minimum cost is just Y35 which is but 35 US cents. I did not see any machines dispensing tickets. I bought mine from a counter with relative ease. Each station is numbered so just point out the number you are going to on the map. The attendant will easily understand.
The system itself is very clean and efficient. There are lots of English signs to you can navigate problem free. Also the upcoming station stops are announced both in Mandarin and English. My only beef with the metro system was that it is very crowded. I have also been told to watch your belongings closely. Even Beijing has pickpockets.
