Airport to the Hotel

by SeeTheWorld13879

I am going to Beijing in late September and I am staying at a hotel near the Temple of Heaven. The Beijing South Railway station is near the hotel.

Is it possible to take the new subway line from the airport to the Beijing South Railway station (take the airport line to Dongzhima and transfer to line 2 to get to the Xuanwumen station and then transfer to line 4 to get to the Beijing South Railway station.

I am not sure if line 4 is open yet?

Is there a quicker way to get there other than a taxi?

AFAIK, there's no line 4 as yet. Look on to see an interactive map of what's available now. The nearest metro stop to Beijing South train station is Puhuangyu on line 5.
What time are you travelling?

by wangyixuan1981

Yes, Line five will not be open until year 2009. you can follow ellyse's suggestion or directly take a taxi from the airport, about CNY 100.

I think it would cost quite a lot more than just 100 RMB. It was already 60 RMB getting from Beijing South train station to Chaoyang Park, and it was at night without much traffic.

closer to 130 or 150 RMB is my guest.

Re: Airport to the Hotel

I would agree!

Line 4 will open in Sep. 2009

Re: Airport to the Hotel

by yangzhigong

the best choice maybe take a taxi to "Tian Tan Dong Men"(the eastern door of the Tample of Haven), take Subway line 5, exchange at "Yong He Gong"(the LaMa tample), exchange Airport line at the next station, "Dong Zhi Men" .

this trip will cost no more than 40Rmb total.

We stayed in the exact same area during the Olympics and used the Subway a few times. There is a station right at TianTan, the Temple of Heaven, also near the Pearl Market. It's line 5, which is open and you can get to it, via transfer from the Airport. Have fun. For us it was the trip of a lifetime.

Travel Tips for Beijing

ATM's in Beijing

by machomikemd

as all of you know, I always try to do ATM tips on every country that I visit and here in Beijing is no different. Automated Teller Machines (ATM"s) are numerous in Beijing but a caveat, not all machines accept international withdrawals so you better look at the sides or in the center of ATM's to see if it accepts International Withdrawals, see the pictures for the logos. ATM's of Beijing that accept international withdrawals usually on the Cirrus, Plus, Mastercard, Maestro Consortium at they are the largest ATM networks in the world. (Discover and Star consortium of the US are not accepted here). Transaction charge is 20 RMB flat per withdrawal regardless of amount so if you would withdraw, I suggest to withdraw large since the 20 RMB service charge is constant!

Layout of Forbidden City

by SLLiew

There Forbidden City is not only a palace and administrative building of the late Ming and Qing Dynasty, it incorporates the elements of Chinese beliefs in fengshui (geomancy) as well in fortification in protection against attacks.

The Forbidden City is surrounded by a deep moat and different sections are separated by high walls.

The layout of the palace is in a north-south direction. The southern section is for the public to meet the Empeor while the northern section is for the Emperor and his family. There are no trees or potential hidding places for assasins in the south section but in the north section, there is a garden with trees for the Emperor's concubines and relatives.

Many of the beams and construction used nine or multiples of nines as nine in Chinese "jiu" sounds like longevity. The basic five elements of fire, earth, wind, metal and wood is also represented.

To appreciate the Forbidden City fully is to appreciate the Chinese culture and beliefs.

5 hrs hike on The Great Wall Part 2: Simatai

by xuessium

Simatai [司马台] is located in the north of Miyun county, 120 km NE of Beijing & was originally built during the Northern Qi dynasty (550-577) and rebuilt in the Hongwu years of the Ming dynasty. This section of Great Wall has retained original features of the Ming dynasty Great Wall.

It is 5.4 km long. Hanging precariously onto the Yanshan Mountain, Simatai is known for its steepness, ingenuity and uniqueness. It is separated by a valley into eastern and western parts. The latter is connected to the Jinshanling section with the steepest part of the wall inclined at 70 degs.

It is advised that you begin the hike at Jinshanling since much of the Simatai section is downhill (except for the very last 2 watchtowers). It would be MUCH more tormentuous the other way round. You'll would have hiked past at least 30 watchtowers from both sections in total before exiting Simatai.

You may see herds of goats along this section as there are farm lands below this section of the Wall.
WARNING: One of the farmers actually approached me for a "fee" after I had taken a picture of his goats. I smiled and simply walked away.

There is an exit fee of 40RMB (already pre-included in the tour fee), but you'll stay need to pay 5RMB to cross a suspension bridge over Yuanyang Lake (Reservoir).

You can choose to take another 30 mins to walk down the hill to Simatai Village for your transport back or opt for a 35RMB 5 minutes Flying Fox ride down. If you have no issues with height, I'll suggest you do the latter! It was a great way to end a good 5 hrs hike!

1) Wear sensible comfortable clothes & shoes and bring enough water and sunblock (sunny days)! This isn't a walk in the park!
2) There are persistent touts. Be firm but never rude and after 5 or 6 towers of toil, they'll give up. There're 2 types: The peddlars and the "shortcutters" who offer "shortcuts" to struggling folks.

Market for clothes, sporting goods and so on...

by tremendopunto about Hongqiao Market (Pearl Market)

If you are looking for cheap clothes, technical equipment and fakes you should try the HONGQIAO market which is inside a big building with three or four storeys. It is situated closer to the Temple of Heaven. From there it is easy to reach. Not only pearls - clothes, sport clothes, technical equipment, too. Everything which is possible to fake! It all depends on your own bargain skills;-)
