Beijing cab

by Lisza

Any Asians went to Bjg recently n used a taxi driver to move around? Can advise estimated cost for a day trip to Mutianyu? Can taxis generally accommodate 4adults+1child(4yo)?

I have tried to make reservations for an apartment, but they mentioned they need a deposit but not via credit cards. How on earth can you do that? Anyone with the experience?

hi megalen 30

let us not be technical. the writer has i am certain innocently mentioned asians as they are more likely to be better informed ( though not necessarily so ). if you have input to the question why don't you just reply.

Hee, just needed to eliminate possibly inflated-priced drivers with preference to lighter-skinned folks, no offence!

Travel Tips for Beijing

Large open spaces

by meteorologist1

In the Temple of Heaven Park or any park in Beijing, you will find that you will be doing a lot of walking. Getting from one attraction to another may be a long walk. The large open spaces in the park strongly contrast the tight, crowded streets of Beijing.

Skating on the moat at the Forbidden City

by mke1963

A particularly fun activity - and one which you can tell disbelieving friends back home - is skating on the frozen moat of the Forbidden City. The entrance is in Zhongshan Park and you can rent skates there for a couple of hundred kuai deposit. It can get very busy in at the weekends, but it is a good way to warm up.

Explore the City

by Skigirl

Beijing is a very dynamic city, you need to walk around and explore the different areas. There is a Russian district with russian speaking store merchants and russian merchandise. Walking around downtown Beijing is very invigorating shopping, people and culture. Remember if you are taking a taxi . . .have a card with your hotel in Chinese on it!!! Most drivers do not speak any other languages.

pearls in my pockets...

by angelochka about Hongqiao Market (Pearl Market)

the shop is huge, very wide choice of pearls, they also show you how to extract pearls from the shell, how many pearls you can find in it, what colors, how to be sure these are real pearls and not some plastic...very important indeed! the girl whom told me all this offered a handful of pearls coming just from a fresh new shell, i didnt know where to put all of them, so i put them in my coat's pocket and from time to time giving them to friends...just occasionally saying..hey! dont you want some pearls:) sometimes they fall from my pocket on the ground... i bought earrings and had a bracelet as a gift, sure i would buy more if i wouldnt have bought pearls in Shanghai a year ago..so i stopped myself:) different prices starting from 5$ till...??? but if you take a lot you always get something for free

Taxis can be had cheaply, and are relatively easy to find.

Meter starts at 10 yuan, and is good for three km. Goes up from there in increments, which are stated on the passenger windows.

Taxi from the airport to downtown (Wangfujin) should run you 80 yuan: 70 for the drive, plus 10 for the highway fee.

You can hire drivers for the day, as well. Should cost you about 600 for the day.

The government has pushed all of the drivers to study English, because of the upcoming Olympics, so it should be relatively easy to comunicate with your drivers.
