Beijing short visit - any new rules?

by kaydee2

I will be in China (mainly Guangzhou and Gaozhu) on business from Aug 1st - Aug 7th. I was thinking of flying to Beijing during the weekend Aug 2nd - 3rd to visit the Forbidden Kingdom and Great wall of China.

Quite worried as I am traveling alone. I have heard that there are many new rules in Beijing due to the Olympics. Is this true? Are there any restrictions imposed on visitors that I need to be aware of? Is entry restricted to any particular area? Can I visit tourist spots easily that weekend?

Forbidden Kingdom?! Goodness, you make Beijing sound like a bastion in Lord of the Rings... or actually, the movie by Jet Li and Jackie Chan. ;) I think you mean the Forbidden City, don't you?
I'm not up-to-date about the security measures, but Beijing seems pretty over-the-top with them. Tons of new security measures at airports, and you even have to go through security checks for the metro system, so it's pretty slow and tedious.
Don't think you'll have any major problems going to the sights -- apart from the amount of people everywhere, so I hope you're prepared for that.

oops sorry I meant *Forbidden City* :)

Re: Beijing short visit - any new rules?

by ellyse

Yup, that's what I thought too. :)
Seriously though, are you able to afford any more than just 2 days in Beijing? Don't forget that flights would more or less take up half the day each way already -- 1 hour to get to the airport, 1 hour before flight departure time to check-in for the flight, 3 hours for the flight (assuming Guangzhou -- Beijing), around 1 hour to get from the airport to town... that's already 6 hours, assuming no delays!
Beijing has lots to see and I would usually recommend 4-5 days there if possible. 2 days just to see the Great Wall and Forbidden City would be possible, but since you're already making the long trek up there, wouldn't it be a better use of time and money if you could take some time to see the other sights as well?

Travel Tips for Beijing

The Ming Tombs are...

The Ming Tombs are magnificent. The gardens are beautiful. With music playing throughout the day it is a wondrously relaxing place to visit. There are thirteen Emporers buried here and we visit the Changling Tomb after entering by the Sacred Way.

Chinese red envelopes

by ntm2322

The Chinese red envelopes are called hong2 bao1 in Mandarin and are popular gifts for any occasion. They symbolize luck and wealth. In western countries people use presents to mark the occasion, in mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau most of the time red envelopes (with money inside, of course) are used.

When offering a red envelope to somebody it must be done with both hands and expressing some wishes at the same time (Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday, Congratulations, Good Health, etc.). On the other hand, people who receive the red envelope must receive it with both hands and express his/her gratitude (a simple word of thank you is good enough). Never refuse a red envelope.

When offering a red envelope never put coins like little change or dirty, creased bank bills inside, instead, use “good-looking” bank bills.
How much to give it depends of you and the degree of intimacy you have with the person you want to give the red envelope to.

Many Chinese people use red envelopes in their own houses for good luck, they usually place red envelopes under small tangerines. In this case coins are used instead of bank bills.

Let’s see another example. It is Chinese New Year. If you are a single person you are not supposed to hand out any red envelopes, just sit and wait for them. If you are married you are supposed to carry with you a generous bunch of red envelopes for the whole week to distribute them and expect to receive a few only from your mother-in-law and father-in-law.

In office, it is the same. If you are married you should give red envelopes to your colleagues’ children and if you have a child they will do the same to you. You should also give a red pocket to your single co-workers but once again, because you are married you will receive none.

In Beijing, the most fun that...

by McCurry

In Beijing, the most fun that my wife Juli and I had was the day we just took off walking up and down side streets and alleys. We must have walked 5 or 6 miles. With over 10 million population, each neighborhood is like a small town within itself. We had a great time looking thru the family owned corner markets. The selection of food was impressive and the people were friendly. Small businesses owned by individuals are robust in China. (Don't tell anyone but.. I think they are more capitalist than we Americans are...)

High end shopping and more

by muratkorman about Qianmen Street

Qianmen Street resembles a late Qing-dynasty street scene and is close to traffic. There is a tram operating between both ends of the street. You can find some high end shops on both sides of the street. Moreover, there are many small shops on paralel and side streets where you can find anything you can imagine. As you guess, the main street is expensive, but the side streets offer prices competing with Silk Market. Various
