I went there in October/November so I can't really help with the weather question. Hope one of the locals can give you better input, or pack for all kinds of weather (like I do).

Dong Si Fan Dian - 5 mins walk to Dong Si Subway

by liyen80

Hi.
I just back from Beijing on 7 March .
The hotel is Dong Si Fan Dian - at Dong Cheng District , Dong Si West Road . But the hotel is inside the Hutong (old chinese housing area) . It cost me RMB168 with a Queen Size bed (2 of us) - The room a bit small but it had good hot water compare to the other 2 hotel i stayed at Wang Fu Jing .
The Hotel was operate on January 2010 . So it is still new and clean .You can get chinese food at the Hutong too .
Tel : 00861065257713
Service is good too.
If you use subway - just drop at Dong SI (line 05) Exit D - Go out from Exit D and Turn Left - Pass through a construction site (building subway line 06) , then the 1st junction on ur left , turn left into the Hutong . Walk around 4-5 mins - u will see the hotel (painted in green and white) on ur left !
Maybe u can call up to check whether they can provide extra bed for the bigger room - it will cost below RMB300.00

Hope this can help

What do you deem "budget"? It would be more helpful to provide a monetary price range.

A multicultural ethnicity market

by ntm2322

Panjiayuan Market, in Chinese is pan1 jia1 yuan2 jiu4 huo4 shi4 chang3.

The Beijing Panjiayuan Folk Culture Market (or the Panjiayuan Antiques Market) is a very popular and colorful market and opens everyday (the best days are Saturdays and Sundays).

It covers an area of 4.85 hectares and is situated in No. 200 West of Panjiayuan Bridge and south of the East Third Ring Road (between Panjiayuan Bridge and Huawei Bridge), in the Chaoyang district.

If you especially like antiques and collectibles and also arts and crafts, this is the right place to go. I can assure you won’t get bored as there are about 3,000 stalls to visit. This market is not only the China's biggest collecting and distributing center of art and craft articles but also the largest of Asia. Its merchandises are known for being the cheapest of its kind in Beijing as well.

What makes this market so interesting?

Anything unimaginable you can imagine you will be able to find here.
What makes it really interesting is the (Chinese) traditional cultural aspect. In the ethnic section you will see nice items ‘imported’ from almost all parts of China since most of the stallholders are people who come from their villages, towns, ethnic minorities to sell their goods in this market.

Should I bargain?
You must bargain down the offered price. From a few bucks to several hundreds, it has a lot to do with your bargaining skills.

The place to be for Beijing's fashionistas

by bali_junkie about Champagne Bar

Snuggled comfortably in one of Wangfujing's busiest intersections between Wangfujing Dajie and Beiheyan Dajie, Champagne Bar is one of the newest night spot s in town opening only a few weeks ago. After a tiring afternoon in Wangfujing's shopping area, a couple o f cool drinks sounded like a nice idea.

A courteous attractive waitress wearing a smart black uniform greeted us at the door. A distinct feeling of being transformed into a lounge scene somewhere in San Fransisco as soon as we stepped into the lounge area. Tastefully designed with brilliant lighting effects that's supposed to set moods complement ed with the upbeat acid jazz music, high cozy bar stools, a Tepanyaki Bar and an optical effect wine cellar filled with over 60 best wine selections and of course, champagne ranging from Moet to Veuve Clicquot, this new comer could pass off as "The place to be for Beijing's fashionistas"

It was barely past dinner time but there were already several customers in the bar lounge sipping their drinks and cozying up in large stylish deep burgundy suede sofas. The bar manager recommended several martini drinks from their Van Gogh Vodka collection apart from their signature drink, a glass of bubbly served with fresh strawberries on a silver tray. A pretty chic touch.... anything chic ........
