    Budget Hostel


    I booked the hostel through I was not aware the toilet was actually outside the room before I actually enter to the room. The hostel looks really decent at the hallway, dinning room, and the reception area. But the room is very small for double. Inside the room, not as clean as I expected. Fortunately, the shower at the common bathroom was still okay with hot water.

    We paid for Y138 per room each night. I found that it was not value for money. After second night, we moved to Home Inn at Qianmen. We paid for Y218 per night, we felt much more comfortable and It was worth it.

    Unique Quality: Near Hutong area, 10-minutes walk to the metro station. The hostel is safe to stay cause they have CCTV everywhere, and good lockset.

    Directions: Dongsi Station (Line 5). Exit C, turn left on Dongsi street till Lishi Street turn left.

Motorbike stuff

by stickan144

I just bought a motorbike and need som leather clothes for the winter. Does anyone know where to find a store in Beijing. I am going there in October.
A motorbike shop might also work, so any suggestion is great.

Re: Motorbike stuff

by ElsieChin

There's always a shop selling something for anyone and everyone in Beijing. The shops in Silk Road (pronounced as /Siew Suay Chieh/) which houses labels from all over the world! It's on the main road that takes you to the Forbidden City, Tian An Men Sq, Wangfujing; a short distance from the metro/subway line, and a 10 minute walk from world Trade Ctr. People will tell you that you have to be brutal when it comes to slashing prices but I feel that as long as you are comfortable about the price you are being asked to pay, then there's no such thing as being fleeced or having paid too much. So what if someone gets their jeans initial offer of RMB800 slashed to RMB200 and you got yours at RMB500 when you had a more memorable and enjoyable time and especially when you have never bargained prices in your life. Btw, Wangfujing is akin to premium shopping area.

But can you tell me, is Silk ROAD different fron Silk MARKET?

Re: Motorbike stuff

by wangyixuan1981

it's a great association...

Silk ROAD is an ancient route from old China's capital Xi'An to western countries like the STANs.

Silk Market is a modern shopping place in Beijing, famous for its highly-imitational fake brand.

So why is Elsie reffering to Silk road (Re-Motorbikes?)

Travel Tips for Beijing

Forbidden City Starbucks Now Forever Forbidden!

by Confucius

You don't need to know how to say "Starbucks" in Mandarin Chinese. Workers inside the Forbidden City are used to hearing the same question from foreigners and can guess from your cup drinking hand motion that you're seeking a latte and not the loo.
Many foreign tourists are outspoken on whether an American company should be allowed to have a shop inside the emperor's historical residence. Of course the Ming emperors are rolling in their tombs out by the Badaling Great Wall, but most ordinary Chinese actually don't have a strong opinion about the international coffee chain's presence since it opened in 2000.
Maybe they just didn't see it. There aren't any signs posted on the palace grounds directing people to the Heavenly Altar of Almond Latte, but ask any Chinese museum worker pushing a broom and even they can understand what you are trying to find. ("Ah so! Foreign tourist asking me question, must be looking for coffee shop!") JULY 2007 UPDATE

Starbucks chose Friday the 13th as its unlucky last day of business inside Beijing's Forbidden City. The shop closed after months of controversy prompted by the Chinese blog of former CCTV television reporter Rui Chenggang, which called for Starbucks' eviction from the historic site out of respect for Chinese culture.

Starbucks finally decided to end their lease agreement following the Forbidden City's announcement in late June 2007 that it wants to operate all stores inside the palace museum and turn the present location of Starbucks into a beverage station selling multiple brands.

Out on the street

by mke1963

Beijing folk just love sitting outside in the street playing games. You see it everywhere in China, but it seems to be particularly prevalent in the streets of Beijing. On every corner, on every street, there are people sitting out playing mahjong, chess or cards.
No matter how cold, no matter how hot, people of all ages and social classes will just pull up some old chairs, a rickety table and play.
It's all serious stuff, and usually draws a crowd of onlookers. These onlookers are all far more expert than anyone playing and feel free to offer advice on how the game is going and what move should be made next. This advice often turns into raging arguments between the spectators with raised voices, animated waving and gesturing. This draws more people to join in, and these are even more experienced players who can always offer more and better advice.
Meanwhile, in the background, the players just get on with it.
Peking opera is best watched on the street, whenever someone pulls up some old chairs and a rickety table.....

During the peak times...

by Jontxu

If you need a taxi during the peak times, try not to ask your driver if he/she knows the adress you are heading to till you are in, if it´s very close they´ll refuse to bring you, and at least if you are in will be a little bit more difficult.
However you´ll be forced to close a fix price, it will be difficult to convince them to turn on the taxi meter, they´ll prefer to tell you that they don´t know the place where you want to go.
