Please give directions

by maxijim

Guang Ju Yuan Binguan, 52 Da Zha Lan Xi Jie, Qianmen, Xuanwu Qu, Beijing, 100051

Re: Please give directions

Wow, that's going to be a long way to travel. The hospital isn't very conveniently located, it's beyond the 4th ring road and the nearest metro stops are Huixinxijie Beikou or Datunlu East on metro line 5. Going by road, Huixinxijie Beikou seems to be slightly nearer -- however, both are still about 2.5-3.5 km from the hospital, so I would advise you to take a taxi. The nearest metro stop to your hostel is Qianmen on line 2.
Take metro line 2 from Qianmen, one stop east to Chongwenmen, then change to line 5 and get off at either of the stops I mentioned above. The journey should take a bit more than half an hour, fare 2 RMB. Look on http://www.explorebj.com/subway/ for a good interactive map of the Beijing metro system.
If you go by taxi for the entire journey, I would expect a fare of no less than 60 RMB for the entire journey, perhaps even 70 RMB or so, depending on traffic conditions.

Taxi best unless somehow you can communicate to the taxi driver in Mandarin where you want to go. I would guess RMB 60 to 75 depending on traffic.

"Taxi best unless somehow you can communicate to the taxi driver in Mandarin where you want to go."
Is there a typo somewhere? That doesn't make sense.

Re: Please give directions

by polartraveller

sorry what I meant to say is taxi is best but one must be able to communicate to the taxi driver where to go, perhpas have the hotel staff help write the address down in Chinese, giving the driver an English address will be hopeless, he will say he knows where to go then drive around the city for 1/2 day running up the meter.

Re: Please give directions

by maxijim

Thanks guys.

any chance of a chinese translation for the directions / address

Re: Please give directions

by ellyse

I would've given you the Chinese, but Chinese characters won't show up correctly on VT, so it would be useless. Email me at ellyse99@yahoo.com and put "VirtualTourist" and your own username (eg maxijim) in the subject line please.

Re: Please give directions

by polartraveller

You can write them on word and then pdf the document

Re: Please give directions

by ellyse

So could I! But that doesn't work for VT. Duh.

Re: Please give directions

by polartraveller

you can always email the pdf document. or just write it down and take a picture

Re: Please give directions

The English name of the hosiptal is called the Century Village Hospital.
I will email the Chinese address to your VT email address.
Somehow I cannot locate it on Google's Beijing Map, if I find it later will let you know but the direction should be very clear for taxi driver.

Re: Please give directions

by ellyse

That is exactly why I asked this person to email me. I don't like sending unsolicited emails. I'm not stupid, of course I knew that I could send it as an attachment. I've been doing that for quite a number of other travellers.

Travel Tips for Beijing

Summer palace

by extrajoce

The summer palace is set in a beautiful location, on the slope of a hill next to a superb lake surrounded by a lush vegetation. What makes it all the more impressive, and typical of China's extraordinary monuments, is that the hill was made from digging up the lake. In this sense, the palace is as stunning as the Forbidden City and the Great Wall: it gives the visitor a breathtaking insight into a unique and titanic civilisation.

Confucius says: "2 out of 3 ain't good!"

by Confucius

Confucius says: When in need of directions in Beijing, you must ask 5 people and hope 3 answers are the same.
There are two reasons for this phenomena:
1. There are many people in Beijing who just arrived from other little parts of this big country. They are just as lost as you are.
2. Chinese people typically would rather attempt saving face with a bad guess instead of admitting that they really don't have a clue, especially if they are proud local Pekingese.

Exploring the hidden areas of the Forbidden City

by herzog63

There are some cool things to see in the Forbidden city. Small statues, Urns, rooms where the Emperor entertained, sleeping quarters etc....Around every corner you can find something new and interesting!!

Wangfujing

by socrates_07

As I know this is the biggest shopping street in Beijing. When I was there in 2000 I was very surpriced about the modern stores... but in 2003, when I was the third time in Beijing I was surprised again. There you will find not only modern but also very exclusive stores. (not every store, of coures) On the western side of the street are plent of small stores selling clothes. You will also find the China Photo Studio about halfway up at no.: 228 which will produce passport photos as well as develop film. One of my favorite store is the Foreign Language Bookstore, the largest in China and a good recource for travellers. What else you can find there: Better ask me, what you CAN NOT find there.
If you are tired after all day shopping and a dinner, you can go to a movie. No problem at Wangfujing. Well, I did it... but unfortanely I didnt understand anything. HERO in Chinese ... but without subtitle.

Taxi

by travellercheech

Taxis are abundant in Beijing and the charges are very reasonable for the tourist. This should be your first choice of transportation unless you are on a strict budget. If you do not speak the language, you should get your hotel to write your destination on a card. In addition, do not forget to have the hotel name and address, unless you are happy with a one-way trip.

I booked (包车 ‘baoche‘) a cab for an entire day for 600 RMB including highway toll. Do seriously consider doing this when going to the outskirts. My cabbie took me to the Great Wall, Ming Tombs and the Summer Palace. Although you may be able to get on a tour for 150 RMB, you may end up wasting a lot of time visiting medicine shops where they will try to get you to part with your money for some herbs of unknown quality.
