Pullman West Wanda?

by amytoh

Have a complimentary stay at this hotel. Any reviews and comments about this hotel?

Is it convenient for food and toddler?

How much wouod taxi fare costs from the hotel to Yiheyuan/Yuanmingyuan and Badaling? Do speak Mandarin and planning to tour Beijing on our own. Should I charter a car+driver for the day to the summer palaces and another day to badaling/ming tombs? Coz afraid would not be able to hail a taxi on the way back.

Thanks in advance.
Cheers.

Rather far out and I don't think that's a particularly interesting area either. It's >1 km to the nearest metro stops, but since you're travelling with a toddler you're not thinking of using the metro, I suppose?
No need for a vehicle rental and driver to Summer Palace (think you can safely skip the Old Summer Palace unless you have a lot of time to spare). I would recommend vehicle rental and driver for the Great Wall, but NOT Badaling as it's too touristy, try Mutianyu instead.
I would estimate around 40-60 RMB taxi fare to Summer Palace, depending on traffic conditions.

Travel Tips for Beijing

Prices in Beijing (transport / food / attractions)

Forum Reply -- prices for getting around in Beijing

Beijing is not an expensive city by European or American standards, but it is by Chinese standards and Asia-ex Japan standards.

Transportation is cheap. The subway network is extensive and is less than US$1/ride (just a few RMB for shorter rides). Buses are also cheap and the network extensive, but they are hard to figure out if you don't read Chinese. Taxis are very cheap, and you can get across the sprawling city for RMB100. Flagfall is RMB 10 which gets you 3 km, with an additional RMB 2 for each km afterwards (and RMB 3 per each km after you've gone 15km).

Food - you can eat for as little as RMB 10 a person if you just want some fried rice or noodles. More likely for a Chinese meal is RMB 50 / person (for a filling and satisfying meal). If you want to go high end, you can, and the sky is the limit with prices.

Attractions' entrance tickets - you can find the prices you're looking for online, but generally no admission costs more than US$12 or so.

Ni Hao Ma?

by Arjaree

Beijing people speak Mandarin a bit different. They tend to emphasize on the "r " sound more than other parts of China. I like the way it sounds.

Anyway, learn a few Chinese words will help you to get around better. People in Beijing dont really speak English like in Shanghai. For someone who look kinda Chinese but cant speak or dont understand more than Ni Hao, like me, you should probably learn something like " I don't understand Chinese" -- Wo Bu Dong., for when someone come ask you for the direction since they think you look like a local, then you can reply to them. Or " I don't want" -- Bu Yao -- this is essential for when sales people approach you, just say this phrase and they will go away.

Get a phrasebook and learn a bit before you go.

Living on the edge :D

by M1rjam

Some of the local hostels in Beijing arrange visits to the original part of the Great Wall. It is quite a trip :D We were taken by a bus to a small village near the Great Wall, where a local guide took us up there and we walked and climbed on the orginal part of the wall. It was quite risky most of the time, since the wall is not repaired and in some places it is very badly damaged and you have to use your hands and feet to climb.
But it gives a huge adrenaline boost !

Buy book here!

by dhei about Wangfujing Street

ok, there's a big book shop in Wanfujing street. it's large and many in english. you can buy subject like chinese culture, politics, art, even english books (novels) are include. As long as I see, there are 2 big book shop here and all are located in the main street.

I guarantee, all are cheap enough :)

This is what we want at night...

by l_joo

This is what we want at night in Beijing. One thing to tell is, at night in Beijing, especially outside some of those beautiful hotels, bars or karaoke, you will see many young fashionable looking girls, ladies smiling to you and asking you to accompany them to have fun but surprisingly they don't come to me because I think I was wearing cheap and dirty clothes...haha. It doesn't matter because I don't like that and better be careful with them. One small kid about 5, chasing, pulling my jacket, my pants from one end of the road to the other end asking for money. The boy was ordered by his parent watching at the back. At last I gave him 5RMB and his mission completed and let me go.
