Useful website for transportation

by Cool-123

Hi all,

Any useful website for transportation especially for the train from Beijing to Nei Mongo Zi Zhiou, Mongolia (Ulaan Baatar), Cheng Du (Sichuan), Li Jiang, Shangri La and Lhasa (Tibet)?? I am trying to plan the route like this which starts from Beijing and ends in Lhasa. By the way, is there any travel blog about China in Cantonese?

Thanks

Edith

There's no train station in Zhongdian, you'll have to go there by bus.
It might be easier for us to help you to plan your route if you know which places you'll be going in Inner Mongolia.
If you go to Mongolia in the middle of the trip, you'll need to have a double-entry China visa.
In Cantonese??? Cantonese is a spoken form of Chinese, the written script is still Chinese. I don't know how a blog could be in Cantonese, unless it was spoken/recorded instead of written!

Cantonese speaking people sometimes use the old characters rather than the simplified (like Hong Kong) this may be what the question is about.

Thanks for the URL. I'm aware of what is said on the site, but still the characters themselves are referred to as "Chinese" characters, if I'm not wrong? I might ask my linguistics professor and get back to you on this.

It takes you too much times to get Lhasa from Beijing by train, but just 35hrs from Xi'an to Lhasa by train. just four cities (Beijing,Guangzhou,Shanghai and Chengdou has the direct train to Lhasa, but they are all air-conditioned train,and stopover in Xi'an every day in the morning around at 10:00.

Travel Tips for Beijing

Forbidden City - southern gate

by extrajoce

The Forbidden City is the number one attraction of Beijing, in my opinion. It is easy to visit palaces, and the Great Wall is more original, but this is where one can grasp what makes the Chinese civilisation unique: its history, its depth, its power, its refinement, but also what caused its downfall in this unbelievable replica of a world cut away from everything. From sheer size to fine detail, it has everything, and can only be compared to Rome, in the sense that it channeled the artistic talent of generations from a grand civilisation. Today, Mao's portrait on the main gate, the communist flag on royal roofs, are more symbols of China's nature, however much paradoxal it may appear at first.

visit the awesome Forbidden...

by Krystynn

visit the awesome Forbidden City! Here's the much-awaited answer (from the previous question):

The answer is 27 years and 4 months plus! This is because the Palace has 9,999 rooms. It was designed to have 9,999 rooms because the pronunciation in Mandarin echoes the auspicious 'forever, forever, forever, forever'.... :-)

Believe you me, the Chinese (no matter how westernized they appear to be, still very much believe in the ancient art of numbers bringing GOOD LUCK). For e.g., another 'hot' number in Chinese is the no. 8. Its literal translation means 'Good Luck'. The Chinese absolutely dislike the no. 4. It means 'die' which they consider a curse and terribly bad luck. So if a house has a no. 4 for its address, you can bet a million bucks a Chinese won't be living in it!

Bike rental at Houhai

by mke1963

Bikes can be rented from the shop (in photograph) at the eastern 'corner' of Houhai..just 100 metres round from the Silver Ingot Bridge.

Cost varies enormously, depending on the type of bike, but expect to pay upwards of RMB50 for one hour with RMB200 as a deposit.
Tandems and three-seaters are also available. Use a bike helmet! Be extremely careful if you go out beyond the alleyways around the Houhai area.

Ya Show

by mojo1980

This place is especially popular with foreigners, which is why owners tend to jack up the prices. Thumb of rule: bargain below 70%.

Also, at the food court on the top storey, a particular store sells delicious food on sticks (something like Malay Satay or Turkish Kebab)

A carnival of lights reflect off a lake at night.

by rsleisk about Houhai lake area

Houhai was a very elegant contrast to the seedy Sanlitun Bar district. There were many different bars and restaurants that lined the shores of the man made lake.

I went to one place...can't remember the name exactly "dragon something" anyway it had a spot light in the shape of a dragon that illuminated on the sidewalk. The place was interestingly decorated and there was good music with a small dance floor.

The area is a good spot for people watching and taking a stroll, although on my particular night there it was mysting that only added to the ambience. Styling and profiling.
