FIRST TIME CHINA MID-MARCH 2009!! MANY QUESTIONS!!

by coramper

hello!! me, my mom, and her boyfriend, (ages 47, 73, and 77 respectively) are headed to beijing for about a week from march 18-25. we have travelled extensively in western countries and latin america, as i work for a major airline and am able to travel basically for free. i have been itching to go to china since we started flying there, and am so excited it is finally going to happen!! some questions??? anyone have any knowledge or experiences with wangfujing int'l youth hostel? the locations seems excellent and the price is fantastic. any input?? also, sorry to seem squem-ish, but i am a bit concerned about the food, are there a large number of restaurants with an english menu, or is that the exception rather than the rule? many thanks!

Normally, in Beijing, the hostel room price is from 120 to 200RMB. Room is small but clean. Generally food is just so-so. But you can find good restaurants nearby. most of the restaurants have food picture on the menu.(if the restaurant doesn't have photo menu you'd better leave it. it must be an inferior.) Chinese homely food cost for each person is around 40~90RMB for lunch and supper. Chinese breakfirst is much simple and cheaper, about 10~20RMB.

There're many hostels with good location and "fantastic" prices here, not just that one. (I'm not familiar with that one, sorry.) I would suggest that you check out Downtown Backpackers (http://www.backpackingchina.com/nr/ourhostel.html), Far East IYH (http://www.fareastyh.com), Leo Hostel (http://www.leohostel.com) and City Central IYH (http://www.centralhostel.com) -- these are the most popular hostels in Beijing, well-located and they get good reviews.
Otherwise, you might want to pay a little more and get a triple room in a budget hotel. I stayed at CityTel Inn, 5-10 mins walk from Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City (and also Wangfujing pedestrian street), for around 300+ RMB for a triple. Let me know if you want to see my candid hotel photos, email me at ellyse99@yahoo.com and put "VirtualTourist" and your own username (eg coramper) in the subject line.
More and more restaurants are having English translations on their menu, but the quality of the translations can be hit-and-miss. Food courts and some restaurants have plastic or real models of what they serve, so you can pick and choose. Otherwise at restaurants, you could try pointing to what others are eating. At roadside stalls, point to what you want.

I knew one hostel near Wangfujing it is called Early Morning Sunshine or something like that. It has 4 floors and all bellow ground, so no window but the cheapest in that area. Most of the restaurant in Wangfujing has English menu, and there is McDonald restaurant near that hostel. It is convenience area to stay, you can walk to Tienanmen or take subway or bus.

Walking from Wangfujing to Tienanmen Square might be too long for elderly, so take subway or bus about 2 stops.

Travel Tips for Beijing

Portrait again....

by vickss

While I was planning to move out of the underpass another artist got hold of me.. actually after seeing the bad portrait being made by his colleague he started drawing my face even without asking me while his friend was doing the CONTRACTED work.
This other guy did a relatively commendable job, in quick time and though he didn't force me to buy it since it was a decent one I thought why not buy it also.. for just 20 odd yuan.. This guy was fun too... making V sign and acting like a hip-hop rap star.
Infact after I walked out of the underpass few Chinese boys followed me and in broken english told me that I should not have paid the first guy so much...I told them to take a chill pill as I am the worst bargainer in the world and it was over anyway....I don't think they understood me but just smiled and moved off.

Let the evil not come in

by Luchonda

In many musea in China you will see those double doors.The evil is always going straight through doors ! So a double one will protect the owner for evil.
This you will see on bridges in Shanghai - it is just a traditional believe !

Go to the end

by rafscab

Badaling Section of the Great Wall is a restored site for touristic purposes. But if you have the time, legs and lungs enough to walk for a while going up and downs the hills, you'll reach the end of the restored section and you'll find the "real" wall, ruins, almost untouched since the original constructors 1000 years ago.

Markets - Pearl Market and Silk Market

by oldmonk_92129

Be it any shop - Remember bargianing is expected in China. It is the norm for the shopkeeper to try to fleece you if you are a foreigner.
Always expected to be quoted between 4 and 5 times the price. Remember the price ranges - T shirts are between RMB 20 and rMB 40, backpacks in between RMB 50 and RMB 70, DVD's in between RMB 8 and 25 and shoes in between RMB 200 to RMB 250. You will be asked your 'final offer price' 6 or 7 times by the shop-keeper. Be prepared to haggle and be firm on your price. You can always walk away and go to the adjacent shop. T-shirts(size L in US is XXL in China)
Backpacks
DVD's and CD's
Shoes
Traditional arts if interested.

The main concentration of bars...

by coral0317

The main concentration of bars is in the area known as Sanlitun, which is nestled in the embassy district. It is basically made of two streets going north to south of the Goungti Beilu. Most of the bars are open during the day as restaurants, and then, depending on where u go, become blazing pits of drunken debauchery, quiet dens of social drinking or venues for amateur and semiprofessional rock or jazz bands.
