Re: about taxi price

Whatever the taxi fare is, if you are European looking, bu sure that they'll charge you four times the fare. Try to put on the taximeter yourself.

Re: about taxi price

Sorry to disagree with IP, but I would definitely suggest a taxi. Before you start the driver starts the meter and the ticket prints out the time.

The taxi fare to and from the airport is about 100CNY (you also need to pay for the toll gate - 10CNY). The trip takes about 45 minutes depending on the traffic. You need to have your destination written in Chinese characters as the taxi drivers don't speak another language.

This is the main issue with public transport in China. It is inexpensive but all the signs are in Chinese or by numbers so you need to know exactly where you want to go.

"Sorry to disagree with IP, but I would definitely suggest a taxi."

Didn't say that ibrahimshalsh shouldn't take a taxi, just wanted him to be prepared for what he might expect.

"Before you start the driver starts the meter and the ticket prints out the time."

Well, I have some various experiences of that!

Great Wall of China.

by Guantanamera

The Great Wall is truly amazing... It is situated out among the gorgeous scenery of the mountains... You cannot believe how huge it is and the way it turns and twists around... This photo illustrates the incredible steepness that it has at some places...!

Airport Departure Tax

by AC1

Most of us will always try to use up all the local currency before we leave the country in order not to have small change that become useless when return to home country.

Do not forget to put aside 90 RMB per head for the Airport Departure Tax which you have to pay in cash ONLY in the airport.

It will not be straight forward to do currency exchange (small amount) when you are at the airport.

Also, check out the bird and...

by bokononist

Also, check out the bird and fish market in Northwest Beijing on Xizhengmeng. It's a little hard to find but tell the cab driver you want to go to the Guanyuan markey or Niao shi and show him a picture. Good luck. That's where they sell all kinds of plants and animals, from crickets to rare breeds of cats (in China cats with one blue eye and one brown eye are especially treasured) and all the birds you'll see in the morning at Tai Chi. WARNING: Don't take pictures at this market, no matter how fantastic the sights are. I suspect some of the animals are illegally transported or some kind of illicit activity is going on. All I know is when I snapped a picture (w/o flash) and was spotted I was screamed at by everyone in the vicinity. You'll already stand out as a foreigner there so don't draw extra attention to yourself like that. That made them really mad.

Belgium Beer + Dutch People + Pizza + Bitter Ball

by vigi about The Hidden Tree

I stayed in Beijing for 5 days, visited this bar 2 times. Major reasons: besides they serve good Belgium beer (good price), this is also a place for local Dutch people to hang out (and my friend is Dutch). With a nice outdoor beer garden, they serve original wood-fired pizza and Bitter Balls, a traditional Dutch snack. I didn't try the bitter balls as it was sold out, but the pizza was lovely. This band in the picture was playing music on a Sat night. I didn't know what they're playing, sometimes sounds like english, sometimes sounds like mandarine, but was nice music though.
