TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Ministry of Education Hotel Beijing
Provided by the Ministry of Education as I am on a teacher exchange program, so not chosen myself. Location is brilliant as it is right next to AFS's offices (part of the MOE), and just along from Tiananmen Square.
The staff are really helpful when I have a couple of issues. It's a bitold-fashioned decor wise, but facilities are fine, with broadband, and most importantly a good, big, hard, bed and a good, hot shower.

... the right spots. This was seconded by a more serious marching group of Chinese who knew, "Stay in you room."
Then it was time to change the bogies. Chinese trains are on a different gauge than Russian and Mongolian trains. No problem, just jack up each car a couple of meters and swap out the wheels. This took hours and since it was about one in the morning we went to sleep even though we were rather jacked up.
We awoke to the sharp ...
... managing the workers as well. It is estimated that millions of people worked on the wall over the course of over 1000 years. Some scientists think that up to 1 million people died while building the wall. People building the wall were not treated very well. Many people were just buried under the ...
... used. The stadium is quite cool looking from the outside. The grounds of the Olympic green are huge. One large concrete space, which is still full of people - and souvenir sellers chasing you down the path! Just across the road from the birds nest is the Water cube - with an outer appearance of bubbles. Today is a really misty day, so the buildings are hardly visible through all the grey cloud! A couple of metro changes later, I am at the most ornate temple in all of the city. ...
