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.

I loved the Summer Palace, which was used by the emperors of the Qing Dynasty during the hot summer months. The Palace is in a park containing the large man-made Kunming Lake (now part ...
... without knowing what you're doing or with someone who knows what they're doing, you will get eaten alive! These market sellers eat clueless laowai like me for breakfast.
On the way back home, Fangfang and I recounted what had happened earlier. She told me the shopkeeper that grabbed me saw I was afraid, but she thought I was afraid of her high price, hence why she was desperately lowering her price as I escaped. At least now I have my blue boots!
... and not crowded so we can enjoy our climb leisurely (meaning we were very slow). The most difficult part of climbing was the unevenness of the steps. Coming down was even worst than going up until Ray figured out that we could do it easier by going backwards. We stopped at the Ming Tombs on the way back. Once a sacred place was messed up by all the coins and paper money Chinese tourists threw all over. I wish they would just send their donation directly to the ...
