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.

... we actually took off. Everyone fell asleep and I kinda drifted in and out. I have never been on a plane with so much turbulence. Drifting in and out of sleep I seemed to awake when there was major turbulence. I ended up waking up to what seemed as the plane in a major decent from what looked like as high in the air. You could not see out the windows because of the clouds so I assumed the worst, that this was the end and we were going down. Never been more scared in my life, ...
... through a travel agency to have a van pick us up to drive us to the Great Wall, only to find out once we were in the van that this price was only if we were going to shops with them where we would shop and they get their commission. When we told them that we had no interest in shopping, the price for the van nearly tripled. They were pushing us to go and shop and the situation got confrontational. They were trying to make a ...
... Our weather was sunny and moderately hazy. The views were good but not as good as those rare crisp days. But the whole experience was breathtaking and I have a better sense of the scope of the wall having covered a long section.
Like any good hikes, the food afterwards tasted magnificent. I will certainly be sore in the morning but it was worth it. What a treat to get out and really see the wall without the ...
