After a mediocre flight with Air Canada, we landed in Beijing in the early evening. Our first night was marked with exhaustion as we battled the fifteen-hour time change, forcing ourselves to stay awake until 10:00 PM local time. We stayed in a really cool hutong area, filled with traditional tiny homes, narrow alleyways, and smiling locals. Our …

Beijing Part 1: The Mental Head Slap

A travel blog entry by nomad143 on Nov 27, 2013


Beijing was amazing. However well I may have adjusted to living in Luoyang, it was an amazingly fresh breath of air to go to a giant city filled with culture, nightlife, different food, a subway system, amazing shopping, beautiful sights, Starbucks, and a noticeable lack of staring at my blatantly Caucasian face. We were in Beijing for five full …

Crunch time

Beijing what can I say. I sit here in a quiet bar and a man in front of me is crunching on fried insects, there is also a young lady on the other side of the room eating them. It seems when he stops she starts. I feel like there might be crickets in the room.
I loved Beihai Park and went there twice once at midday and once early in the morning …

    This was a great hostel. It was always clean, and there was always someone there to help us and answer any questions. The location is amazing. It's in an awesome area that is filled with restaurants, shops, and cafes. Our private double room was clean, well organized, and had its own bathroom. As it turns out, all the rooms, dormitory or private, have their own bathrooms. The hostel also includes a free breakfast at their cafe next door. The food there is great as well...try the burger! The staff was also great. Suggestions, help with anything, organizing shows and The Great Wall...they do it all.

    This place has friendly and helpful staff. The location is great, close to line 6 on subway but you can also walk to major tourist destinations such as the Forbidden City and the beautiful Beihai Park.

    Great place to stay. Very interesting location in Nanlougun with lots of interesting shops. You can hire bicycles and its the best way to travel around Beijing. Staff are very helpful and I had terrific communication with them before arriving as well.
