The Summer Palace was built by a Chinese Emperor who wanted a large garden in celebration for his mothers 60th birthday. It is surrounded by Kunming lake and was a very picturesque setting. When we got there we …

Kyllä täällä Pekingissä näkee päivittäisessä elämässä paljon pieniä erikoisuuksia, jotka pistää itselle silmään. Ensimmäisinä asioina taisin huomata pienten lasten vaipattomuuden. Tai siis ne haaruksista halkiolliset sortsit ja bodyt. Pikkulapset ovat vaatteissa siten, että takapuoli vilkkuu ja lasten käyttäminen luonnollisilla tarpeilla käy kätevä …

The final leg of our train would take us from Ulan Bator to Beijing, completing our Peckham to Peking overland extravaganza! The final train that would deliver us was the only Chinese train we have taken so far, all others being Russian and moody provodnistas aside, very pleasant! We boarded the train early in the morning to be greeted with an …

    This hostel is conveniently located near the forbidden city within a Beijing hutong. It's a small hostel with only 11 rooms facing the inner courtyard where you can relax and enjoy a 3 yuan JinJiang beer. The entire hostel, including rooms, have nice Chinese decorations which gives it a nice overall atmosphere.

    For 380 yuan we had a double room which is an okay price for Beijing. The hostel's food services can be improved, dumplings and breakfast weren't very tasty.

    After staying for 13 nights we were quite satisfied with this hostel and would recommend it to others.
