Train at 7.15am on the 27th bound for Beijing. The ride to the border very much the same landscape as the Gobi trip. Wide open spaces, camels, goats, horses and gurs - not so many though. I got to the Mongolia/ Chinese border around nine in the evening. Border formalities in Mongolia, then again 20km on in China. All very easy. In both cases you …

Day 1 - Beijing

Arriving in Beijing was a big relief. We had killed India, or probably India had killed us off. I thought Beijing airport was going to be one big fat palaver of a task to get through, but it wasn't half as bad as I thought it was going to be. The only pain in the ass was going through heat/body temperature check points, yes really! They check body …

Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City

I think we must have walked about 10-15kms in four hours today. Back in the hotel now with a pair of stinging feet, but worth the walk to experience the wacky Chinese culture first hand!    After a glorious Maccy Ds breakfast, we took off through the narrow streets towards Tiananmen Square in the pouring rain. A two dollar umbrella and 50 …

    First impressions - not bad at all especially for a 2* hotel. Wifi is fantastic, get it all around the hotel. But the hotel is freezing, and apparently the hotel has no heating? What the hell!
    The rooms are all clean, tidy, comfortable beds with extra plush pillows.

    A part of the hotel is used as hostel. Rooms are in the basement and beds are clean. Kitchen very primitive and Wifi is not operating in rooms.

    Really standard place, kinda cheap considering its location (which is a big plus!) but standard in every other way. Pricey bar and entertainment and kinda nonchalant staff is a minus. However: This place is for people who need a place to sleep, not to live large in. You get what you pay for: A shower, a bed and wifi. The rest of your entertainment, food and shopping needs is easily fufilled just outside the door in the hutong. FYI: Be on the lookout for standardized cheap scams by the hostel such as having to pay a mindblowing 60 Yuan because you got the bedsheets dirty and they have to clean it or other stuff like that. Keep a low profile and leave everything the way you found it and you will be fine. Might seem intimidating and cold, but things like that are typical and its just a place to stay, nothing more, nothing less.

    Far East international youth hostel trip

    Never have enough good things to say for the Far East International Youth Hostel. Despite the name being quite a mouthful i'd recommend it for any would be traveller. The service was wonderful, organising trips to the great wall for our group. They even lent us some spending money. There's a bar downstairs which has pool and a library. You can even take a book if you donate one as well. The rooms are clean if a little cramped. And the breakfast service was superb. Its location is also excellent, located amongst one of the many hutongs. The only criticism would be that the bar closed at twelve. Rats.

    We shared a 6 bunk bed room between the four of us. Plenty of room and clean. Bathroom facilities were shared. There was a nice breakfast room with Continental breakfasts as well as cooked breakfasts. Internet room was very handy to research our trips and tours during our stay. The staff were super friendly and helpful.
