Hotel Kapok Beijing is a boutique hotel located near the Forbidden City. When you leave the hotel, turn left and go straight. It takes you about 10 minutes of walk to get to the East Gate of the Forbidden City. However, visitors are not allowed to get in the site through East Gate, visitors need to follow the path to the ticket office which is located at the main entrance of the Forbidden City. You will find that not only the location of the hotel is great, but the price and the service are great as well. The hotel room is very clean (really clean, I mean it), modern and comfortable. There are free drinks placed on the tea table to welcome visitors as well. Also, the staffs are quite helpful and friendly. They always wear a warm smile on the face. It cost only RMB$600 per night during Spring Festival.

It was interesting to see how hard it actually seemed, Justin was not as graceful as the locals, who made all of their movements look seamless.
We then went into a courtyard that was surrounded ...
... We sat in the lounge and read for a while, then, too tired to venture back out, ordered from our hostel's small dinner menu. We had beef curry with rice, pizza, and pasta.
The title is a quote from my mom. Before boarding the train, she said that if the one other person in our four-bed compartment was loud, we'd all just have to listen to our iPods to fall asleep. As it turned out, the other person, a Chinese man, was very quiet.
