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.

After spending an hour exchanging Dollars to Chinese Yuan (At the bank they need all your passport information and check the dollars ten times.) at the Bank of China, Helen, Amy, Ed, Oli and me took the same metro to our destinations. However one stop late I have realized that we took it the wrong direction and got off with Oli and Ed but it was too late for Helen and Amy. So we wave goodbye there.
