Our itinerary for today was to visit Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Summer Palace with a boat ride on Lake Kunming, and finally, a Pearl Market (not looking forward to this stop...hope my wallet survives). As we drove to Tiananmen Square, Jeff politely informed us that today would be the most strenuous of days for us. Is he nuts; the first day the most challenging. We have been laying around for the past five days ...
... rejected, after the 10th time we put it in we realised that in big English letters it said only 5 or 10 yuan notes were accepted. To make things worse we then bought 10 metro tickets so that we could use them over the next few days, somehow we missed the big English letters saying that you could only use them on the day of purchase, so we headed over to customer service with red faces to return them and get our money back. The customer service person was very friendly and ...
... fresh from our trip to Hangzhou's West Lake the previous week, being at the Summer Palace's Kunming Lake felt a bit eating some nice bacon when you've just had a delicious steak.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Kapok Beijing
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.
