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.

With my plan in place I then found out my Indian visa will take a minimum of 10 days to process, but could be longer. With only 12 days at that point until flying to Delhi, and needing to be in Beijing to process the visa, my plan became unstuck. So I had to catch the train to Beijing the following evening. That still left 1 day to see as much of the mountain as possible. So with ...
