... of interesting museums around the Forbidden City area. If you like history and want to learn a bit more about the Forbidden City; a good movie to watch might be "The Last Emperor” (I don’t remember the rating) It will gives you a pretty good idea of what was going on during the era.
About an hour’s drive north of Beijing is the Great Wall. A private car will charge you over $100.00 to take you up there & back. ...
So I woke up early to go see the Temple of Heaven only to discover that the PM2.5 levels were over 300 and the PM10 levels were quite high as well. Looking out the window, the air quality was visibly awful. So I went back to sleep for a few hours deciding the Temple of Heaven would have to wait til tomorrow. In the afternoon I went to the National Museum, which was huge and somewhat overwhelming in the amount to see. One could easily spend ...

Soon we were off to meet Dragon Wang to collect our tickets for the acrobatics show in Chaoyang theatre. The show was absolutely superb and left all of us in awe of their talents taking about each of the different tricks they had performed.

TravelPod Member ReviewsJade Palace Hotel Beijing
We were on a Nexus tour so being situated in the business district on a very busy road, between the 3rd -4th ring roads was not a problem..but to some it could be rather isolated.. subway is a 2 minute walk with the downtown area taking 45 min. There is a Mcdonalds nearby and Walmart 15 mins by foot ,no external eateries.. hotel has several.
The lobby and piano bar are beautiful and great places to relax after a busy tour day..the bedroom / bathroom are very spacious, beds typically asian rock hard, buffet breakfast plentiful.
Rated 5 star but not quite ....
