Being woken from an inflight sleep at 4am, for a breakfast at 5am tends to leave one with blurry eyes.. or was it the 12 hour flight and one crying baby that was to blame...mmm.That's the price we pay to "have a good time abroad".. Beijing airport was also rather blurry.. could hardly see the buildings never mind the mountains and anything else …
Our 13 hour flight went off without a hitch. I took advantage of the 200 movies on demand and watched 4 on the flight and still was bored! We landed at 1:05 pm, processed through customs and met up with Grace, our tour guide who was waiting with a sign at Arrivals. (After Argentina and all the planning that went into that, I have none of that …

We walked as far out as we could in one direction on the restored part (from there it's a lot of crumbly rocks and plant matter growing all over it) and then back in the other direction until it was ...

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 ....
