... for customs, Passports and sniffer dogs. The Mongolians seemed a lot more friendly.
Managed to sneak to a shop and stock up before the border with Cereal and Milk and a bottle of Vodka. I had to !. Once we were at the Mongolian check point the Vodka opened up and that was it. The rest is a Blur.
Vodka with apple juice in the heat on a train is not a good idea.

... at all, but just extensions of the main frame. The face was a faithful reproduction of a Rolex, but that was as close as this watch ever came to the real thing. But that’s fine with me. I really enjoyed the experience of knowingly buying my fake watch. Haggling can be fun.

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 ....
