The Swissotel is comfortable though a little shabby in places (especially the carpets) The room was very comfortable with all mod cons though no milk for coffee. It is situated well, especially as it is right next to the Dongsishitao underground station which made it very easy to get around Beijing by subway. It is only 2 yuan a ride. We got a local discount but had no complaints about service. Breakfasts are huge. We bought one Swiss breakfast each morning which was more than enough for two people!

We headed north toward the portion of the Great Wall that Feng Li had picked for us to hike. She said that this was not as crowded as others. We had a great lunch and headed for the Wall. We took a ski lift up to the Wall. Many had hoped to walk it but we found out that it was about a 2 hour walk up (Cameron and Sharon could have done it in ...

The next day Gavin, Dee and I headed out to the Summer Palace, a short bus ride followed
by a 40 minute metro ride. The metro is incredibly civilised with advertising everywhere, they even project images on the tunnels walls from the travel. The signs are also in English with a moving lightboard to show where we were.
The weather was quite cold at the Summer Palace and after 3 hours of wandering ...
