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!

Last night we were taken for dinner to a rather expensive restaurant, the X.E. Flavour Restaurant, by Dr Sun, Feng and Zhang. This was upstairs in a new building and we walked along several corridors all of which had private rooms on each side. We went into a large dining room where we were greeted by several staff.

Not being …
... of me ached, calves, back, arms, shoulders. I was so disappointed when they said they had stopped the service just this month.
So instead, on my return to the hotel at around 930, I ran a bath and then did some laundry before my much needed sleep.
Best thing- cheap and very delicious honest food twice a day every day!
Worst thing- the disgusting habit of hacking up and spitting. Truely the most disgusting sound.
Most beautiful- still the forbidden ...
Our final day in Beijing was to be a "Retail Therapy" day as D wanted to find some presents and maybe a memento or two to take away. We had been told that one of the best places for finding bargains was the Silk Market about a twenty minute taxi ride from our hotel. So off we went intending to be back early afternoon to take a bike ride on two of the ten million bicycles in Beijing, which by the way were not around in the numbers we were expecting to see.
