Today we decided to return to Qianmen which we had visited briefly on Wednesday. This is the reconstructed area south of Tian'amen square which was opened in 2008 just in time for the Olympics.

Last night we were taken for dinner to a rather expensive restaurant, the X.E. Flavour Restaurant, by Dr Sun, Feng and Zhang.

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.
