We had wandered around so late, that our connecting subway ride at Xizhimen had closed down for the night at 10pm! It was quite ridiculous that a massive city such as Beijing would begin closing down their subway system at 10PM on a Friday night. After wandering around near Xizhimen, we were able to hail a cab for ...
