Very cute, traditional chinese style hotel. If you are looking for something basic, this is the perfect place. Close to the subways, and the city center. The staff is friendly and helpful, and speak english quite well. The area is safe, with the police station at the end of the road. The only downside could be the restaurant across the street is noisy at night (however I never found it to be a problem). If you are sensitive to noise when trying to sleep, the back courtyard blocks most of the sound. This is a wonderful hotel, for a great price! Thanks to Bob and Jenny for everything!

Whilst the story which is told in English it wasn't particularly clear, however the scenes were fantastic and very reminiscent of the opening ceremony at the Beijing Olympics. It was a nice end to the evening after a traumatic start to the day and after a quick bite to eat we went home to bed.

... we made it right to the top where tourists could go no further! The sense of achievement was amazing and the views phenomenal! As one of the wonders of the world, up there, you could tell why! What an experience.
We certainly packed a lot into our short time in Beijing aswell as eating some delicious authentic Chinese food and watching a beautiful Kung Fu ...
I've come to realize that one of the most important people that I've met on this trip is my Chinese tutor. Yang laoshi, as I call him, is one of my biggest learning tools. Not only does he help me with my studies but the conversations we have give me great insight on what its like to be a Chinese person.
