TRANSPORT

METRO

Beijing boasts the oldest metro system (opened in 1969) in China. There are 17 lines running to all corners of the city. It is one of the busiest metro systems in the world with over 11 million passengers travelling on it each day.

BUS

The bus network in Beijing is extensive and extremely popular with the city’s residents as it is convenient and cheap. Journeys around the city start at 1RMB. Many buses running in the centre of the city offer free WiFi access.

TAXI

Taxis in China are generally cheaper than in other countries, providing the most comfortable way to travel and the fastest when there is no traffic jam. You can hail a taxi on the street or order one through various mobile apps.

FOOD

Beijing food is generally salty and a bit oily. The internationally-recognised Peking Duck is probably the most famous dish to come from the region. However, the city is also known for its wide variety of snack foods. We recommend trying Beijing pancakes, sugar-coated haws and Rolling Donkeys (glutinous rice balls). If you’re more adventurous with your food, try deep fried insects.

NIGHTLIFE

There are 3 main nightlife spots in Beijing: Sanlitun, Wudaokou and the Gulou/Houhai area with a variety of restaurants, bars and clubs to suit all tastes and budgets. If you’re looking for somewhere cheap and cheerful, Dada’s is a firm favourite with the city’s expats. For something more upmarket, why not head down to XIU with its stylish terrace giving unrivalled views over the city.

WEATHER

Summers in Beijing are generally pretty hot and dry, with occasional thunderstorm. Temperatures rarely drop below 30°C (104°F). Winters are freezing and you can expect average temperatures to be around -3°C, occasionally reaching as low as -15°C. To fend off the cold, bring plenty of warm layers and be ready to layer up as the outdoor and indoor temperatures can be hugely different.
