How to get around in Beijing Nov 13, 2009
Two fun-seeking American friends give you the lowdown on getting around in China’s capital city, Beijing.

The subway is very cheap and for 2rmb, you can use 8 different lines, but avoid traveling at 7-9am, or 5-7pm at week days.

Taxi can be a good option, from the airport to downtown area costs 100rmb(less than $20), and traveling within the city cost anywhere from $2 - $10. Remember though Beijing is so big, going to the suburb area would cost more...

To avoid traffic jam, and enjoy a slow paced glimpse of the city, hiring a bike is good option. for a 200-400rmb deposit, it cost 20rmb to hire it for a day.
