As we got informed we had to catch the bus at Qianmen to go to Great Wall, but after we arrived at the place, we were searching like an hour for the bus asking ppl, and we've never found it. Then when we already got up, i asked the police man and he told us, its not the right place, we have to go to other part of the city, near Xizhimen. And we got there, but after another dozens of minutes when we were searching for the bus, the guys at the stop told us it's too late coz the bus919 goes only fro 6.00 to 10.00, and it was almost 11. :(((
Sadness! We got back to the railway station, to get to Tianjin, coz we wanted visit this city on the next day, but cos of bad luck we didnt at all. As we came to main station and tryed to get some info (again very difficult task - coz in Beijing u are not supposed to be informed - finally with some wierd luck we found a place when they told us the fast trains to Tianjin start at south station.

So again sadness :( coz it was too late and useless to go there at that time. In these conditions we decided to go to the Summer Palace. Of course it was not that easy, cos it was pretty far from the metro station and we didnt know which bus goes there, but ppl at the station helped us. We spend pretty much time there at the Summer Palace, it is really a huge area, with lake, some hills and plenty of buildings.
On the Way back we got lost again with wrong buses and nobody wanting to help with the info... looks like information is most forbidden thing in Beijing;)
