Tien An Men sq.....I shoot that picture when I was cycling around
I think the city must have changed very dramatically for the Olympic games as getting around Bejing for a foreign is very easy. I spent there about 9 days and I saw a lot - beginning with The Forbidden City, The Temple of Heaven, through Tian An Men square, various parks, Olympic stadium, a Silk market (to describe bargaining at the market - it is another story), an antiques market etc etc. I didn't miss to see The Great Wall of China or an Acrobatic Show which was,by the way, spectacular...I think you can easily spend there two weeks and not get bored. I also met few Chinesse people who were very kind to me, wanted to practice their English (I don't mind as I will learn something about Chinesse culture in return) and one of them offered to teach me Chinesse language..... One of few things I didn't like wasvery high pollution and the second one doesn't relate to the city itself but to foreigners I met in hostels. Many of them seem to lack the traveller's spirit and behave as if they owned the whole Beijing....I suppose this is a disadvantage of a big touristy spot like Beijing so I think one has to go to a less touristy place to meet real adventure travellers :-)...I already have some tips :-)

Everyone travels different..... sometimes we cringe if someone borish.... and we are always happy if it isn't an American as it reflects on us.... But it's good to be nice to everyone as we are their guest!
