Beijing Transport

There are plenty of taxis. Very few taxis driver speak English so the destination needs to be written in Chinese. Every taxi has a meter and prices do vary according to taxi type. A printed receipt is normally provided. To call a taxi call 6515 8604/05.

Bicycles can be rented and will take just over an hour to cycle from Tiananmen Square to the Summer Palace.

Look for the “Tickets" sign. A ticket will take you on the main two subway lines.  There are other lines but not really used by tourists. After buying your ticket proceed down the stairs to the platforms where you present your ticket. Just follow the subway map to your destination.

Difficult for the visitor to use as no English information is provided but they are cheap and people will help you.
