Tips

  • Before you leave home, tell your banks you'll be in China; otherwise they may not allow credit card charges or ATM withdrawals.
  • Try small neighborhood restaurants for authentic food that hasn't been modified for Western tastes. If the restaurant is packed with locals, you can be sure the food is tasty and fairly priced.
  • A good phrase book is a must in Beijing. Try to get one that has the words in English, pinyin (Romanized words), and Chinese characters. When you bungle the pinyin pronunciation, you can point to the characters.
  • If you're in desperate need of someone who speaks English in Beijing, look for a young person wearing glasses. Chances are they're studying English in school, and their eyes have gone bad from studying so much.
  • Chinese young people will approach you wanting to practice their English. Some legitimately want to improve their English, but if they ask you to an art show or for a cup of tea, don't go. They're scammers. This happens a lot at Tian'anmen Square.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
