Beijing // Travel tips

While frequent sandstorms are common in September and October, this is still the best season to visit Beijing.

Bring summer clothing as the temperature ranges from 30 to 39 centigrade.

Bring your own meals to avoid awful food on the train to Beijing. An umbrella offers useful protection from the sun. Avoid buying processed food from the hawkers, it is ok to get it in big stores.

The currency used in Beijing is Chinese RenMinBi or RMB and 8 RMB equals 1 US dollar. Beware of false currency and beggars.

In taxis visitors should check for front seat belts or travel at the back as they may have some frightening experiences. Crossing the road can be equally alarming. Indulge in the art of bargaining while shopping.

Just wear a big smile on your face and bargain heavily as the initial price asked could be 500%252525 more than the real price. Don’t forget to carry a small calculator for immediate money conversions.
