Overall Guide : Considering the historical past Beijing could give the impression to be an ancient city but living there you realize that it has much in common with all the other metropolis in the world; it is now a modern,... more fashionable and full of vitality city with skyscrapers, shopping centre but unfortunately also a lot of traffic. Also the cultural aspect of Beijing is close to ours, you find more and more entertainments from traditional performances as the Beijing opera to modern dances, concerts, pubs and clubs. Another sign of actuality and modernity is that Beijing has been selected as the city to host the Olympic Games in 2008. The climate in Beijing is continental and the annual average temperature is about 11,8°C. There is a long and cold winter, the temperature in January is about -4,8°C, the summer is long as well but hot, temperature reaches about 25,8°C. Spring and autumn are rather short and dry.

Overall Guide : I think we have a rough driving here in beijing and we don't give chance to our friends when it comes to giving one chance to pass through, it is important. And taxi drivers don't cover his or her mouths... more when it comes to coughing. And one last thing, we need to stop picking and choosing when it comes to passengers. Thanks ever so much.

Overall Guide : Visit the Great Wall and avoid the tourist places, eat duck in the best restaurants, get lost in the narrow streets of the old town before everything is demolished, spend a whole day in the "Forbidden City" and the Summer... more Palace, it's easily reached by subway.

Overall Guide : I LOVE Beijing and the people of China!!! We lived there for 1 year. You need to blend in with the people, forget that you want things your way, live with them and NOT in the District for foreigners. Eat... more what they eat and don't order boxes of food from your own country. Be humble at all times and have a thankful heart :)

Overall Guide : It's a pretty good place to live if you don't mind the pollution. If you are a foreigner it is a little hard to live here but the food, culture and people make up for it. Basically a good place... more to work but not the best place to retire. Also getting a working visa can be a major pain.

Overall Guide : I went to Beijing on my honeymoon. I went there in June (it's hot and humid). There's the Summer Palace, the Great Wall and much more. We wandered around in the evening either on foot or by taxi, it was... more very calm. You are treated in a very polite way in the hotels. It's a beautiful city.

Overall Guide : One has to know Chinese to be in Beijing. Otherwise a lot of time is wasted in getting information. Moreover there are no maps or routes available in English. Using bus service or subway is difficult due to these facts!

Overall Guide : Beijing is really a mega city and it's nice to live here. Caters for all according to one's budget. However, no quality control on all products; counterfeiting is too rampant. This gives bad reputation.

Overall Guide : There is no such a big city in the world which is safe and secure. The people are so disciplined and respect people and the law. At most of the places it is to the advantage of the people if... more they can speak some English, like they can write it.
