Beijing transport

The scale of the city militates against taking bus number 11 - Chinese slang for walking - almost anywhere, and most of the main streets are so straight that going by foot soon gets tedious. The public transport system is extensive but somewhat over-subscribed; most visitors tire of the heaving buses pretty quickly and take rather more taxis than they'd planned. The metro is speedy but not extensive. Cycling is a good alternative, though, with plenty of rental outlets in the city.

Organized tours of the city and its outskirts offer a painless if expensive way of seeing all the sights quickly. CITS offers a wide variety of one- and two-day tour packages, which you can book from their offices or from the information desk in the...
