Travel Tips from people who've been to Beijing Province
You gotta see the Forbidden City and venture out to see the Great Wall. It might be better now, but when I was there 5 years ago nobody spoke any English and everyone wanted to take pictures of us cause we looked so different. It can be a bit off putting at the start but you find out that the locals are really friendly. I recoomend finding an English speaking local tour guide and get them to introduce you to people. After that it's great!

Always carry a card with the name of your destination and name of your hotel written in Chinese to show taxi drivers. Almost none of them will speak English.

If you are a light-haired westerner, do not be surprised if Chinese locals come up asking to have a photo taken with you!  I am blonde and was asked to pose with families, children, infants, and individuals quite often.  I found that people wanted the most photos around the Tianamen Square area.
