Beijing, Beijing Province, China
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.

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 barter, unless in a proper shop. A great way to get the price you want is to show them the money you want to pay. Money talks

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.

Beijing, Beijing Province, China
Capital of China and host of 2008 olympics. It caters for english speaking tourists relatively well with most restaurants having English menus. Very cheap, but the rest of China is way cheaper, there is higher quality items and more variety and plenty to see and do. Most tours, especially the summer palace and Great Wall are very popular and all hostels and hotels will be able to book them for you.

While the old city can be nice, much of the newest areas are changing quite dramatically...
