This week maybe we will post a lot of our experience while travel in overseas.I become excited after KDI posted about his trip to Istanbul. After Istanbul and Beijing, maybe we will post about Brisbane, Seoul and also Tokyo.We hope that our post will be a guide for those who want to travel overseas.If you want to go there by using the travel agent, you can get the price as low as RM150 for 4 days and 3 night.It is really true if you travel by group of 10 peoples and above.But if you go there by travel agent, you will need to go to the some shops which is a compulsory.There are Herbal Medicine Center, Tea House, Jade and Crystal Center, Burning Cream Centre, Fresh Water Pearl Showroom, Silk Store and Jewelry Shop.You also can go there by yourself without the travel agent, but what you need is a details map.For us, we use travel agent for 5 days and 3 days extended without travel agent.For the extra 3 days, we stayed at Wang Fu Jing street for RM 35 per night.Really cheap right?.So for KDI readers, we will post about Beijing transportation, car and road related pictures.
We manage to climb the Great Wall until the sixth tower succesfully.
Beijing is China’s second largest city after Shanghai, with more than 17 million people in Beijing’s area of jurisdiction. The city is divided into 16 urban and suburban districts and two rural counties;the city’s urban area has about 13 million residents.It is recognized as the political, educational, and cultural center of the People’s Republic of China.
Beijing is a major transportation hub, with dozens of railways, roads and motorways passing through the city. It is also the destination of many international flights arriving in China. Public transportation in Beijing can be said very efficient and that is maybe one of the factor many of their citizen prefer to travel by subway or underground train.Their subway is so efficient and millions of their citizen using it every day.
If in Malaysia we rarely hear “Hon” sounds from any car on the road, you can hear it everytime there.Your day will not complete if you didn’t hear that sound.The way they drive also slightly different.They drive right hand side to the front and driver is at the left side.
The subway’s first line opened in 1971, and the network now has 9 lines, 147 stations and 228 km of tracks in operation and delivers over 4 million rides per day.It is the oldest and busiest subway in mainland China, and the second longest after the Shanghai Metro. Since the newest line, Line 4, entered operation on September 28, 2009.
One of the best things for the Beijing Subway is its flat rate.A flat rate of RMB(¥) 2.00 with unlimited transfers applies to all lines except the Airport Express.In Malaysia, it is equal to RM1.It is so cheap because with only one ringgit we can travel around the Beijing.
From the picture above you can see the red lamp, but the lorry still move.That is one of the habit there that you will always see.But, their superb public transport will eliminate this habit.
This is the transport that we used to travel around the Beijing for 5 days.For the next 3 days we used Beijing Subway.
This is not a public transport.But it can be a transport on the hill that full of ice right?.It was a wonderful moment for us there.
You also can use taxi, bus or cycling as a practical alternatives as Beijing’s subway system still does not cover large parts of this sprawling city.For us, we used a bus from our hotel to go to the Beijing Zoo.Then for the last day we used a taxi from hotel to the airport.Most of the taxi here used Hyundai and also Volkswagen brand.
One of the amazing thing.We visited this Olytmpic Stadium twice..day and night.
