Hi everybody! Can you please advise some nice restaurants/cafes around Ariva West Beijing hotel? And also shopping malls to buy cloths or stores like h&m, mango, adidas, etc.

Thank you very much in advance!

Hi all,

I'm planning of moving to Beijing sometime next year to learn Chinese and would be highly grateful if you guys could give me some recommendation on where's the best place to do so. Everything on google contradicts whatever I find on another site so I'm pretty lost here right now

Most foreigners are in Wudaokou 五道口 area which is close to the language institute 北京语言学院.

I studied Chinese at Beijing Normal University (北京师范大学)for this Fall semester and I think the teachers there are really good. I made great progress just after 4 months.

If you want to improve your chinese, you can have some part-time jobs, and practice it.

Hi, I will be travelling Beijing for 3 weeks in the middle of May. My questions are:
1. Where is the most convenient n economy hostel to stay so that I can travel around Beijing by myself?
2. Where and when that I can meet up with Beijing Couchsurfers?

Antonio L'Inenarrabile , Beijing, CHN, about 2 months ago

best place to stay is my home :D ...we are on couchsurfing.com , not on hostelworld.com ...

I don't suggest Salitun to anyone new to Beijing, maybe it is more "foreign", it has lots of pubs and fancy restaurants, but you can find such area in almost all cities in the world. I would suggest you staying at the hostels in hutongs in Dongcheng district (e.g. near Lama Temple and Gulou area) and experience the real Beijing. There are lots of fun and interesting places for you to explore and great night life in the hutongs too.

Dear all!
Finally back to Beijing again, after being robbed, stolen and surviving from malaria in Africa. :D
Since right now I have quite ample time, I would love doing some reading. Does anybody know where I can buy some cheap secondhand English books (classical novels, sociology, travel, history) in Beijing? Many thanks! :) If you have some books to give away or to lend to me for a few days, I will be as glad as a jumpy rabbit. ;) :D
Many thanks! :) :D

You can also try Amazon.cn. I would suggest once you click in to review a book see if you can read the first few pages of the book, which they offer for some books, as well as checking the suggestions of other books that customers that bought that book also purchased. There are also some book fairs from time to time that I have heard about. If you provide me with your contact details I can let you know when I receive information about the next one.

Hello! I'm in Beijing now and would appreciate any restaurant recommendations. I'm currently staying by the Beijing Railway Station so anything not to far would be helpful. I had some beef noodles in Mr. Lees, but I'm sure there are much better and more "Beijing" choices available. Also any must try street foods?

Garfield He , Beijing, CHN, 2 months ago

you should try "大董烤鸭" address:东城区王府井大街301号东华金街购物中心6层(王府井书店对面) close to Wangfujing.

i think you can go to wangfujing snack street or qianmen street to look for some delicious foods. I like “都一处”( du yichu )shao-mai.
