Sanlitun is a good area to kick back and relax whilst visiting Beijing and there are some pretty decent bars in the area. This is also the area you can watch a Chinese football game at the Workers Stadium or catch a DJ in the...More

I visited the area during the evening. It is a disappointing if you're not interested in shopping (all luxuries brands have stores here). During the evening they're very few restaurants that are open, and the main street hosts several sleazy bars which remind red light...More

Walking in from line 10 - Tuanjiehu subway station will give you a feeling that you are probably walking the wrong way as you will pass by a Norwegian Embassy and then walk within the compound of an Army Hospital. Lots of roadworks enroute. High-end...More

SanLiTun Bar Street has changed since I first visited in pre-Olympics in 2007, the strip of seedy bars and hawkers is now more refined. As this street is being ‘refined’ you will still have the old hawker and see the pile dancing but you can...More

Has lots of options from seedy to family friendly all types of music some of it live but it all lacked character or a sense of being felt like any other metro downtown area was a let down as an attraction overall

a large variety of restaurants and bars (some with pole dancers, but mostly with life music). nice area and good for a walk. downside: it could be anywhere in the world in any big city, and therefore lacks a bit soul.

When you order you must pay directly before the food comes. I order beef salad but got chicken. They didn’t change. I don’t go again to this bar

Hey guys and gals! So a friend and I are travelling to China in July for a touch under two weeks (as something of a bachelor party trip for myself). Our first stop is in Beijing, where we'll be from Monday July 3rd to Friday July 7th - flying down to Xi'an around lunch time on the 7th. I used to live in China, but for my friend it's his first time. We've worked out a bit of an itinerary for Beijing so far, but I'm just looking for some thoughts and feedback should anyone have any.

You can do more each day. Depends on your stamina. Have a list of options and decide on that day o you are not too tired if you want to do more. Olympic park is a bit of a waste of time. Do not go to the Silk market after the Temple of Heaven. instead go to the Pearl market just across the street of the east gate of the Temple. Same merchandise and sales girls are less annoying. Consider adding the "must-see"places: Jingshan, drum tower and Houhai area on day 1 Lama Temple on day 2 ...More
