beijing trip

hello fellow traveler!!!! we need your opinion or comments or suggestion on the things for clarification before we go on our trip to Beijing....... we want this trip to be different on the usual trip we've done cause since then were always on a package tour and it seems so boring and predictable like the inclusion of all the stores by which half of our time wer spent on store hopping...and i hate this thing!!!! so this time we want to do it our way....can we make it in Beijing?????

You mean you'd been there before? so why not? You can book all the excursions thru the hotel travel desk or do it the lonely planet way.

Plan ahead and use the same common sense you would use in your own home town.

Catch local transport. If you catch a bus going in one direction and get lost, catch the same bus number headed in the other direction.

It's that easy.

Metro same story.

Last resort catch a taxi back.

That hotel tour desk will be offering the same old tour you went on last time.

Until tourists start avoiding organised tours they will keep serving up the same commission based product.
