Hi Beijing people,
We are looking at visiting Beijing for 5 days in September.
We have heard that Beijing is expensive - is this correct?
We live in London and are used to European prices when travelling.
We have stayed in Ibis hotels before and thought that the price for these hotels in Beijing is acceptable - £39 (390 CNY) per night - is that an ok price in Beijing?
We'd use public transport, with perhaps the exception of a guide/driver to the Wall.
I've also read a beers is anything from £5 (5 CNY) upwards - is food affordable?
Thanks for any thoughts in advance!
