We are arriving in Beijing on the 3rd May 2013
We have read that the 1st May extends into a 3 day holiday period.Does this mean that if we choose to transfer from airport to hotel by subway we would not have to contend with commuters on the 3rd May ? Would there be limited subway services on the day?
We have also read that The Bank of China closes for several days over this holiday period,which would obviously limit money exchange options for us.Is this also true?
With regards to Summer Palace,can anyone recommend a nice place for lunch near East Gate?
