The first two nights, we are staying in Chinese Traditional Boutique hotel, the Red Capital Residence. It is very impressive since we walk into the main gate thru inside where is the Chinese style one floor house, 5 bed room surroundings in square. quiet, pieceful cover with one big tree. All rooms are special decoration with Chinese Boutique furnitures. We feel special because we stay in Chairman Mao Suite where Chairman Mao used to stay before. There are a lots of interesting books, about China all over the place. I guarantee for the travelers who loves reading will be enjoy them and won't want to leave the place. Big breakfast serve to your bed . Red Capital is located in the center of Beijing so it is easy to walk 2 minutes to the subway and it is very convenience to take taxi. We choosed to take taxii, which it starts from 10 RMB (1.5USD), with a couple of dollars the taxi can bring us to Tiananmen Square. We can spend one day to seeing Tiananmen Square, Olympic Village and the Summer Palace. Night life at Houhai lake are also great relax. A lots of bars and restaurant for your choices. The next day we went to Lama temple and leave to the Ranch in the afternoon with 2.30 shuttle.
From Red Capital Club, we took a Rickshaw from the Residence pass thru the small road in the village, it was cool! We enjoy it. The food at the Club are great, we had Mongolian beef, my husband keep saying “this is the best beef I had ever have in China while eating. The long bean with pumpkins is also highly recommend, it is a combination of sweet pumpkin with the salty garlic of long bean.
The shuttle tookd 1.5 hrs. from the Residence to the Ranch, the place where surrounding with mountains, water, trees, .... Inside the Rach area we can climb the Great wall ruin. Unfortunately, my husband got sick when we arrive so we only had a chance to have massage, and sauna. It is a good place to breath fresh air and away from busy town.
The staffs at Red Capital, Residence and Ranch are all nice smile, friendly and good services.
