Getting Around in Beijing
The easiest means of getting around in Beijing is by taking one of the city's many taxis. The drivers are always happy to give advice to visitors. Visitors do not need to worry about not being able to get back to their hotel, because every hotel will offer its guests a business card written in Chinese and English that will inform the taxi drivers where you are staying and how to take you back there. Some visitors like to hire a driver for a day. It is much cheaper than using the meter, and isvery convenient.
There are many public bus lines which can take you to the every corner of Beijing. Taking the bus is one of the best and most convenient ways to get around the city. The cost of the bus depends on the distance traveled. Most busses do not have cash boxes, but attendants who take the money and can help visitors know when to exit the bus. The public buses make stops at all of the city's major sites and the commercial centers. There are some express busses which connect the major sights such as The Forbidden City, The Great Wall, and the Summer Palace.

The Beijing West Railway Station is located at Lian Huachi East Street and can be reached from the city center by bus. It is the one most commonly used by visitors because most of the trains that go to places outside the region begin at this station.
