How to get around Beijing

How to move around in Beijing:

The best way to get around Beijing is to walk whenever you can, and to use the metro or a bike for longer distances. Along the Smart Route we will explain you how to get to every visit. At the hotel they will provide you with a subway map but just in case you want to have it now, hereby you can download the official full map (pdf).

Taxis are extremely cheap compared to Europe, USA and Japan, though many taxi drivers will try and overcharge you. Always take official taxis with a meter or if not, negotiate the price beforehand, that is, if you can make yourself understood :-).
