Beijing Tips

Airport- if you want to change money at the airport there are two change counters, one by the baggage claim before customs and one in the arrivals hall. the one by the baggage claim is better and charges less commission.
General- a good map of the city is highly recommended, the streets are large and distances are far walking. the metro is very good- before you exit look at the signs detailing which exit (a/b/c/d) is closest to where you want to go.
Miscellaneous- if you use a MAC and miss it you can go to the Novotel Hotel and use their free mac in the lobby.

Wangfujing Youth hostel- central location, new hostel, very clean, great showers, western toilets. highly recommended.
can be booked on hostelworld.com
