Preparing for Beijing: Tips & Hints

1. It is not common to leave a tip to service personnel in Beijing hotels. If you definitely want to please a maid, a pair of Yuan would be enough.
2. Bargaining is natural on the local markets. Do not hesitate to do this as sometimes it can bring the price down sufficiently. Of course, no bargaining is possible in stores. However, there is another advantage – you can easily exchange the defective product.

Thus, even a standard room of a budget hotel certainly has a private bathroom and all necessary equipment. Capsule hotels are increasingly popular in the city. However, those tourists, who expect to stay in Beijing for quite a long time, will not find them comfortable.
9. We also recommended checking the compatibility of appliances and electronics you plan to take with you before the trip. The voltage in Beijing is 220 V.
