Where I stayed
sleepy inn hostel
Luckily after we got through the border, the Chinese attendant on the train told the French man in our cabin that he could have a room on his own. This meant we had the 4 berth cabin to our selves! Bargain! 1st class for the price of 2nd class!! This allowed us to veg out which was great.
We arrived in Beijing at 2pm on Tuesday, and luckily since the Olympics in 2008 the Chinese have made a real effect to put all the signs in English
The 2 Dutch chaps that we meet on the Train in Russia arranged for us all to meet up in Beijing last night. They took us to a great Korean Restaurant, which costs only £12 per head. This was well above our normal budget, but we needed a great meal after Russia and Mongolia.... ...especially as I got food poisoning in our last night in Mongolia.... Just what I wanted the night before a 30 hour train ride!! After taking a package of Immodium I managed to survive the journey!
Just spent a day looking around Beijing, but I will allow Dom to update the blog later in the week, with our feelings of sight seeing in Beijing.
Blog soon people xx
