Take a bicycle ride around Beijing at morning
You may come up with this idea of getting a bike to go out immediately when you first saw the bad traffic situation in Beijing.But I bet you never thought about taking a trip around in Beijing with a bike.In fact,Beijing,this enormous city,has a huge number of interesting corners. When you travel on foot or on public transit, you can miss a lot of the city.Moving around Beijing on bike is not dangerous at all,it may be a lot of fun instead.You can rent one for free from the government and if you don’t know where,200 yuan is enough to buy a new one,a simple one without many functions is enough,you can even resell it when you don’t need it any more.Many foreigners become addicted of going around the city on a bicycle.The beautiful sceneries exist everywhere:riding in a hutong when the sun starts falling and people come back home from work make you feel peaceful and riding in rush hours in the morning with the crowd makes you nervous because of the work press and hurry.
But always remember,there are some rules you can never break:
1.Traffic rules don't apply to vehicles with less than four wheels.You can go against traffic, run through traffic lights andhit pedestrians.Just keep in mind that other people will be doing this too.
2.While riding a bike gives you preference over pedestrians, you still have to watch out the motorcycles, cars, buses and other vehicles.
3.Watch your speed.As you may already see, most of people walk very slowly,especially those old ladies.
Hope you enjoy the experience of moving around on bicycle.
Visit the most famous universities
Chinese people have a special feeling about visting universities because we always consider a child who succeed in enteringa good university is a person who will be useful for both society and his family in the future.That’s to say,many parents bring their child to the most famous universities in Beijing to widen the horrizon and make a wish to be one of the top students here.There are so many people visiting universities everyday that even block the entrance.Among all of the universities in Beijing, I recommend Peking University which has Weiming park and an impressive pagoda and Tsinghua university.These two top universities in China are not very far from each other.To get to the Peking University,you can take subway line 4 and get off at the east gate of Peking University.
