Be careful with the city cab drivers, they are extremely aggressive to non-beijingers. Take subways if it's available.

Although Beijing has many fine restaurants, if you're craving Western food, head to Paul's Steak and Egg Diner, where you'll find many foods that are unavailable elsewhere. Biscuits, grits, good burgers and Mountain Dew are all on the menu. It's located on Xiu Shui Nan Jie behind the Friendship Store, direcly across from the Slovakian Embassy and 1 block from the US Embassy. ( Also, don't forget to try the snack streets. My favorite is located on XiDan very close to the Xinhua Book Store (English language books in the basement). The fare on the snack streets can be a little exotic, but if fried scorpions on a stick aren't for you, there are plenty of other things to sample. If you're there when strawberries are in season, definitely give the candied berries a try!

Beijing is my home town and I can say there is no better city in China or the world. The 2008 Olympic games will show the city good things for all to see. It is a city of many golden and audacious buildings and Beijing people are the frendilest you will meet in China, even although you are in the capital of China.
