      An advocate of public transportation, I happened to be in Beijing and decided to stray away from the common medium of taxi riding and try the metro. Everytime you’re in a new city, you should definitely try the metro system out, if it’s available.

      The metro in Beijing was extremely cheap, only


      3 Y for the two main lines.

      I did not happen to stray onto Line 13, the newest one, so I don’t know how much that one cost.

      It was paper tickets, not electronic, but it was simple enough, with the ticket taker taking the ticket, ripping it, and giving you back ...


      • the stub.

        The trains came very frequently, and upcoming stops were announced in the train in both English and Chinese, which was very helpful.

        Sometimes even in the cabin, there was an electronic map that showed the upcoming station flashing red.

        However, at times it proved very crowded which was slightly uncomfortable.

        Yet in a major city during rush hour, you expect a bit of crowding.

        Regardless, if you’re on a budget and can’t afford to take the taxi system across the city, the subway is a nice alternative for some of the sites.

        However, it cannot serve all your needs, as it is still very limited.
