Summer Palace
  • Summer Palace (颐和园 Yíhéyuán), (exit D, Beigongmen Station Line 4). 06:30-18:00(1 Apr-31 Oct). Extensive gardens and the ruins of palaces constructed by the Qing emperors. In 1860, foreign soldiers damaged much of what was then known as the "Garden of Clear Ripples", but the area would be rebuilt and renamed by the Empress Dowager Cixi, using funds intended for modernizing the Qing navy. Most visitors stay in the front hill area, but if you prefer quiet places, the west bank and back hill areas are good choices. There are some quiet and secret ruins, caves, and other fun stuff in the back hill area. You could easily take bus No. 690 or 808 from Tian'anmen Sq to the terminal station, the Summer Palace. The Bus 826 would bring you from Temple of Heaven to Summer Palace. Also, you can take the subway line 4 to Xiyuan Stn, from there it's a 10-min walk. ¥30/¥15, ¥10 one-way on boat.  edit

Built in the 18th and early 19th centuries, these gardens were home to the emperors and Qing court. After their 1860 destruction by British and French troops the gardens was not restored, and the ruins that can be seen today still serve as a reminder of the costs of imperialism. Bus 690 from Tian'anmen will also get you here. ¥10.  edit

  • Tsinghua University (清华大学). Tsinghua University is essentially a tiny city. Walls separate the university from the city outside, and most of the students, staffs and faculties live in the campus. The campus was part of the Old Summer Palace and there are lots of greens and a lake. In addition to the facilities of most other universities, there are grocery markets, banks, two post offices, one hospital, and a full affiliated hierarchy of kindergarten, elementary and middle school. All within a single campus. There's even a couple of coal power plants, which provide heat during the winter. Restaurant and dining halls provide food service range from less than 10 to hundreds yuan every meal. Most students speak English passably well, and there is a university history museum.

Located directly south from Peking University and Tsinghua University (and accessible from Line 4), this area is dubbed the "Silicon Valley of China." There are a number of large electronics malls that sell everything from phones to computer parts. When entering any of the large malls in Zhonguancun, you are likely to encounter aggressive salesmen who will follow you shouting the names of the brands they sell, and they may follow you across the floor, or even up several floors. Avoiding eye contact and wearing headphones usually sends a strong enough signal that you don't want to be bothered. Also, most of these characters hang out on the ground floors of their malls; if you enter a building from underground, you will generally avoid them. The best deals are almost never on the ground floor anyway. Pirated software and DVDs are also not hard to find here. Many of the shady characters outside the malls shouting 'DVD!' also sell pornography (illegal in China).The largest and most well-known malls include:  edit
