if you are going to visit the Forbidden city, i suggest you do there directly and visit other attractions on the way back.
take subway line 4 from Beijing South Railway station to Xuanwumen station,and line 2 to Qianmen station.
you may have a short visit to Qianmen street, and then walk to through the Tiananmen square to the Forbidden city.

It is about 15km from Beijing South Railway Station to the Marriott Courtyard hotel in the Chaoyang district. So it won't take much time if you take a taxi. However, There will may be some difficulty for you to get a taxi, considering your status. Just be patient, there are always some good men that are willing to help others. The taxi fee will be around CNY35 at most.

I'm going to Beijing in December and I was planning to go to Xian to visit the Terracotta Army.
How can I do this with a low cost? Which train I have to use? My hotel is at the Temple of Heaven. Could you give some advices?

Amanda :11/1/2011 7:09:35 PM

Hi Caio,
you can take an overnight train from Beijing to Xian. when you arrive at Xian Railway Station, you can take a tourism special bus No. 5 (360) to the Terracotta Army. you can still take the bus back to Xian city. i suggest you stay in Xian for one or two nights, so that you can visit the Xian City Wall, the Bell Tower and Drum Tower, Muslim Street, and the Big Wild Goose Pagoda.
if you don't want to stay in Xian, you can take an overnight train back to Beijing the same day you visit the Terracotta Army.
Train schedule from Beijing west railway station to Xian
i suggest you take T75, T7, Z19, or Z53.
train schedule from Xian to Beijing:
