Question: How can I be sure that you are a legitimate tour company?
Answer: BeijingTrip.com is a travel-related website, having reliable travel information for travelers visiting China.
Question: When is the best time to travel to Beijing?
Answer: Beijing is suitable for travel year-round but the best time to visit Beijing is from April to early November. It is worth noting that the city is very busy during the national holiday marking the Spring Festival that falls during January or February depending on the lunar cycle. Similarly the city is very crowded during the first few days of May and October, while during July and August the weather is very hot. For these reasons the city is probably best avoided at these times. Many people prefer to visit in March and April when it is very much cooler and not crowded. The average temperature at this time reaches approximately 15C by day falling to a low of around 5C at night.

Question: Is it safe to go out late in Beijing?
Answer: Beijing is a pretty safe place, but going out late is not a good idea, especially alone. Though serious crime against foreigners is rare, pick-pocketing and purse-snatching has increased in recent years. Like any where else, it is always wise to be cautious especially when you are in a crowded place.

Question: How can I buy train tickets in Beijing by myself?
Answer: There are two major passenger railway stations in Beijing, Beijing Railway Station and Beijing West Railway Station. They have ticket offices for foreigners in their international waiting rooms on the 1st floor. Passports need to be produced when booking or purchasing tickets.
The tickets are always sold 10 days in advance so you need to purchase early to be guaranteed seats. However, during peak travel seasons, such as May holiday (May 1st to May 3rd), National Day (Oct 1st to 7th) and during students' vacations (late June to early September and late January to early March), we suggest you book tickets from travel agencies or your hotel ticket booking center.
Please note that you should arrive at the railway station at least one hour before departure, because it is always very crowded.
