Day 6: Beijing: Summer Palace, Panjiayuán Market, Beijing Hutongs - Night train from Beijing to Datong
After 9 in the morning, today we are taking the calmest day, we approach an ICBC that is near the hotel and we change some more money for these next days.
The change today is at 6.50. What a change a few years ago when I was almost 8 !! But it is what there is and we verify how true is the statement that traveling in this era with euros is 30% more expensive than a few months ago.
After these morning errands we go to the Donsi subway to go to Xiyuan, the subway stop that will leave us at the Beijing Summer Palace.
We arrived there at 11 in the morning and as soon as we left the subway station we already saw a shopping street where we already took a look thinking that it is not a bad place to eat when we leave and before we go to the next visit of the day.
We pay 15RMB per person, this time they accept the student card, if they had not been 60RMB and there we will see another of the most representative places in the city: Beijing Summer Palace.
A good option to learn more about the history of the Palace is to book this guided tour in Spanish that also includes the Temple of Heaven or this one that includes the Forbidden City.
