Things To Do Near Beijing Rail Station in Beijing

Unlike many Chinese mega cities, the railway station in Beijing is centrally located and you can access the entire city from this one hub thanks to the metro lines that connect it to the heart of Beijing.

Slightly north-west of the railway station lies the Forbidden City, and near that the famous Tiananmen Square where you'll also find the Mao Ze Dong Mausoleum. You could literally spend the entire day seeing these three sites near the Railway Station.

Less well known, the Qianmen Market street offers great trinket, T-shirt and gift shopping. This entire area offers so much in terms of history, culture, shopping, dining and nightlife that the area around the Beijing Railway Station is a decent place to find lodging and launch your whole Beijing adventure from.

You'll also find amazing shopping in the area at the Silk Market or at the aforementioned Qianmen Market Street. The Silk market is used to bargaining with foreigners, so bargain hard in order to get decent deals. Although there are many travelers on Qianman, you'll find they are easier to bargain with and prices are substantially cheaper.
