"Subway in Beijing" Subway Tip by Green_Frog

Subway, Beijing: 80 reviews and 86 photos


The Subway in Beijing is so easy to use - the machine are in English & Chinese. Just make sure you have plenty of coins as most do not take notes. Those that do tend to be 'out of order' or have a huge queue.

The subway is 3rmbs per trip per person so once you leave the station that's it the trip is over but if you transfer within the station and don't exit you still travel on that ticket - how awesome is that???

People will be pushing and shoving so be alert of your belongings - they will push not from behind but from the sides especially at the vending machines. No personal space here.

Check the last destination of the metro you're wanting to board so you get on the right line.
