hi.welcome to visit china .the climate in Beijing is of the continental type, with cold and dry winters, due to the Siberian air massses that move southward across the Mongolian Plateau. The summers are hot owing to warm and humid monsoon winds from the southeast bringing Beijing most of its annual precipitation. January is the coldest month and July is the warmest. Winter usually begins towards the end of October. The summer months, June to August, are wet and hot with about 40% of the annual precipitation.
have good trip.

(Alternatively, I will book after i reach beijing) A place beside the Tiananmen and some tourist spot will be a good... I will be there for Cristmas.. Tired of work and need a breath of cold air. ;) Oh ya. Where and how i can spent the Christmas in Beijing.?

I stayed HERE. It was a decent hotel - nothing to fancy but clean and had a great location.

2 minutes walk had you in the centre of things - Wangfujing Street was so close, walk to the bottom of that and you will find Tianamen Square and the Mao Mausoleum.

The Forbidden City is about a 10 minute walk - from the hotel. You would need to get a bus out to the Temple of Heaven, and a mixture of taxi, bus and train out to the Summer Palace.

The silk market is great for bartering - even if you are not buying its fun just be prepared to be dragged in and if you dont want to buy be firm, but the stall sellers take it with good grace and are always smiling!

You have to take a day trip to the Great Wall - there are various areas you could visit Baadling is the most toursity site, but there is also Simaitai and Mutianyu.

Although lm not sure of the weather in December - lm thinking cold so maybe not so good for many out door activities such as Summer Palace etc.

I'd like to recommend some hostels to you: Hutong Inn´╝îCitycourt Inn & PekingUni International Youth Hostel.

I stayed at the PekingUni Hostel. It was pretty nice. Clean and very cheap (I think it was about 8 dollars a night), but it is in the far northwest end of the city. And the local subway system is pretty small for a city of that size. I'd reccomend a hostel or hotel in the centre of the city.
