It's dirty, traffic is heavy and not a lot of English speaking people there. I spent a few weeks there for work during the winter at a point where they set a world record for air pollution. It's easy to get around by cabs and subway. Some good sites in Beijing were the Forbidden City or the Temple o...

Exchange a little money in the US before you go, then use your bank card for transactions and ATM's. You will probably get a better rate that way and depending on your bank, you may not even pay any fees.
Be sure to notify your bank that you will be travelling or they will freeze your card....
