at a lot of beijing subway stations you can see this blue metal container made of strong thick steel,it is for disposal of explosives and hazardous chemicals,once they are found,they will be put into the container and the lid will be fastened to make sure that nobody would get hurt.

beijing's metro card is very useful,you can use it taking buses,subway,taxi and buying things in a lot of stores,the uniform subway fare is 2 yuan (30 cents usd),the cheapest in china.

Now, Beijing has nearly 10 lines under construction
once completed, the transportation will be much more convenient
But during this period, the road situation around the subways that are being constructed will be boring!

The reason why the metro ticket in Beijing is the cheapest in China is because it has direct support from the central government, e.g., the tax contributed by other cities and provinces in China. In addition, the tax of most Chinese state own companies are counted into Beijing's GDP while actually most of the revenues and profits of these state own companies come from other provinces.

One of my friends just returned from Beijing last month and she didn't like Beijing that much, still lots of dirty places with whole bunch of rude people. Also the national bird net stadium and national opera are quite disappointed

those are baseless accusation,beijing's transportations are subsidized by the city finance,not from the central government.every city has their own problems and beijing is not an exception.but in terms of pro public and equality,beijing is the best among all chinese cities.

---------------------------
according to the latest report,13 new subway lines will be in operation by 2012,and near 10 new lines are under construction now in the city.
Shanghai will keep Beijing from achieving this goal.

Ignorant!
Do you know how many huge projects are under construction in Tianjin, Shenyang, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, etc.? Do you know how many cities in China are building big subway systems?
and here ,I wan to say ,in china ,at least more than 50% poor chinese we do not hope to have a luxury 2008 olympics game, but beijing is very cheeky to say all of chinese welcome this luxury game.
Not hard to see, you are lying! You lier!

I lier?????? you break wind, even you are an officer , I must tell the foreigners the truth, if you are chinese, pls go to a famouse chinese justice website tianya.cn to see how many people to welcome a luxury olympics??? , and how the people complain the beijing gov just put plenty of money to beijing and shanghai, these two cities are bloodsucker!!, come on , do not transfer the topic , no matter how many huge projects are under construction in the other cities , they just built them by their own finance!!!! not like beijing and shanghai these two shit only know to suck blood from other cities!!!! (except some very poor area, its right to help them to develop.)

actually right now in china most of the common people is still very poor, (if you are an officer ,then not including you), but the beijing and shanghai want to stack the millions of gold into their cities. then tell the foreigns to see how sucessful we are!!! you are lier!!!! you are blind to ignore the huge quantity people in china still waiting for money to support them. even we work hard we get less, but the beijing gov take out plenty of tax from us to enjoy their luxury , beijing and shanghai are not bloodsucker, then are what???? its funny , here you are pround beijing has the most luxury subway , but china is still poor (i mean most of places, except beijing and shanghai), the rich country people did not die when they use the economic subway but not luxury one!!!!!

First you should go to hell, coz your chinese. Your debate doesn't make sense. If without this enornomous projects, how these poor ppls can make money? How there can survived and make money to built their hometown.. I agree poor ppls still alot in China, but this is the process. It is not easy for 1.3 billion ppl to transform to middle class for 30years of reform.

Do you think foreign care what happen in China? There only care what project there can get in China.. Again create jobs..helping poor ppls
If you are Chinese you should admit your Country is successful, compare to others developing country.. "Man, made in China". everyone is using it. Poor ppls are always a major issues in China, India, Africa, Vietnam. How to solve it? Create jobs, Boost the economy.. Politic stability. Shanghai is a financial hub and beijing is the Capital. What do u expect? Beijing look shit, and shanghai look crap. Maybe is true if you are jobless there now. These 2 cities help China to attract foreigns to come, n FDI to others poor Cities n again create jobs. Thanks
