Where are the new TV Tower and the really nice new hotel that burned down in relation to Wangfujing? I was in Beijing in 2002 and stayed at the Peninsula, and none of those buildings existed at the time.
yea china, especially beijing has been changing at a phenomenal pace.

its here:



I can't really remember how long it takes to get there, but considering beijings traffic, it would take a bit longer than it looks (you can see the cctv tower area and the newly built world trade centre from the forbidden city!)
