Finding the meeting points

In Brief: Information about finding the two places that we meet before departing for the hikes in Beijing.

For the hikes in Beijing, we have two main meeting points. The main meeting point is outside the Starbucks Coffee at the Metropark Lido Hotel. The other meeting point is near the Liangmaqiao subway station, on Line 10.

Taxi drivers know the hotel as Lìdū Fàndiàn. The Starbucks is located by the square at the south-east of the hotel complex: the Lìdū Guāngchǎng. Click here to view a printable/downloadable address card for the Metropark Lido Hotel.

The address of the hotel is 6 Jiǎngtái Lù. Parking is available and will cost about 60 RMB per day. There's a shed to lock up your bike.

By Public Bus

The closest major bus stop is Lìdū Fàndiàn Station. Search LiDuFanDian or 丽都店站 on www.bjbus.com.


We meet at the Starbucks Coffee at the hotel itself, not the other branch nearby the Jenny Wang’s shop.

Liangmaqiao Station, Subway Line 10

We meet close by to Exit B of the Liangmaqiao Station on Subway Line 10. There’s no room for the bus to wait right outside the exit, but after a short stroll towards the Third Ring Road you'll be in the right place.

By Taxi or Private Vehicle

Get yourself to the northeast corner of the big Yansha Bridge intersection. If the big sign of the Westin Hotel is directly opposite you and on the other side of the road you're in the right place. Click here to view a printable/downloadable address card for the subway area pickup.

By Public Bus

The closest major bus stop is either of the four Yansha Qiao stops, all around five minutes’ walk. Search YanShaQiao or 燕莎桥 on www.bjbus.com.


On some maps this station is named Liangmahe. The main landmark was a public toilet, which is in the process of being demolished. The bus will wait on the side of the road there, facing north, on the north-east corner of the intersection. The Kempinski Hotel and Lufthansa Center are on the south-east corner of the intersection. The Westin Hotel is on the north-west corner of the intersection. Click here to see a photo of the general area.
