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.
Metropark Lido Hotel Starbucks
This is our main pickup point – we've been meeting here since 2001!
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.

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 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.

On some maps this station is named Liangmahe. The main landmark is a public toilet. 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.
