As the capital of China, Beijing is well connected to every part of China via road links and as a part of China National Trunk Road Network. An elaborated five ring roads which appears more likely to rectangular shape rather than ring-shaped has been developed within Beijing throughout the history. Perhaps it is due to the status Beijing as an ancient city or the traditional culture of Chinese people, roads in Beijing are basically in one of the four compass directions. With the Forbidden City area as the geographical centre, the ring roads which successively surround Beijing have made up the Beijing major urban transportation. The calculation of ring roads is begun with 2nd ring road which is located within Beijing’s inner city center since the first ring road is not officially defined. The ubiquitous traffic jams in Beijing has long been a major concern for each and everyone in Beijing. Traffic in Beijing is always a headache especially during rush hour. Changan Street which is the main street connects between East and West part of Beijing, is one of the most congested area while travel in Beijing. Local buses are most common transportation method among Beijing, but this method is not recommended for those who are not able to understand basic communication in mandarin. Besides that, all taxis are metered and charged a standard starting fee and a per kilometers fee after first three kilometers. However, most taxi drivers are not English literate. So please get ready with addresses written in Mandarin.
