Beijing Tour Guide:
Beijing Traffic and Plan Your Tour

The traffic in Beijing is something one should note before they begin their tour in Beijing.

The rush hours are usually from 7-9 in the morning and 5-7 in the evening. This is the basic rush hour, however there are part of Beijing that are constantly overwhelmed by traffic. These include the high tourist attractions such as the highway to the Great Walls, near and around the forbidden city and Tiananmen Square.

There are 5 completed rings with an additional 6th ring in construction. These ‘rings’ support the traffic in Beijing to get to your destination. The second ring closest to the center of Beijing and as you go further out of the city the number increases. Second ring and Third ring are usually the high traffic rings as they pass by major attraction and business points such as the lama temple, embassy district in Sanlitun and the world trade center in Guomao on the east side of the city.

Beijing used Olympics-time odd-even car restriction policy  in the month of July, August and September of 2008. After the Olympics, the return to Beijing's traffic- and smog-heavy status quo marked  the end of what may had been the world's largest pollution control experiment: a restriction on cars, factories and construction that lasted for two months and resulted in the clearest skies Beijing has seen in a decade and raised vehicle speeds 10 percent to 43 kph.

A car ban will however is being implemented for government-owned vehicles based on the last digit of their license plate number. Its unlikely it will be very effective, considering that officials often have access to a number of different cars: if one car isn't allowed on the roads, another is usually on hand.

Driving in Beijing is painful experience. Be prepared to sit in traffic during rush hours on your tour. Also if you take our shuttle service or private tours, this is something we cannot anticipate and the rush hours can change on a day by day bases.
