Getting around in Beijing

There are lots of bikes, mopeds and scooters in Beijing. Not as many as there used to be I am told.

I saw this orange scooter with pandas on it outside the Olympic Green.

Domo insisted on trying out this moped we saw. Not quite his size.

I like the Hello Kitty mudflap on this scooter. I wonder what the sign above it says?

I am taking oodles of pictures here in Beijing. I posted some tips for taking travel pictures over on 1000 Words Blog so be sure to take a look and let me know what you think there.

And did you know Kodak is on Flickr? Our newest digital picture frame can display your images from Flickr so we started a photostream there. Check it out and add us as a contact if you like.


  1. The sign read "don't honk." (lit. don't push/press the horn.) Do people honk a bunch on scooters?

    I heard there are Hello Kitty and other Sanrio character editions of scooters there as well. I'd go crazy if I see them.

  2. It's so exciting to be in Beijing now! Did you take any pictures of the food you ate? Pls do share if you did! :)


  3. I don't remember if I have commented before but I love your blog. Anyway... I saw this today and thought of you. I think you'll like it and they even have the cylists :-)

  4. yiching - thank you so much! I have only seen the Tare Panda scooter so far.

    Syd - I only got a picture of the first night I had Peking Duck. I will try and take more pics!

    Lori - thanks for the link, those are so cool!

  5. I think the sign reads "I like pork fried rice"
