    most places do not accept visa except for major cities and big shopping centers.

    be very careful of pick pockets, they are experts.

    Actually no need visa if you go for less than 14 days... but I guess you've settled your visa issues liao right? If you need to make, then go to China embassy in tanglin before noon... pay $50 more to get it the same day.

    Spring weather is very changeable. Currently Beijing is in a cold spell, so you might want to pack warmer clothes.

    I just went to Beijing 1 week ago. It was beginning to get dusty, so if you're going there, you must bring a few masks.

    Beijing is relatively safe, except for the public transport, which is reliable but beware of pickpockets. It's out of the cold spell, into the sandstorm mode. Ranging between 8 degrees in the early mornings to 20 degrees midday. Midnight was around 6 degrees. Not very cold if you're wearing 2-3 layers. 1st layer: t-shirt. 2nd layer: thin jacket. 3rd layer: Windbreaker. Sometimes it was possible to walk around with t-shirt.

    If your hotel is rated 3-4 stars, bring toothpaste, soap, shampoo with you. (Optional: Hairdryers) 2 out of 3 of the 4 stars I stayed in had none. Must bring moisturisers and lip balm.

    Make sure you've informed Mindef about your departure. Do it through the internet.
