Book your Hotels to Beijing 2008!!!

I went on a vacation during the weekend! Many things have happened since. One of the more important one is the following news!

Beijing 2008 Online Accommodation Booking Centre Announced
Posted 11:29 am ET (

The Beijing tourism administration said it will open an online accommodation booking centre on its website
http://www.bjta.gov.cn before March for visitors going to the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympic Games. The site will be linked to the official Beijing 2008 website, said Xiong Yumei, deputy director of the bureau.

The People’s Daily reports that the website will feature pictures of hotels and information in three languages – Chinese, English and French.

About 1,000 budget hotels providing 100,000 beds will be recommended on the site.

Xiong said, “in 2008 these budget hotels will be introduced in eight languages for the convenience of visitors”.

All the hotels must have service guides, signs, menus in Chinese and English, Internet connection in all rooms, and the ability for visitors to pay by credit card.

The tourism administration has named 134 star hotels in Beijing as “green hotels”. They have all passed the state standards which require the setting up of eco-friendly managerial systems and facilities, and the adoption of technology that conserves water, energy and reduces waste, reports People’s Daily.

About 500,000 international visitors are expected in Beijing during the Games and Xiong said she believed the city has the capacity to accommodate all the visitors.
