What’s the chicest way to travel? 最好的交通方式？
Due the irrational re-construction, Beijing is not a city for bicycle anymore. You have to take a car to travel in the city. The air is quite polluted and it’s not good for driving. Unless in the very very central Beijing, you may try ride a bike. If outside of the 3rd ring road, then you should either take a car or subway.
