Topic From: Beijing Weather in October
I need to know the type of clothing to bring for middle-end of. October for Beijing. Are there laundry mars to wash clothes (self service) or others. Are there hotels moderately priced with a small refrigerator in them? Is it easy to use the subway system. Also what does RM mean (saw it listed reg money to take transit system) Thanks for any info. I am sure there will be more questions.
Based on the former data, the average temperature will be 10-20℃（50-68℉）, it will be cool. You could take some shirts and coats.
In some hotels, they will provide laundry service, the rate depends the kind of clothes. It costs about CNY10-20/US$1.6-3.3 for a piece.
There is a small refrigerator in some hotels such as 4 star or 5 star hotel. It depends on which hotel you are staying.
It is easy to take a subway in Beijing, here is their official website: http://www.ebeijing.gov.cn/feature_2/Subway_Tour/
I am not sure what RM is, I think it might RMB, which it is Chinese currency.
