Accommodation and eating

There’s adequate accommodation in both Beidao and Qincheng, but as there’s little to detain you in town after a visit to Maiji Shan, you might consider getting a late train out. About the only decent place to get a meal in Beidao is at the Tianhe restaurant – head south from the station to the first crossroads, then turn left and it’s on the corner. The staff are very friendly and the dishes great value for money. There’s another good, cheap restaurant in Qincheng, opposite the Jianxin hotel.
