When you’re traveling, either for work or pleasure, you’re lucky if you’ve learned a few polite phrases in the local language. Most of the time, you’re forced to get by on gestures. In many countries, you can learn to recognize the names of streets or foods, even if you can’t pronounce them – but when you’re traveling in a place that has a completely different alphabet than the one you’re used to, you become a functional illiterate. Such is the case for most of us when we visit China, which is why it’s always good to know where the U.S. Embassy in Beijing is located.
Now, it’s not a given that you’ll need to visit the embassy during your Beijing trip, and we genuinely hope you don’t – but if you run into any problems while you’re in Beijing, it’s nice to know they’re available should you need them.
Here’s the information you’ll need to contact or get to the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, China.
