Subways are one of the great conveniences of first-tier Chinese cities. If you're in Beijing or Shanghai, the subway is often your best transportation option. Of course, if you're not yet familiar with the subway system, you could find yourself on a train heading in the wrong direction. Learn the Chinese for how to ask if you're going the right way, and get back on the right track. (Don't worry; your pride will recover.)
