Electric Scooter in Beijng: Two Months on…
Electric Scooter - I’ve been an owner for less than two months now and for the most part, it’s been a great experience and I would highly recommend everyone to get one. Here are some good reasons to buy an electric scooter if you’re thinking of joining the e-scooter revolution.
Unfortunately, I’ve recently been the unlucky victim of theft when my electric scooter batteries were stolen while it was parked outside my work. Nothing more annoying and frustrating after a hard day in the office to find your batteries for your scooter are gone.

Top 10 Reasons to Buy an Electric Scooter
I have recently taken the plough and got myself an electric scooter to avoid my current daily commute in Beijing, which was starting to annoy me due to the sheer number of people that use the bus and subways during the weekdays. Electric scooters (e-scooters) and electric bikes (e-bikes) are pretty common in Beijing because they are reasonably cheap to buy and maintain. And with so many cars in the city of Beijing, having an e-scooter or e-bike to waive in and out of traffic makes sense. Here are top ten reasons to buy an electric scooter or electric bike:
Daily commute in Beijing – hate it!
My daily commute in Beijing on the weekdays involves the following routine:
- 20-30 minute bus journey that takes me straight to my work place in the mornings
- 30 minute subway in the evening to my apartment in the evenings
So why do I use two different transportation links for the morning and evening Beijing commute?
My main mode of getting around Beijing is subway, bus, taxi or walking. Using the subway in Beijing is pretty good and dare I say, better than London subway as it’s more modern but London has more lines so you can pretty much get anyway in London. Whereas in Beijing, the exits are more scattered so you have to do a lot of walking to get where you want to go. One thing I do hate about subway is people don’t you get off first. I mean dude, how you gonna get on if you don’t let us off first?! fail!
