Despite the comprehensive public transport network and infinite number of taxis and private hire cars in Beijing, there comes a point when having your own car is just the best option-grocery shopping, for instance. Nobody enjoys lugging their "bags for life" onto a public bus after the weekly shop.

But sometimes it's just nice to do it in person, caressing the fresh produce and driving the trolley up and down the aisles. Besides, when it comes to picking up the kids from school-the car wins every time.
