    A Beijing getaway !!

    Beijing is a really nice city, quite modern ( public transport...) but in a way also traditional with the forbidden city and other monuments. We can get around pretty easily, a lot of english around the touristic attractions so it's very convenient for foreigners, however it's better to speak some mandarin to navigate the city more easily (restaurants, subway, asking for directions, bargaining...)

    Insider Tip:The menus in restaurants are not always in english, but sometimes you can find some pictures.

    Beijing is a city of China,not good to travel

    The weather in Beijing is not good.The traffic is terrible now.So many food of North China you can find here.The only thing you need go is the Great Wall.

China: Itinerary

Asian cities, and particularly Asian capitals, are wonderfully fascinating. The continent’s love affair with technology is evident in every city you go to, yet they all manage to maintain many of the characteristics which make them some of the most historical cities on the planet. Beijing is no different.
