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.
