Images Of Beijing

China's economical, political and commercial centre is a big, brash, busy city. It is different to many other Asian cities in that tourism doesn't overrun its heart and soul. It is far less commercialised than its counterparts and it seems at even at the city's best-known landmarks the number of locals outweighs the tourists. It is also a city steeped in history and has been the Chinese capital since 1421.

    great

    This was a great option to explore Beijing . It was a very walkable location and Beijing has a really happening night life. Its close to the bus line and subway line , walkable to the Tiananmen Square . The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I would only suggest more information about things to do in Beijing (other than the Tiananmen Square), places to eat, where to find live music.
