Travelling to Beijing

About Beijing

The Forbidden City's red walls and golden roof tiles, labyrinthine lanes running through low-slung grey brick hutong neighborhoods, futuristic skyscrapers punctuating the horizon in all directions, broad avenues and the expanse of Tian'anmen Square, traffic jams and dust storms, ancient imperial gardens, bustling markets.... Beijing holds astonishing sights and countless adventures for the curious.

Steeped in the past even as it focuses with all its might on the future, Beijing is continuously emerging and re-emerging on the global stage, cementing its place as a bona fide world power after hosting the2008 Olympic Games. Since the Olympics, vast areas of the city have been transformed as new high-rise complexes displacing old hutong warrens, yet Old Beijing holds fast in surprising ways and places.

Beijing is at its best in late spring and autumn. Autumn is a particularly pleasant time to visit as the days are warm and the leaves of the many trees in the city turn glorious shades of red and gold.
