Top Descriptions

Beijing, the heavily populated capital city of and the country’s centre of culture and politics, can be a mixed experience for both travellers and expatriates. If you’re at all into Chinese history and culture, then this city has so much on offer that you could easily spend a busy week here and not get remotely bored. With impressive sites within the city such as the , the and the , and the only a relatively short journey outside of the city, for many Beijing offers an archetypal Chinese experience. Public transportation is good, restaurants are abundant, and much of the city is low-rise with the winding alleyway hutongs affording some good opportunities for photography. However, many people find the hustle and bustle and smog of the capital to be a little overwhelming, and if you visit on a particularly polluted day then many of those famous attractions may well be hidden by a blanket of thick PM2.5. Nevertheless, whether you end up loving or hating the northern capital, there’s so much on offer in Beijing that it’s still worth visiting – if only to make up your own mind.
