Welcome to Beijing, China's dynamic capital

Its architectural contrast between its modern and ancient sites, as well as its world-renown street-food culture and dynamic nightlife will amuse anyone walking through it.

Shi's apartment

With all its contrasts and architectural curiosities, Beijing is a wondrous place to walk around. You'll find yourself travelling through different worlds by simply taking a walk, and that's the beauty of this city. Take it easy and lose yourself in the small alleys in Gulou, end up on high lanes with international stores, and wander through the mysterious Forbidden City.
