Beijing

The city of Beijing has long captured Western imagination as an exotic hub of ancient, historical Chinese civilization, full of palaces, temples and traditional culture. Modern Beijing, however, has been re-imagined.

With a glittering skyline that grows taller by the minute, the new Chinese capital is one of the most exciting and fast-paced destinations in the world.

It’s a city entirely in a league of its own, where visitors can experience the old hutong (traditional alleyways) and courtyard houses alongside the new commercial flurry of luxury shopping and fine dining. In Beijing, antiquity and modernity go handin- hand, creating the fresh, original dialog that defines this emergent metropolis. From the Forbidden City and the Peking Opera to the Bird’s Nest Olympic Stadium and the budding contemporary art scene, Beijing is the epicenter of Chinese culture and development, both old and new. To visit its incredible sights, thrilling events and spectacular restaurants is to experience first-hand the remarkable advancement of the country — and have a lot of fun along the way.
