Beijing

Overview

Beijing (formerly Peking) derives its name from the Chinese characters for "Northern Capital". It is a three thousand year old city that has been the administrative seat of multiple dynasties and currently serves as the official capital of the People's Republic of China.

Of course, Beijing's formidable political history is only the tip of the iceberg: the city has always waltzed along the cutting edge between tradition and modernity. The historical sites seem to increase in significance each year, while hip new bars and discotheques materialize overnight to signal a shift in some hapless neighbourhood's fortunes.

To visit Beijing is to learn how grit and glory can coexist with wonky mascots and cute miniature electric rickshaws.

The Beijing Experience

You should start with a visit to Tiananmen Square. Take in the panoply of other Beijing landmarks - the Great Hall of the People, Qianmen Gate, the Palace Museum (formerly Forbidden City) - that surround the largest public square in the world.

You might also enjoy a visit to the National Stadium, nicknamed The Bird's Nest by locals for its uniquely chaotic latticework; and the Temple of Heaven, a gorgeous complex of giant shrines and gardens built by the Ming Dynasty in the 15th Century.

Of course, the monuments are only one aspect. You can try out Peking Opera, a uniquely Chinese artform with elaborate costumes and set design, acrobatic feats, and simplified plots that non-speakers can understand. The best opera houses are in Xuanwu District, which also features the city's most historic shops and street markets - some of which have been around for over five hundred years!

Finally, the Xicheng district in central Beijing is ideal for shopping and refreshments: Xidan is renowned for its abundance of gigantic shopping malls and cheap handicraft stalls at street level; while Houhai is a large manmade lake surrounded by eateries and bars. You can ask around for better options, but nothing will beat the overall experience of sitting quayside with a cold brew watching neon reflect off the water.
