Beijing

Beijing is the capital of China, its political and cultural center; a city with a thousand faces and moods, surprisingly combining the hectic pace of modern life with distant echoes of Western values without sacrificing any of its own traditions. In its more than 3,000-year history, this contradictory and enigmatic Asian metropolis has vanished from the map countless times and been rebuilt with greater and greater vigor. Faceless residential neighborhoods, skyscrapers piercing the clouds and dazzling in the night lighting, charming medieval hutongs - all architectural styles and eras can be found in modern Beijing. Experience the enchanting magic of great Asia, dissolving in the endless human flow of Beijing streets and plunging into the motley, noisy and incredibly attractive reality of one of the oldest capitals on the planet.
