One of the most exciting cities in the world, Beijing is on the boil, welcoming and open for business 24/7. Eastern in flavour and western in style, if the distinction still applies, it's streets are full of youthfull activity.
As the political and cultural epicenter of a rapidly evolving China, you can’t help but feel the incredibly dynamic energy of change and growth pulsing day and night through Beijing.
Boasting one of the worlds most progressive economies, cutting edge architecture, luxurious shopping malls and hotels, and an overwhelming selection of restaurant and bars; Beijing is truly a world class city.
What makes the Beijing experience uniquely special however is bearing witness to this great development set against an incredibly rich cultural fabric and a history stretching back 300,000 – 500,000 years.
Modern buildings conceal traditional courtyards tucked away in small hutongs, people practicing tai chi in the parks, ancient architectural treasures that have seen the rise and fall of many a dynasty and exquisite yellow-tiled temples whose prayer flags and wind chimes move in the breeze created by the passing traffic.
