Living in Beijing is nothing like you would imagine. As the capitol of China, Beijing is where everything begins and ends, as a result, it is the political and cultural center. Beijing undergoes astronomical growth while maintaining its storied past. Whether you wander through 800 year-old hutongs at the city center, walk onto the field at the Bird’s Nest (National Stadium), or camp overnight on an unpreserved section of the Great Wall, Beijing offers a dynamic of old versus new unmatched by any other city in the world. The time is now for you to experience all that China has to offer. For more information about Beijing, visit: www.sinohotelguide.com/aboutbeijing.
