    National Museum Of China

    5 reviews

    This is a truly global museum and well worth the two hours I spent in it. Probably could go back and spend an entire day. 4000 years of Chinese history in about ten rooms. Amazing!

    Forbidden City

    131 reviews

    The Forbidden City is a marvel of Ming Dynasty design and architecture. People who have been to the Golden Palace in Bangkok often get a little dissapointed when visiting the Forbidden City, because it - at a glance - does not look as impressive as the Bangkok palace or other such sights around the world. However in order to fully ...

    Wangfujing Snack Street

    15 reviews

    It's very touristy, but you can get your fix of super weird foods like scorpion and starfish. Some is good (snake, scorpion), some is bad (centipede). There's other actually tasty foods like dumplings and stinky tofu between the strange things.

    Despite the horrible destruction of the hutongs that were in this area, the "egg in the water", as it is sometimes called in Beijing, magnificent opera and concerts take place. The architecture inside is compelling and made entirely in glass, steel and the vault is of brasilian wood. Three concert halls in there.

    Overrated! The show was so slow. Only interesting part was towards the end with the Changing Faces performance. I do not recommend paying for a show. Try to catch a less expensive/free mid-day show instead.

    Opened since 1902 (that's right, when China still had an emperor), Tong Sheng He is one of those time honored brands that is known for its quality, durability, and workmanship. There are actually first quality original designed products that are made here in China. As a shoe fan, this was a must visit for me and although I didn't make ...

    A great bar in a really interesting area of Beijing. This bar has live music Wed-Sunday and each night showcases a different genre. Last concert was a Chinese rockabilly band that whipped the crowd into a swing dancing frenzy. Plus the it's free entry. Drinks are moderately priced and the bar is in the process of adding a rooftop terrace. ...

    It's present the Acrobatic Beijing show. Really amazing to watch the show. There are including balancing skills, chinese martial arts, traditional face changing, flying motorbikes. It is worthy to pay money for the show. Should be arrive theater 30 minutes before the show starts.
