I have visited Beijing three times so far: in October 2006, July 2004 and April 2008. During the visits, I have limited time for sightseeing so I did not manage to visit some of the famous tourist spots there (Anyway, there are many tourist spots and you have to spend at least a few days to finishing seeing them because they are really huge!).
However, I will try to give you an insight into the attractions and life in Beijing as I have experienced. Hope they will be useful in your trip to Beijing. As for me, I will hope to visit Beijing again as I want to visit all the remaining spots which I have missed out during my 2 visits :)
This VT page will be updated bit by bit due to my busy work nowadays, so do keep a lookout for the updates!
