"Beijing - Where Everything is Huge and Grand" Top 5 Page for this destination Beijing Shi by victorwkf

Beijing Shi Travel Guide: 6,880 reviews and 17,706 photos

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!

This is a typical city scene at Beijing, which is a very big city which is modernising at a rapid rate. There are many constructions everywhere in this vibrant city, including building of the sports facilities for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Many impressive attractions, lively and rapidly growing city
  • Cons:Pollution and bad traffic jams
  • In a nutshell:The evidences of previous great dynasties of China are here

    Peking Duck, I love that too. Just don't remember the restaurant but the servers wore traditional Chinese costumes. We had a lot of fun in Singapore, thanks for being a gracious host.
