Beijing is...

... big, noisy and polluted but I LOVE THIS CITY!

Beijing is...

...vibrating history, friendly people, excellent food and great beer!!

Here on VT I take the opportunity to show you around in my wonderful Beijing!

Living in Beijing

The first time I visited Beijing was in December 1988. When I put my foot on the ground at Beijing Airport I had the strong feeling, that I had lived in Beijing in a former life! I came back to Bejing in April 1991 and September 1992. And again at the Spring Festival in February 1999! My last visit to Beijing was in April 2011.

1993/94 I was lucky enough to study Chinese at the Beijing Language Institute - one year in my favourite city!!! I think, this was one of my happiest times in my life.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Friendly people, famous temples and palaces
  • Cons:crowded and polluted
  • In a nutshell:A wonderful city with wonderful people!
  • Last visit to Beijing: Apr 2011
