My recent trip to Beijing is my third. My first trip is 16 years ago and my second 9 years ago. I can see a different Beijing during every trip. The developement is so fast and rapid. Tall buildings are replacing the hutongs, cars replacing bicycles and influx of western culture is killing the local culture.
Nevertheless, Beijing still remains one of the most interesting places to visit. Greatwall of China, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace are among a few of Unesco World Heritage site that worth all the time you have in Beijing. One of the most enjoyable moment in Beijing includes, strolling along the old hutongs while watching the locals going on with their lives.
The Beijing 2008 Olympic is coming soon. Government is speeding up the developement of Beijing. Unfortunately that means, 'now 'might not be a suitable time for a visit. Constructions can be seen everywhere. Almost all the major tourist attractions, there will be restoration works on-going. Part of Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and also the Summer Palace and close to tourist for restoration works that will stretch till 2008!
