Beijing is where tradition meets modernity. From the age-old hutong (old alleyways) to the busy commercial streets, Beijing is mesmerizing because of its diversity -- industry and art, classic and trendy, East and West.
Beijing is home to several UNESCO world heritage sites such as the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, the Summer Palace, and part of the Grand Canal.
