What to do

 

What we did is so little compared to what you can do in Beijing. It just depends what you like, and the choice will be anyway, huge.

From art galleries, to excellent and delicate food, Pubs, Discos, Museums, History, shopping of all kinds. Now, if you prefer the nature, beautiful parks are within the city and if you feel like seeing something different, it is really worth it then to take a cab (very cheap) and leave the city to discover the gorgeous surrounding landscape. The summer palace is near the city and already offers great opportunities. Other cities, and historical sites are everywhere around Beijing, the difficulty is really which one to choose, as they are so many attractive ones.
