Trans-Siberian Railway travel guide

Trans-Siberian Railway - Beijing (Chapter)

4th Edition Apr 2012

This is the Běijīng chapter from Lonely Planet’s Trans Siberian Railway guidebook.

For weary Trans-Siberian travellers, Běijīng will feel like the figurative pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. The 2008 Olympics were instrumental in transforming the Chinese capital and for the first time since the Mongol invasion, Běijīng feels like an international city, brimming with overseas business, cuisine of every kind, daring modern architecture and a thriving arts scene.

  • Ascending the dizzying heights of the Great Wall and looking back towards Mongolia
  • Celebrating the end (or beginning) of your Trans-Siberian journey at one of Běijīng’s rocking nightclubs
  • Romping through the seemingly endless courtyards of the Forbidden City
  • maps
  • Standing in wonder in Tiananmen Sq, centre of the Chinese universe and the scene of jubilation and strife since the founding of modern China
  • transport
  • Hiring a bike to skirt through the dense hútòng, Běijīng’s traditional alleyways
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square & Around, North of the Forbidden City, Around Běijīng, Great Wall of China.
