Trans-Siberian Railway travel guide

Trans-Siberian Railway - Beijing (Chapter)

5th Edition Apr 2015

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

For weary Trans-Siberian travellers, Běijīng (北京) 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 perhaps for the first time since the Mongol invasion, Běijīng feels like a true international city, brimming with overseas business, cuisine of every kind, daring modern architecture and a thriving arts scene.

  • hiking along China’s most famous icon, the Great Wall, then bunking up for the night in a village guesthouse
  • maps
  • marvelling at the splendour of the Forbidden City, the world’s largest palace complex
  • transport
  • rising at dawn to catch the flag-raising ceremony at iconic Tiān’ānmén Square
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: History, Sights, Sleeping, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping.
