Beijing - The Former Seat of the Ming and Qing Dynasty Emperors.


by Dario Endara

I finally reached Beijing, the last stop on my Trans-Siberian trip which included Russia and Mongolia.

I was fascinated with the size of the city and the amount of people who reside here. I only had a few days to explore this part of China so I made sure to include Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden City, and the Great Wall.

Of course aside from the major tourist attractions, the many narrow alleyways, called hutongs, are worth a visit. Here you will get a real taste of local life.
