Behind Beijing’s Walls

There has never been a more exciting time to visit China’s Capital.  Here’s what not to miss.

By Tradition, Beijing is a city of walls, sheltering its intrigues and ambitions behind a series of concentric barriers-from the Great Wall down to courtyard homes that draw sunlight only from  the gardens at their core. But those barriers are being demolished as China turns itself to the world and churns with the constant import and export of personalities and inspirations.

Because of Beijing’s sized and depth of history, you’ll need five to seven days, ideally in the fall or Spring to avoid the summer heat and the Mongolian wind.  Save time for an overnight on the edge of the countryside, and dedicate a day or two to strolling the Hutong alleyways, two experiences that will not be around in such authentic form much longer ..
