The Forbidden City. The Summer Palace. Tian'anmen Square. Beijing is famed for its iconic historical sights. But it's also a dynamic, dizzying city, where hipsters rub elbows with old-timers practicing tai ji in misty morning parks, and laptop-toting businessmen collect herbal cures from traditional pharmacies. Leading you through the ancient hutongs and around the city's cutting-edge arts scene, from its Tibetan temples to its elegant teahouses, this fully revised edition introduces the very best of Beijing. And it heads beyond the city, too, as far as the fabled Great Wall of China and to the astonishing imperial city of Chengde.
