Beijing, China


Local Time

Sprawling is an understatement – Beijing is one of the world’s biggest and busiest cities, and plans are in motion to merge it with neighbouring areas to form a megalopolis of 100 million. Here, in China’s political and cultural heart, there are endless sights, both monumental (Temple of Heaven, the Forbidden City, a stretch of the Great Wall) and intimate (ancient alleyways known as hutongs, some hiding excellent hole‑in‑the‑wall restaurants).

Due to COVID-19, please contact businesses directly to determine their current business operations before travelling.
