Forbidden City (紫禁城)

The Forbidden City, or "former palace" (故宫), is one of the must-see sights in Beijing. In the afternoon sunshine, the red walls and golden roof tiles cast a glow across the vast courtyards of this symbol of China's mighty imperial past. If pressed for time, try to spend at least half a day exploring; if you have more time, consider return trips—the Forbidden City's stately spaces and myriad treasures are best lingered over.

NanluoguXi'ang (南锣鼓巷)

With a history of over 800 years, the Nan Luo Gu Xi'ang (Southern Gong and Drum Lane)is one of the Beijing`s oldest hutongs and has been one of Beijing's 25 cultural and historical protection areas since 1990. However, it is a place where you can find small & fashion shops, bars, restaurants. Strolling in the lane, you will forget the hustle and bustle of the metropolis Beijing immediately. Nan Luo Gu Xi'ang offers a creative way of changing and preserving traditions.

National Stadium (Bird's Nest 国家体育场)

Affectionately known as Bird's Nest, the National Stadium is situated in Olympic Green Village, Chaoyang District of Beijing City. It was designed as the main stadium of 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

798 Art Zone (798艺术区)

798 Art Zone comprise a complex of 50-year-old decommissioned military factory buildings boasting a unique architectural style, located in Dashanzi, Chaoyang District of Beijing, that houses a thriving artistic community. The area is often called the 798 Art District or Factory 798 although technically, Factory #798 is only one of several structures inside a complex formerly known as 718 Joint Factory.

The Place (世贸天阶)

Beijing's funkiest new mall is easy to spot thanks to the digital canopy that sweeps over its central outdoor plaza - the biggest LED screen in Asia would you believe. However if you find the butterflies and seascapes that flash up on it all a bit too much, head straight indoors to the tri-level mall which houses Spanish fashion chain Zara and Canadian shoe retailer Aldo's flagship store.
