Beijing Travel Guide

Beijing has embarked on a new millennium rollercoaster and it's taking the rest of China with it. Today's youth are more interested in MTV than Mao, rhetorical slogans from the Cultural Revolution have given way to butchered English splashed across designer-copy T-shirts, and expats, tourists, foreign investors and a mobile phone-toting hip-oisie are mixing it up with the bureaucrats.

City´s old alleys and buildings are being demolished, new buildings are going up, small things are giving way to big things and big things are giving way to even bigger things. The capital of the People's Republic of China doesn't look like it's slowing down any time soon.
