Capital of the People's Republic of China, Beijing is a vast, busy city that never sleeps. It manages to be both modern and traditional at the same time - one day you could be walking among skyscrapers and the next around ancient temples. Vast it may be but whichever Beijing hostel you stay in you’ll find it easy to travel around - the excellent subway network will quickly take you around the city and there are plenty of buses if not. Visit the impressive Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, see the Temple of Heaven, take in a unique Chinese acrobatic show, and if you’re planning on seeing the Great Wall of China, the nearest section is only 40 miles north of Beijing. You must also visit Dnghuámén Night Market – even if you’re a bit squeamish you have to see the wild array of delicacies including fried scorpions and boiled sea horses!
