wow thanks for these, very nice
actually I'd like to see more fresh snapshots of Mainland cities on this board, so if there's a possibility it would be great.

And welcome to SSC!

I love the buildings in Beijing, big and medium sized height, not everything has to be skyscrapers.

Vertigo Transsib: Beijing

Hi all,

I recently visited China on a Transsiberian train journey (Netherlands - Russia - Mongolia - China - North Korea - China). I place all pics in the world section of the forum, but I though it would be nice to place the Beijing pics also in this section. I hope you like them...!

After visiting Mongolia we spent a couple of days in Beijing. In one word: GREAT! Those Asian cities are terrific. Huge main roads with loads of modern buildings long them, and what a crowds in the shopping streets! In the Netherlands urban planners always talk about how to get a city lively... they should take a look at some of these Chinese cities.

The best thing of Beijing in my opinion, are the hutongs (traditional areas). Loads and loads of narrow, winding streets, filled with an enourmous amount of small eateries and shops. All the streets are crowded with people and traders until late at night. Great food too, for only a couple of euros. You gotta know how to eat with chopsticks though... I heard the hutongs are disappearing at a fast pace, to make place for modern developments. I sure hope some will remain, because that's really where the heart of Beijing is!

1. Modern Beijing


2.


3. What a crowds!


4.


5. New residential area close to the Forbidden City.


6. Sorry, a bit blurry. Beijing's new opera house (U/C)


7. New residential towers, just outside the city centre.


8. Modern buildings close to the main railway station.


9. A crowded shopping street close to Tiananmen Square


10. Around that street there are several hutongs. This is the entrance to one of them.


11. Some pics of such a hutong:


12.


13.


14.


15.


16.


17.


Coming up: pics of the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square.

Now some pics of the monuments in the heart of Beijing.

The central point of the city is of course the gigantic Tiananmen Square, about a kilometer from north to south. We arrived in China on 1 october, which was National Day. This meant that it was very busy in the city. We went to Tiananmen Square that evening, and it was really really crowded with lots of people... Some people found it special to see a foreigner and asked us to pose on one of their pictures. I suppose those people come from rural China, because inhabitants of Beijing will clearly be used to seeing foreigners...Anyway, it was a very special and good atmosphere that night.

Later we visited the Forbidden City, a huge terrain with the palaces of the former emperors. It's very impressive, although crowded with tourists. North and east of the Forbidden Cities are some nice parks. One of those has a great (though crowded) viewpoint over the Forbidden City. The other one has a lake where you can rent boats... a nice thing to do for a while.

18. A gate in the former city walls, south of Tiananment Square.


19. The gate on the northern side of the square, leading to the Forbidden City

20. Again the south side of the square. On the right side of the picture is a former railway station; now it's a shopping mall.


21. The Forbidden City


22. Beihai-park


23.


24.


25. Inside the Forbidden City


26.

Absolutely stunning. What Beijing lacks in height, it makes up for in design. I like that one particular street shot near the SOHO buildings. Its so futuristic and clean... reminds me of Tokyo!!!
