The Many Faces of Beijing.

City of the Future.
City of the past.
City victory of communism.
City of Art.
In Beijing, I realized:
1 It is not necessary to come to the end of the summer - very hot.
2 Do not sit behind the wheel and take a car to rent.
3 The Chinese do not speak in English, so vezite with a conversation, discharge the hieroglyphic names of the desired location, and the hotel is sure to take the card written in Chinese address to show it to the taxi drivers.
4 In Beijing, there can be anywhere - checked. Moreover, in the dirtiest roadside establishments, is at times tastier than the refined restaurant.
5 We need to trade even in places where they sell silk embroidery, antique jade and sea pearls.
6 Do not take items from the Chinese one-hand, even if you just hold out a business card or bill. By local standards it's awful rude. Send and receive whatever was needed only two hands, and preferably with a slight bow.
