beijing is a great city. but perfect? Isn't that a bit extreme? surely there's space to improve... but with the new airport terminal 3 opening in the next couple of weeks, and with the expanding rail/road networks, the city's getting increasingly exciting and successful.

Beijing looks amazing... it's more impressive than dubai, but without the silliness and gaudiness of it. On behalf of all Pakistanis, all I can say is "Wow!"

Beijing's streets are very rarely empty. As ssfan just said they were probably taken very early in the morning. Also maybe some streets were closed to traffic for construction work...

Beijing is a HELL to drive with your car. You can stand hours and hours in a traffic jam. Beijing is one chaos, there is traffic day and night. Incredible. I was there last year.
