Beijing, one of the four Great Ancient Capitals of China is a metropolis in every sense of the word. It has a great history and is at the same time on top of the 21st century as a vibrant and exciting city. Destination Beijing shows you, in 300 pages of stunning photography and quotes, the greatest treasures of the centre of Chinese art and culture. From ancient monuments such as the Tiananmen, the Temple of Heaven, Beihai Park, the University and other palaces, temples and gates, to the newest districts and buildings. We visit the National Stadium (built for the 2008 Olympic Games), the Beijing Financial Street and the 798 Art Zone, which mixes old and new styles of architecture.
