Lonely Planet author Eilis Quinn relishes the mix of cheesy and traditional, the head-spinning transformations, the back alleys and curious locals of Beijing. You'll need a bicycle and an itinerary but only to discard it in an instant.

A quick snapshot of the nightlife in Beijing. Michael Kohn braves a deep fried scorpion at the night markets, he explores some of the tiny bars which he describes as "holes in the walls." But have you ever seen fish swimming around in the ceiling while dining at a restaurant? Beijing has it all.
