'The trusted companion for a generation of independent travellers' - The New York Times

  • Includes handy pull-out map
  • The only guide with Chinese script throughout the book and on maps makes navigating B?ij?ng easy
  • Special chapters on Beijing's historic hútòng (alleyways) and China's iconic Great Wall
  • Meet some of the 17 million inhabitants through interviews with a bar owner, a rock star, a Peking duck master and more
  • Experience Beijing?s rich culture, from ancient history to medieval temples to modern literature

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.
Produced by Lonely Planet TV

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.
