Living in Beijing


Over the past twenty years China has opened its doors to the global community. During this time Beijing, (which means “North capital”), has been transformed, both by the influx of foreign investment and a boom in modern construction. Today, the city is a hub of innovation in the arts and culture, in business and in technology. Beijing boasts the fusion of a rich cultural heritage with cutting-edge technology. This is evident everywhere in the city, from its architecture to its transport system, to its restaurants and its public spaces. In Beijing, modern skyscrapers tower over closely packed old neighbourhoods – the famous “hutongs” - while high-end sports cars zip past rickshaw carriages. Beijing is home to ancient temples, imperial palaces, and other monuments of immense historic and cultural significance. It is a place in which to barter at local markets and dine in countless restaurants that open, close and pop up in new locations across the city. This cosmopolitan city can be a home away from home; a place to explore with all the comfort of modern conveniences.
