China's capital city is a vibrant jumble of neighborhoods and districts. Home to such ancient treasures as the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace, Beijing is constantly transforming itself with a building boom that never seems to end.

Discovering today's Beijing is a fascinating journey between an ancient civilization and a brave new world.
