BEIJING


Forbidden City
Pack away those assumptions of Maoist revolutionaries in buttoned-down tunics and pods of workers performing t'ai chi in the Square; this city has embarked on a new-millennium roller-coaster ride. These days, Beijing's youth are more interested in MTV then Mao; the rhetorical slogans of the Cultural Revolution have given way to herniated English splashed across designer-copy T-shirts; and expats, tourists, foreign investors and a cellular phone-toting hipoisie mix it up with the bureaucrats.
The old hutongs and buildings are being demolished, new buildings are going up, small things are giving way to big things and big things are giving way to even bigger things. This fast-paced, two-minute-noodles lifestyle doesn't please everyone - the old comrades are complaining about uppity youths and loss of values - but the capital of the People's Republic of China doesn't look like it's slowing down any time soon.

Orientation

Beijing is located in the northeastern corner of China. The city limits of Beijing extend some 80km (50mi), including the urban and the suburban areas and the nine counties under its administration. Mountainous along the north and west, and flat in the southeast, Beijing municipality has a total area of 16,800 sq km (6552 sq mi).
   

Great Wall
Though it may not appear so in the shambles of arrival, Beijing is a place of very orderly design. Long, straight boulevards and avenues are crisscrossed by a network of lanes. Places of interest are either very easy to find if they're on the avenues, or impossible to find if they're buried down the narrow alleys (hutongs). The Forbidden City acts like a bullseye, surrounded by a chessboard of roads.

Then there are the 'villages' (li). Beijing was once surrounded by many tiny villages, though over time these have in fact become neighbourhoods within the megalopolis. The Beijing Municipality is carved up into 10 districts and eight counties.
