Two weeks across China, Beijing

Published March 15th, 2012

As soon as I leave the airport it is clear that I’m in a completely new, and different world. The sights, sounds and smells are overwhelming, I’m an alien in this place, clearly recognizable and unfamiliar around here.



That was my first experience when I landed in Beijing last February, after that I traveled through China for two weeks. First up: Beijing!

Tiananmen square

The most famous square in China, looking in the direction of the Forbidden City.

Streetlife

The streets in Beijing are bustling with life: cars, bikes, eating, talking, playing. It all happens at the same spot.

Beijing is clearly in a period of change, something very visible in the amount of cars. Beijing doesn't seem made for it, but the locals find ways to deal with that themselves...
