Explore. Experience. Engage.


Ever since Beijing was confirmed to be the host city for the 2008 Olympic Games, the city's accommodation options have proliferated, with dozens of luxury hotels opening up and many older properties getting a facelift. There are plentiful options at all price ranges, and you can often negotiate for large discounts -- especially during non-peak seasons. The Dongcheng district of central Beijing is the closest to major attractions like the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. You'll find better shopping, dining and nightlife in east Beijing, or the Chaoyang district. Chaoyang also contains the 798 art district and the Sunlitun Village, a mecca of international fare.
