China is the most populous country in the world, with borders that stretch for more than 12,000 miles. Beijing is the capital and political nerve centre of China. Readers of this guide can experience its great ancient culture, displayed in countless pagodas, temples and palaces, unique tombs and works of art. Part of the "Inside Pocket Guides" series, this book takes the reader on a trip on foot and on a bicycle, and shows that Beijing is also a sprawling village that fills the nooks and crannies between the Forbidden City, the Great Hall of People and the Great Wall. There are do-it-yourself itineraries, including all-day tours, half-day tours and short excursions. Hotels, restaurants and shops and supplies are also provided, with practical information on how to get there, when to go, what clothes to take, what visas to obtain and what to do in an emergency.
