Beijing is quickly bcoming known as one of the world’s greatest capitals. These days going there is a must, almost like New York city twenty years ago. The city has much to be discovered: The Pagoda of Tianning Temple, at 13 stories and 57.8 m (189 ft) in height, built in 1120 during the Liao Dynasty is agreat example of chinese classic architecture. The Fortbidden city is obviously something you cannot miss, but if you have time take a walk iin the Changpu River park not to far from there. To see the modern side of the capital the National Centre for the Performing Arts is a stunning example of modern architecture along with the Chinese Television headquarter.
