Cultural Treasures of Beijing

Beijing is an amazing city of over 21 million people today. It is a blend of modern and ancient. It is home to a vibrant arts scene, it has been a political centre for eight centuries, is filled with stunning architecture that has influenced building in much of Asia, and has a very rich and dynamic history. This gallery showcases only a few of the cultural treasures from the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace.

In the Forbidden City yellow is an important colour in the palace as it was the colour of the emperor. Each year an estimated 16 million tourists come to see this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Some visitors dress for the occasion.
