1 Day Modern Beijing Tour

Since become the capital of China, Beijing has been developed fast in many sides. One side, in the same time of protecting the old architecture and historical sites, strengthen the reconstruction of old area. The other side, accelerate the development of economy. Beijing is the complex of modern and ancient with the imperial buildings and modern buildings. Visited the famous side of ancient Beijing, it left me deep shock about the architecture techniques and skills of ancient Chinese people. So I want to have an exploration of Beijing modern facilities and buildings. Without any hesitation, I booked the one day private tour to visit the modern buildings of Beijing on the local Beijing travel agency, which is my trustful tour operator for my several times Beijing tour.

Xidan Commercial Center

First to National Grand Theater, also known as the Bird Egg, is the opera house in Beijing. It was designed by French architect Paul Andreu, the designer of the terminal of the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. He is one of my favorite designers in the world. Then move to the Xidan Commercial Street, I liked this street very much, because of the various shopping malls from ordinary type to top-level and from cheap to expensive. You could buy any style you like in this commercial street, including commerce, entertainment, dinning, etc. It is the second modern street just after Wangfujing Commercial Street in Beijing. If I have free time in Beijing, I would have careful tour in this Xidan Commercial Street.

Beijing Olympic Park

What shocked me were the Bird Nest and Water Cube in this modern Beijing tour. They were the main stadiums in 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. With unique shape and high-level materials, Bird Nest and Water Cube attract amounts of tourists from all over the world, especially the fans of Olympic Games and architecture. Now they are opened to public for exercising. Many tourists took pictures in front of them, and entered into them to enjoy the feelings of Olympic Games.

Still many modern buildings and places I have visited in this Beijing tour, they show the other side of Beijing, different the ancient Beijing. The perfect combination of ancient and modern in Beijing attracts more travelers for this tourist city. Enjoyed it much better, and I will continue my Beijing tour and China tour in future time.
