... the Forbidden City at its heart. Today, an all-pervading spirit of change has added an exiting new dimension to the city.
Expanding in concentric rings from the Forbidden City at its core, the grid-like layout of modern-day Beijing still echoes its Ming dynasty blueprint. Old Beijing survives in its temples, palaces and old alleyways (hutong) that crisscross the ...
