Travel to China: Beijing: Photo 31

world pictures China: Beijing

We've continued almost a mile north and are in the Drum Tower. In front of us is the Bell Tower, rebuilt in 1745. Once, there were two more gates ahead of us, one leaving the Imperial City and the last leaving the Inner City. Notice the contrast between two very different Beijings, an older city of courtyard houses (siheyuan) and a new one of highrises.
