two free days in Beijing

Jump to last reply

Will be in Beijing next week for two free days before our group starts touring all the usual important sites. Would love suggestions for something to see that is more typically cultural of China if that is possible in such a big city. Any particularly wonderful markets or gardens?

And does anyone know what the smog is like there now?

Also would it be wise to buy a canon lens there? I'm looking for a longer lens and would like to save some money.

Thanks!
