I have never seen a city like Beijing. The sheer size of it overwhelms the senses as massive architectural feats tower over you.

The National Center of the Performing arts was breathtaking. Even if you don't have time to see a performance, taking a stroll through the giant building is worth the trip.

Beijing is full of stories, on display in their many cultural sites and museums. It's heritage and nationalism was on full display during the flag rising in Tiananmen Square. The city stops and goes quiet while fully uniformed soldiers march out from the Forbidden City.

As the flag unfurls, thousands of Chinese citizens and tourists from the world applaud and take pictures of a site that is truly something to behold. Although the trip has came to an end, I still look forward for the next meet with Beijing, and finding more surprises here. (Author: Jonathan Conti Translator: Chen Mengnan)
