Discover Beijing’s hidden culture … before the bulldozers get there

Discover Beijing’s hidden culture … before the bulldozers get there – CNN.com.

Forbidden City

This is an interesting and poignant article on CNN.com about the Beijing’s struggle to save their architectural heritage while dealing with the city’s rapid growth. Β It is unfortunate when significant places are lost in the name of modernization, and Beijing has been dealing with the juxtaposition of the old and new in their city for years. Β The photos featured in the article are excellent if you haven’t been there to see these incredible sites.

I hope I can get there one day to see it before it has changed too much.
