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.  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.  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.
