In Beijing, the Forbidden City evokes ancient dynastic power, while Tiananmen Square and Chairman Mao’s Mausoleum reveal complex 20th-century politics. Xi’an, terminus of the ancient Silk Road, retains its city walls and the famed terracotta warriors, while the narrow lanes of Lijiang get us thinking about our own city planning. Atop the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai we’ll feel the buzz of urbanism and change, while the culture in Hong Kong reflects a mix of imperialism and independence. Aside the Great Wall or along a bike path outside Yangshuo, let etr show you the joy of taking the grand scale down to details.
