Jabs are for wimps. A pollution mask is much more useful at this time...|
There are a lot more impressive cities around China but Beijing is still on my 'must go' list. I much prefer it to shanghai which is just a big modern city like anywhere else in the world.
Tianenmen square is not that impressive butt it is pretty central and easy to get to and it is also right in front of the forbidden city and the arrow and drum towers, both of which are pretty cool, one of them has a nice museum inside but I cant remember which.
There is a great food street, I think it is Wanfujing, where you can get all the deep fried scorpions and stuff as well as some fantastic real food.
