Default Beijing in Winter... (minus the smog)

Old vs New

Beautiful photos. I guess the smog must be really bad. I've seen many references advising not to go during the summer.

It's more like a hit or miss...

When we were booking for trip the smog was pretty bad and we downloaded a smog warning app (and even went to the pharmacy to buy face masks)!
However when we finally got there the sky was sunny and clear for all our tours.

Fantastic pictures for Beijing without any tourists in them which are hard to do. Tourist spots like these normally are flooded with people.
