    Outstanding skilled performance of stunts, dance and acrobatics by men, women and children in colourful costumes. Visually thrilling. The theatre itself was a bit run down and unkempt looking. We had reserved seats, but were told to "sit anywhere". We selected seats near the back and had a great overview. Strict instructions were given about no photography or videoing .. but still people chose to ignore this. However, the show itself was amazing and the acrobatics astounding. Highly recommended for an evening's entertainment.

    Came here with some friends for dinner. The area was nicely decorated for Christmas and the cool chill of December evening gave it a nice romantic feel.

    This is a place for dining and shopping. It has a good mix of international and local cuisine. We went to a Spanish restaurant and the food was really good.

    It looks like foreigners are allowed in again as I just needed to flash my.passport and show them my health code and reservation, which anyone can book online for free. It's a nice, big orderly museum but without English explanations

    Sophisticated luxury mall full of artistic statures and other interesting art. Top of line brands, expensive, but interesting to walk around.

    As we read the reviews before our trip, it said that no cards accepted, BUT now the cards were accepted. This was a good thing because our trip was coming to an end.
    The atmosphere is cool, liked the paintings and all. Service was good and the most important thing of all was that the lamb chops we ate were the best ever!

    A very good location in central Beijing.
    A beautiful traditional Chinese building, if you have been to Beijing many times and no ideas where to go, it will be a good choice.

    This museum is quite small and you just take some time to appreciate most arts.
    It is clean than what I expect and you can take the lift to the different levels to enjoy the different exhibition.

    Good to go and can learn Chinese & Taiwan art.

    It was an unusual rainy day in Beijin. To get over jet lag we opted for some window shopping. Good selection of small, medium and a large ZARA stores.

    Many stores were either being remodeled or replaced with new stores. Lots of restaurants, many with picture menus and modest prices, that seemed quite popular at lunch time.

    This is centrally located just inside the third ring road. My wife and I enjoyed window shopping and checking out menus

    This is a review of the clock gallery only. As other reviewers have noted, this requires a separate ticket from the nearby treasure gallery.

    This is worthwhile, but (on a weekend) it was extremely crowded. It is not large, but according to the website 82 clocks are on display. They are extremely ornate, and the workmanship involved is quite stunning.

    If you can be there on a weekday, perhaps it would be less crowded and more enjoyable.
