Three alternative sights in Beijing


Three off-the-tourist-trail sights in China’s glittering capital, for a fresh perspective on the city.

It can be hard to know where to start in this multifaceted metropolis. The good news? Checking in to Mandarin Oriental Wangfujing, Beijing, you’ve picked a first-rate base, perfectly positioned for taking in the remarkable Forbidden City. Once you’ve wandered the palaces, gardens and courtyards hidden behind its high walls, head off the tourist trail at these lesser-visited, richly rewarding addresses.
