What's up in Beijing

Lama Temple

Originally built in 1694 as the residence of the future Yongzheng Emperor, this complex of beautifully designed buildings was transformed into a Tibetan Buddhist temple in the mid-18th century. The Falun Dian, the temple's teaching and assembly hall, features a large bronze statute of Tsongkapa, the founder of the Buddhist Yellow Hat sect.

Ten Fu's Tea

This chain sells high-quality tea from across the region. The friendly staff brews small cups of tea for customers to sample.

Summer Palace

The Summer Palace was once used by the imperial family as a retreat from the stress of Beijing city life. The grounds include a range of buildings and gardens, including the Hall of Benevolence and Longevity, as well as the stunning Fragrant Buddha Tower, which offers superb views of Kunming Lake.
