Welcome To Beijing
A very warm welcome to the InterContinental Beijing Financial Street. My concierge team and I are honoured to be at your service. Our aim is to exceed your expectations and we look forward to sharing our knowledge about the unique culture and traditions of Beijing.
InterContinental Beijing Financial Street was the first international upscale hotel in the western part of the prestigious business district. A magnificent 18-storey atrium, contemporary design and traditional Chinese art set it apart, as does the ideal location. Just minutes away are Tiananmen Square, Central Government Admministration area, Lane Crawford and Seasons Palace shopping centre.
It is a beautiful morning in Beijing! First, witness the early morning flag raising ceremony each day at sunrise in Tiananmen Square, one of the largest squares in the world; it's something you can't miss! Then you can walk along to the western edge of the square to the Great Hall of the People. Due to the square's scale it's a good place to watch the throng of Beijingers walking and riding their bicycles to work; it is a fascinating sight. Stroll through the maze of narrow alleys of the nearby Hutongs to get a better understanding of what an ancient Beijing was like. In one of these traditional courtyard homes, you can watch the residents as they prepare typical Beijingers’ dumplings. Try to make one yourself - it's a great fun. Finally, stroll through the historical Peking Opera Gardens and try some the traditional tea that you can find there.
You can spend a whole afternoon in the Forbidden City (Imperial Palace) and be happily content; it has 9,999 buildings to explore. Located to the north of Tiananmen Square in the heart of Beijing, it's the world's largest palace complex. Built in 1420, the Forbidden City has been the home to 24 emperors from the Ming and Qing dynasties (1644-1911) and is as fascinating as it is awesome in its scale.
For a great evening's experience as well as an historical insight into China, you should go to a 'Beijing Night Show'. Dine on a meal fit for an Emperor before the show begins. Then, performers representing the 56 nationalities of China, accompanied by traditional folk music, will describe the country's unique and diverse history. After the show, why not go to Sanlitun, which is one of the most popular bar streets in Beijing. It is part of the larger Gongti nightlife area, which is situated in eastern urban Beijing's Chaoyang District. It remains fashionable with the expat community, foreign travelers and younger locals.
