The city that got the ultimate makeover

Beijing, like many large Asian cities, is a merging of ancient and modern. Groundbreaking architecture, plush five star hotels and Michelin-starred restaurants now rub shoulders with relics of the city’s past, be they street hawkers, traditional neighborhoods or UNESCO World Heritage sights.

Well preserved ornate historical Chinese mansions with rich heritage Editors' Note

Gong Wang Fu is an ornate historical mansion built in the late 18th century. Originally constructed for Chinese minister He Shen, it was transferred to Emperor Xianfeng’s brother, Prince Gong, in the mid-18th century. This well preserved mansion complex is part of China’s rich cultural heritage.

Gong Wang Fu has recently undergone rennovation. It is now a museum spotlighting Royalty during time of the Qing dynasty. The complex includes an opera house.
