The history of ancient Chinese cities can be traced back 4,000 years. The planning of these cities has, in itself, a rich and well-documented past that visitors can discover on a visit to the Beijing Planning Exhibition Hall. The exhibition hall, which opened in 2004, displays a detailed scale model of Beijing, along with a geographical model showing the mountains, rivers and roads around the city. If you opt for a two-hour audio tour, it will provide detailed information throughout the multiple exhibition areas, taking in Beijing’s past and plans for the city’s future development, looking ahead to Beijing as an eco-friendly city.
