Buildings in Beijing

Building in Beijing in Chinese

There were so many interesting buildings in Beijing. Unfortunately we only saw most of them as we were traveling from one place to another and I was madly shooting through the windows on the bus. It was frustrating. These were the best of the lot and will give you only a tiny idea of the variety of architecture to be found in Beijing. Also unfortunately, I have no idea what most of them are. I've identified the ones I know.

I have to begin by saying that all over Beijing there are trees and landscaping. But it's not only planting so many plants, it's the attention to detail and design. This is only one example of the designs to be found all over Beijing. It's not just a simple hedge down the center of the road, but an entire pattern. And a different pattern on the next road. Even on the superhighways that are elevated. I don't know how or when someone gets up there to plant all of those flowers along the sides of the roads, but there they are!
