Not just a city of politics, Beijing is also a city of culture, both traditional and contemporary. Pages could be written on both, but this cultural reading of the city will focus more on the contemporary, looking at the Beijing of film, literature, music, art, before moving to the street-life culture of the hutongs. . .
Beijing offers a whole world of culture to explore, both local and global, with interesting hybrids of each emerging and then entering the flow of global cultural production.
