Ever since Marco Polo published his wide-eyed report on Khanbaligh, or Cambaluc, the city of the Mongol khans, Peking - as Beijing has been known for most of the past 300 years - has captured the Western imagination as few other ancient cities have. Beijing Walks presents six detailed walking tours of the most important historic quarters of the Chinese capital - the Forbidden City, the former Legation Quarter, Beihai Park, the Temple of Heaven, the Confucius Temple, and the Summer Palace.

All tours are placed in their imperial contexts and enlivened with drawings and photographs. Beijing Walks offers vital information on everything from feng shui, Pekingese dogs, and Peking duck to Peking Opera and the emperors' private lives, evoking the sights, sounds, and smells of old Peking, its pleasures and its grandeur.

- All the charm of life in imperial times

- Fascinating 19th century engravings
- Walk-related hotels and restaurants
- A Beijing afficionado to guide you
