One day we made our way to central Beijing. We could not come to Beijing and say we had not seen the CBD. It is big, as one would expect, with very tall modern buildings. We asked in one if they had an observation deck and they told us just go to the eightieth floor.
We did that and it was a very upmarket bar / coffee lounge with a few businessmen (they wore suits I wore a Thai shirt and camera bag) So we rather conspicuously took some pictures out of the bar windows and beat a hasty retreat.
For lunch we had some great dumplings, walked a bit more and headed for the metro and home. It does not take much to wear Wombats out, especially the blistered feet..
