The weather in Peking is hot, humid and rainy in the summer, and dry and cold in the winter. Expect to encounter seasonal temperature extremes. Bring very light clothing and rain gear for summer. Bring layers and a warm coat, hat, scarf and mittens or lined gloves for winter. Spring and autumn tend to be short, fairly dry, and moderate in temperature.


In Peking, shopping options include traditional markets, shopping districts and shopping malls. Haggling is usually necessary in order to get a reasonable price, and locals recommend starting at 25 per cent of the asking price or less. Traditional markets include the New Silk Alley Market, the Pearl Market, the Dong Hua Men Night Market, and the Panjiayuan Antique Market. Yandai Xie Street, Wangfujing Street, and Beijing Wangfujing Commercial Street are popular high streets. For those who prefer a western-style shopping mall, Qianmen Main Street Mall and The Place are centrally located.


The most famous speciality in Peking is undoubtedly Peking duck, which is roast duck eaten in a pancake with sliced scallions, sliced cucumbers and plum sauce. Mutton hotpot, a Manchurian dish, is also popular. Peking is full of small restaurants and food carts, and the quality of the street food is often excellent. The savoury breakfast pancakes, served with egg and scallions, are not to be missed, and Chinese-style lamb kabobs are popular, as well.


Most of Peking’s trendy nightclubs can be found in the Chaoyang district, near the embassies, and in other parts of the city centre. Sanlitun Bar Street is the classic karaoke bar and disco strip, and it attracts both tourists and locals. The Houhai Lake Area offers live music, lounges, and a less manic setting for a drink and some live entertainment. Of course, the Peking Opera, acrobatic shows and live music are worth a look and a listen as well.
