Boxer Rebellion Walking Tour - Under Siege

250px-BoxerSoldiersBoxer Rebellion Walking Tour - Under Siege

Hear the incredible story of the summer of
1900, when 4,000 foreigners and Chinese lived
under siege from radical mystic rebels for 55
days. Follow us into the old Legation Quarter to
hear stories about the bombing of the French
embassy, the wavering Qing Court and how
200,000 bullets flew into the sky without finding
a single target.

It can be arranged that the tour can end at a high end restaurant in the area for a well-deserved complimentary drink and a
small exhibition curated by Beijing Postcards of original photos and maps from the early 1900's!

 
Looking for the Master Plan
Looking for the Master Plan
-How did Beijing become the city it is today?
Why was the capital originally placed on the Huabei plain? And
where the bloody hell is the first ring road? "Looking for the Master Plan" is
a crash course in Beijing's urban development. Through this talk you will get a
clear understanding of how Beijing became the city it is today. Using their own
collection of original maps of Beijing, Beijing Postcards has created a very
visual presentation of the development of the Northern capital, from a maze of
hutong alleyways to a megacity with over 20 million inhabitants.
 
The Story of Tiananmen
The Story of Tiananmen

11_Nov_Tiananmen_1976-77_-1_small_redTian'anmen: The Gate of Heavenly Peace. We all know about it; it feels like it has always been there.

The Portrait of Mao Zedong that hangs on the wall is carved into the minds of billions of people - my mind as well as yours!

But how did Tian'anmen become what it is today?

In this talk we trace the background of Tian'anmen Gate through pictures that were taken of it over the last hundred years, piecing together the history of Modern China's most important piece of architecture.

 
History of the Hutong
History of the Hutong (Walk)

-What is all the fuzz about?

gateFollow Beijing Postcards into the curved Hutong alleyways around the Drum and Bell Towers of Beijing. Listen to stories of opium dens and vast mansions of former officials. Gain a profound understanding of old Beijing during a fun and interesting afternoon.

Along the way we will discover lanes so narrow that not even the tricycle rickshaws will be able to reach us. We will hear about the incredible transformation of this area from high society dwellings, over workers accommodation, to the peculiar mixture of generals, workers, romantic foreign fools and politicians residing in the area today.

What will happen to this area in the future? Is preservation a real option or will this area, in the very heart of Beijing, have to cave in to developers.

After two hours in the Hutong you will be left with lots to ponder about, with a drink in one hand and some snacks in the other.

 
"The Central Axis of Beijing"

Tiananmen_1930s_small

The Central Axis of Beijing

Beijing is built around a 7.8-kilometre-long central axis, even older than the city itself. All the most important imperial institutions of old Beijing were placed either alongside or directly upon the axis. "The Central Axis of Beijing" tells the story of this commanding stretch from when it was first laid out during the Mongol Yuan dynasty, to when it was condemned after the communist takeover, right up until the 2008 Olympics where the axis enjoyed a big comeback when it was prolonged up to the Olympic Village.

Mapping the Middle Kingdom and its Capital Beijing

Chinese Scholars, Jesuit Priests, Anti-Opium Commissioner Lin Zexu, and the Land of People with Three Heads

All_under_Heaven_China_MapDid you know that even though maps have been used in China for over 2000 years and that the Chinese had invented woodblock printing as long ago as the Tang dynasty, until the twentieth century the majority of Chinese maps were still produced with a brush? Or that in 1688 the Chinese Emperor Kangxi hired a group of French Jesuit priests who started a 30-year project to map all of the Middle Kingdom, the maps from which were still being used by foreign explorers in the 1920s and 30s to navigate around China? Or, indeed, that the famous anti-opium commissioner Lin Zexu, risked his life by collecting and translating Western geographical works on China and publishing his own book revolutionizing the way the Chinese viewed themselves and their place in the world?

"Beijing on the Move"
Beijing on the Move

 

__smallDuring the last hundred years, the city of Beijing has transformed itself. It is as if the demolition of the city wall has unleashed development of a nearly unprecedented scale.

 

"Beijing on the Move" is the story of this transformation. It is the story of how development caught up with the old Qing capital and how the city gradually broke down the walls of its confinement and took over the whole of the Huabei plain. It describes how every gate in the old city wall had its own purpose: a gate for water, coal, alcohol, for soldiers marching in to war, and one for excrements. It's the story of how the walls and gates were gradually torn down and opening up the city for the ever increasing traffic, and how twisting donkey drawn carts and long lazy camel caravans and wheelbarrows were overtaken by rickshaws and tramways, before they in turn were surpassed by automobiles, metro lines and bullet trains forever changing the layout of the imperial capital of the Ming and Qing dynasties.

“中国鸦片战争”

"中国鸦片战争" - 神话与现实
