The bustling metropolis of Beijing has an impressive history tracing back 70,000 years. It was once the ancient capital of three dynasties - Yuan, Ming and Qing. Although there are towering skyscrapers and busy shopping malls, you can still feel a strong authentic Beijing heartbeat around the hutong areas and when visiting the historical attractions. Stay in the luxury stylish boutique 'Red Capital Residence' rather romantically well-hidden, tucked away in an unassuming residential neighborhood. This 200-year-old courtyard residence, or hutong, in Beijing's Dongsi district, is entered through red doors complete with brass lion's-head knockers. Walls and doors gleam in red lacquer, and the courtyard oozes the rockeries of a traditional garden.
