The sound of the Nothern Cities:
Beijing, Datong and Pingyao, are renowned for their rich cultural heritage contrasted by the frantic pace of modernity. 

The majority of this library was recorded in Beijing, the capital city. There you can hear the hustle and bustle of daily life, with busy traffic on small streets and the outer rings, the crowds on bustling markets and touristic sites like the Forbidden City. But also the tranquil calm of the Great Wall in winter time.
Take a ride on the subway train from the airport and arrive at Tiananmen Square to be engulfed by a tourist crowd. Or listen to the happy chatter of locals playing games in the Ritan Park. Visit the old hutongs and enjoy the sparse voices in the narrow streets and alleys. Listen to electric vehicles whizzing by and the distant whooshes of traffic as the day settles. Finally settle down in a quiet restaurant with the staff cleaning up in the kitchen.
