After months of construction, the new Drum & Bell Tower Square has suddenly and unexpectedly been unveiled a week ahead of schedule…and it’s better than we thought!
Seemingly entirely pedestrianised, the Disneyland/Qianmen style shopping nightmare we had envisioned for the edges of the square doesn’t seem to have materialised. Instead the space is bigger, a little more landscaped and a LOT less commercial.
Beijing – you’ve (pleasantly) surprised us.
