There kinda are a few more cities in China besides Shanghai, I guess.
Beijing is safe and easily explored on foot and by using public transportation.
Local and regional history, economics, art and cuisine provide unlimited material for exploring Chinese language and culture.
It's impossibly crispy, essentially fried, bread generously stuffed with gamey, cherry-red meat and absolutely no fillers. You can find one at: ADD: Zong Du Fu (Donkey Inside) is at 277 Dongzhimen Neidajie, Beixinqiao Station, Exit B. The rise in popularity in craft beer is probably the single biggest trend in Cap City F&B in the last few years, with a basic ratio these days of 1:1 craft beer bars per city residents.
If you're in Gulou, there's one at 206 Gulou Xi Dajie, and we also like this one right here: ADD: Sancun Chuar Fang, at Tianshuiyuan Dongli 12-2 (just south of the diabetics hospital). The English translation of shaobing or huoshao as “burger” isn't quite accurate; it's more like a very crispy, unleavened pita-like bread topped with seasame seeds. Anyway, the zhaopai huoshao ("specialty donkey burger", 12rmb or thereabouts) is what you're filling up on.
For everything else, there's chuan'r, which is impossible to get tired of, cheap, and delicious.
They both have their unique character traits that make them inspiring, frustrating, wonderful, heinous, the best places in China, and the worst places in the world. (I like Hua's, incidentally, which is a nice mid-tier sort of place on Ghost Street.) We're also assuming you can make your way to Sanlitun is case you need Western food -- that's basically where it all is.
One thing all Chinese cities have in common is that they change very rapidly.
