Clang Clang! A tram full of tourists move through the night in Bei­jing. Re­cently, Bei­jing Pub­lic Trans­port launched two night tourism tours where vis­i­tors can take the an­tique “clang clang” tram to en­joy the cap­i­tal’s at­trac­tions. The doors, win­dow frames, floors and handrails of the trams are coated with wood-like ma­te­rial and the large win­dows give the vis­i­tors a clear view of the sights. The tours cover Nan­lu­ogux­i­ang, Shicha­hai and his­tor­i­cal and cul­tural sites such as Tian’an­men Square, China Cen­tral TV Tower as well as the Bei­jing’s Cen­tral Busi­ness District. Both tours start from Qian­men sta­tion, with the West tour at 7:30 pm and the East one at 8 pm.
