For a long time, Beijing has been called Old Beijing within the Second Ring Road. Niu School, Financial Street, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven Modern landmarks and historic sites together form the second ring spirit – natural pride. If we say that the second ring road is the most undisputed core area in Beijing. Here, you can not only enjoy the fireworks of modern life, but also feel the heritage left by history. Therefore, to some extent, living in the Second Ring Road is living in Beijing. In the old Beijing within the Second Ring Road, it was the real imperial city in the feudal era.
It is the Concord, the Temple of Heaven and the Jingshan, and you can go to Tiananmen when you have nothing to do… Not only that, but also, it is particularly worth mentioning that the second ring road of Beijing, China’s first fully closed, fully overpass, and no traffic lights, is born here. Located at the core of Beijing’s road network, the Second Ring Road is built around the old city, with a total length of 32.7 kilometers and 29 overpasses. The whole line is an urban expressway with full interchanges. As the Second Ring Road is very close to the city center, it is the most restricted road among the existing ring roads in Beijing and the only ring road that is not directly connected with the expressway.
For the former foot of the imperial city of Beijing, now the core area of Beijing and the bustling downtown, the Second Ring Road can really be described as an inch of land and an inch of gold.
