Landmark Tourist Spot
Wudaokou, whose name is a literal reference to the fifth level crossing of the Jingbao Railway, is a neighborhood in the Haidian District of North West Beijing. It is around 10km from the center of Beijing, between the Fourth and Fifth ring roads, and has good public transport links including a train station on Line 13 (the CityRail line) of the Beijing Subway. It became a commercial center in Haidian during the 1950s following the establishment of several universities. The high price of real estate in this area has led to it being dubbed the "Center of the Universe(宇宙中心)." Until as recently as 2001 the area consisted mainly of Hutong neighborhoods and late 1960s apartment blocks, but major development has erased many of these old structures, replacing them with luxury apartments and technology parks. Some may also refer to Wudaokou as Koreatown, for the large number of Koreans in the area.LocationWudaokou is close to a large number of universities and research institutes, including Tsinghua University, Beijing Language and Culture University, Beihang University, Peking University, China University of Geosciences, University of Science and Technology Beijing, and Beijing Forestry University, and as such has a large student population. Google's China office is also located here.

  • As a small-town daehaggaga off the attractions at affordable prices such as the price and the dining room was more local and see if you have the time to get to a good place to stop by for meals.

  • A vibrant place, full of multinational people. You can enjoy great international food for all budgets, shop in many different locations and enjoy a glimpse of night life as well, all in one place!  more »
  • It's an area where a lot of universities are located. So in the evenings and weekends one can see tons of students drinking cheap alcohol in the bars and clubs. Nothing interesting to see or do  more »
