Wudaokou, Beijing

(45+ reviews on the web)
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. 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 Peking University, Tsinghua University, Beihang University, Beijing Language and Culture University, Beijing Forestry University, University of Science and Technology Beijing, and China University of Geosciences, and as such has a large student population. Google's China office is also located here.
