If you are in Beijing, probably you will visit the Palace Museum.
Attached is a link of 100x episodes of 6min each on the "little" things that may interest you and be on the look-out during the visit, making the trip fruitful:

And if are interested in the long history of the Palace, these are the links in 3 parts:

Just a note that many rooms has been sealed. In the 80s they were still not sealed up. If you want to do some model shoots in the imperial palace, you can check out the replica of the imperial palace in Hengdian, Zhejiang province.

i was there 3 months ago, on most days the smog is about 150~200 plus, the skies were hazy, and it is not burning smoke but pollutants from factories, do make sure u dun get drench in the rain, the rainwater washes down the industrial pollutants in the air and it can be toxic.

there was a public holiday lasting a week, think is APEC, and factories and many office buildings were closed. No smog, clear blue skies entire day
