-It's hot town summer in the city...
As the temperature warms up in the capital city, China Daily multimedia reporter D J Clark went out to capture some scenes of Beijing's old and new. Starting at 4am, as dawn broke on top of his apartment building, DJ took his bike and made his way from Olympic Park through the old city to Tian'anmen Square and onto the Central Business District. He finished in a tall building overlooking the CCTV tower and the China World Trade Center.
