You can't really go very far here in Beijing without bumping into a building site, the skeleton of some new high-rise complex or an (overly) ambitious mega mall. While the majority make it all the way to completion, others, for one reason or another, get left to wither away.
We recently took a trip around the abandoned Beijing Film Academy with Brin from Burbex
, a guy who knows a thing or two about the city's darkest disused and deserted structures, having made his way into forgotten malls, theme parks, Olympic sites and more during his years in the capital. After our little saunter into the Film Academy, Brin let us in on
his five favourite urbex sites here in Beijing.
