One of the amazing thing of the Spring Festival in Beijing in the past was the fireworks on the streets. It’s like fighting against an  invasion of giant monster. The fireworks are full of fire and smoke. It’s very lively and exciting. It’s like watching a street war against Nian the beasts.

However, due to the serious air pollution caused by such overflowing, the fireworks now  have been forbidden downtown by the government.The spectacular look like this has become a memory for a generation. To experience such a grand occasion, the opportunity may have to be in the suburbs outside the Fifth Ring!
