New Year Countdown in Beijing

New Year Countdown at Beijing Imperial Ancestral Temple, located just next to the Forbidden City in the heart of the capital city.

Unlike previous New Year’s Eves, the Beijing authorities have reportedly cancelled the traditional light shows in both the China Millennium Monument as well as a large shopping mall called “The Place” due to safety concerns.

Meanwhile, Shanghai has also cancelled its traditional countdown event at the Bund due to a fatal stampede on the New Year’s Eve in 2014.
