Beijing Underground City (DiXiaCheng)
A 95-kilometer city lies beneath Beijing. Built between 1969-1979, during a period of Sino-Soviet tension, it was intended to house the area's population in case of enemy air raids. The complex even included daily necessities such as hairdressers and grocery stores. Visits are guided, but could be improved if the operators made re-creations of what underground life might have been like. What you do see is blocked-off tunnels and signs giving directions to Tiananmen Square , The Summer Palace and other locations. It is worth a visit as long as you use your imagination.

This attraction is very non touristy, and Im not sure why! 20RMB for a 30-45min tour of the underground city (lots of it is closed off but you still get a great feel to it) Abit of shopping can be done...souviners and silk mainly! I think it is a must see!
