Beijing Travel FAQ

Top Places to Visit in Beijing

The Great Wall
The Great Wall, constructed in the seventh century BC, is regarded as one of human civilization's most significant construction projects. It is an aggregate term for a series of fortifications spanning 15 Chinese provinces. The Mutianyu Great Wall, Jinshanling Great Wall, etc., are currently the most well-known sections for tourists. Hiking along the Great Wall and seeing the fantastic watchtowers and breathtaking natural landscape, you may feel the incredible courage and wisdom of the ancient Chinese people.
  • Forbidden City
    This large complex served as the imperial palace of the Ming and Qing dynasties (1420 - 1912), covering an area of about 720,000 square meters. Strolling through the halls and corridors, you'll see the essence of traditional Chinese architecture.
  • Temple of Heaven

    Constructed in 1420, the Temple of Heaven served as the sacred place where the Ming and Qing dynasties' monarchs gave sacrifices to heaven and prayed there for a plentiful harvest. It was designated a "World Cultural Heritage" by UNESCO in 1998.

  • Summer Palace
    The landscape garden, now known as the "Imperial Garden Museum," is the world's best-preserved royal palace. The Kunming Lake and Longevity Hill comprise the garden's principal body, which is complementary and embodies the art of Chinese design.
  • Hutongs
    Hutongs are alleys formed by rows of conventional courtyard homes. Ride in a rickshaw or stroll across the streets, lined with little shops selling food, alcohol, and hair services, to get a taste of how the locals live their life.
