Chinas massive capital city is unsurprisingly filled with a rich history for you to explore in your time there. The longest Wonder of the World, the Great Wall of China is accessible from Beijing. Although you could look to walk the 21,000km of the wall if you wanted to, you would miss out on the other Beijing attractions! There is the Forbidden City, the palace from historical dynasties. The Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven are other options for exploring the past also.
Although it’s a lot more recent, the Beijing Olympic Park, the venue of the 2008 summer Olympics is another place to see with its iconic “Birds Nest” stadium. Art galleries can be found in the 798 Art Zone if you’d prefer, or the Houhai Lake (Back Lake) scenic area if a bit of nature is what you’re after. Whatever you want to do in Beijing, find the best accommodation for you over at Hotels.com or Booking.com.
