Beijing Vacations

The Chinese city of Beijing was the latest host of the Olympic Games. The Forbidden City Palace is at the centre of the city, as is Tianenman Square. The Great Wall of China is also near to the city. Flights to Beijing are available with Air China, from cities including New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The flight time from New York to Beijing is around 13 hours and 30 minutes, with flights from Los Angeles taking around 12 hours. www.visitbeijing.com.cn contains further information on the city.

The capital of the People's Republic of China, Beijing (formerly Peking) is a very modern and exceedingly busy city (nearly 14 million people call it home) with high-rise buildings, international hotels and sprawling suburbs. The city is abuzz and bristling with cranes on the skyline as construction projects give rise to new skyscrapers and modernisation proceeds apace. However, Beijing also encompasses numerous attractions of cultural and historical interest, of which some, such as the Great Wall, former Imperial palace (known as the Forbidden City), the Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace and the remains of Peking Man at Zhoukoudian, are UNESCO-endorsed World Cultural Heritage Sites.

 

 

Beijing Attractions

 

Tiananmen Square Beijing

The famous square at the heart of Beijing, recently renovated, is still not much to look at, but it attracts curious tourists simply because it was the scene of so many historic events and is the largest city square in the world.

 

The Great Wall Beijing

Several sections of the Great Wall of China, a man-made phenomenon that has become a symbol of Chinese civilisation, can be viewed in the Beijing area.

 

The Summer Palace Beijing

The magnificent Summer Palace in northwest Beijing at Kunming Lake was built in 1750 by the Emperor Qianlong, and continued to be an imperial residence until the Empress Dowager Cixi died in 1908.
