Top tour activities in Beijing

You can certainly make your trip to this great city more worthwhile by not missing the most important things to do here. The following should part of your itinerary:

  • Visit its top attractions - Because of the close proximity of the city’s top attractions, it would be manageable for you to tour the city with the right package. You can start your exploration at Tiananmen Square, which hosts the National Museum of China and the Forbidden City, and the retreat to the lush green spaces of the Summer Palace or Beihai Park. You can also visit the Dashanzi Art District and Nanluoguxiang neighborhood for some urban adventures. And oh, do not forget the Great Wall!
  • Explore the 798 Art District - Explore a vast area of disused factories constructed by the East Germans, which has become the main concentration of contemporary art galleries in the city. This industrial complex dates back to the communist heyday of the 1950s through the Maoist slogans that decorate its walls and the statues of burly, lantern-jawed workers that dot its lanes.
  • Have a drink at the Emperor Hotel Bar - At the trendy and airy 55-room hotel perched just opposite the east gate of the Forbidden City, you will find a rooftop bar, called Yin, which you should not miss. Having a drink here at dusk will give you a magical view of the vast former residence of the Emperor.

  • The Forbidden City - This historic place housed 24 emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties and is regarded as the best preserved imperial palace in the country, not to mention the world’s largest ancient palatial structure.
  • The Great Wall of China - As you may have already known, this grand wall extends up to 4,000 miles, with several sections around Beijing, including rugged and restored sections. The most popular sections to visit here include Jinshanling, Mutianyu and Jiankou.
  • The Summer Palace - This palace is regarded as the best-preserved imperial garden in the world and the biggest of its kind still existing in modern China. It represents the traditional Chinese garden, where you get to appreciate the artificial landscape first created centuries ago.
