Attraction of Beijing


Forbidden City

The magnificent Forbidden City is the largest and the best-preserved imperial palace complex in the world. It has 9,999 rooms in flourishing period with just a single room short of the number that ancient Chinese belief represents 'Divine Perfection' and surrounded by a moat six meters deep and ten-meter high wall. For five centuries, this palace functioned as the administrative center of the country.
 

Great Wall in Beijing

The Great Wall of China is one of the 'Eight Wonders of the World' and is enlisted in the World Heritage Directory. This immense wall was built to keep out invaders as well as to retain the inhabitants. It spans five provinces from Shanhaiguan Pass in the east to Jiayuguan Pass in the west, looking like a gigantic dragon across deserts, grasslands and mountains. In the downtown area of Beijing, it is possible to climb Badaling Great Wall.
 

Tiananmen Square

The solemn and respectful Tiananmen Square is the largest central city square in the world, which serves not only Beijing's symbol but also the whole of China. This immense courtyard is the site of various historical events, which is surrounded by a variety of significant edifices such as the Great Hall of the People, the Mao Zedong Memorial Hall and the Monument to the People's Heroes.
 

Imperial Gardens & Mausoleums

Beijing is the capital city of several Dynasties. Therefore, besides the spectacular imperial palaces, it also possesses the most luxurious royal gardens—the well-preserved Summer Palace with an area of 727 acres, the elegant Beihai Park and the destroyed Old Summer Palace. On the other hand, those Emperors also constructed spectacular mausoleums for themselves. The Ming Tombs of the 13 emperors should be the most excellent necropolis.
 

Beijing Zoo

The Beijing Zoo is a wonderful place to watch Chinese families enjoy a Sunday afternoon outing. Among the Zoo's attractions are its collection of pandas and a very large aquarium.
 

Beihai Park

One of the most famous and beautiful parks in Beijing, Beihai is also one of the earliest examples of Asian-style gardening in the world.

The park served as an imperial garden during the Liao Dynasty, over 800 years ago. After rounds of rebuilding and restoration, including a large scale refurbishment during the reign of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty, the park took on its present look.
 

Fayuan Temple

Fayuan Temple, located in Fayuansihou Street, Xuanwu District of Beijing, is the oldest existing temple in Beijing. Covering an area of 6,700 square meters, it was built in the 19th year (645) of the Zhenguan reign of the Tang Dynasty (618-907) by Li Shimin (Tang Emperor Taizong) to commemorate officers and soldiers dead in battles. The temple was renovated in 1955, and now it is the site of the Chinese Buddhist Academy and the exhibition center for Buddhist cultural relics.
 

Chuandixia Village

A picturesque mountain village, 3 hours' drive from Beijing through winding mountain valleys. The ancient walled courtyard houses and alleys clamber up the hillside, and have remained largely unchanged for centuries. Many of the families (all descended from the original founder) open their homes to provide meals for visitors.
