What to see and do in Beijing?
Go to the Forbidden City. This huge palace complex was built between 1406 and 1420, but was burnt down, rebuilt, and renovated countless times. What you see today is mostly from the 18th century and onwards during the Qing Dynasty. Enter Jingshan Park, climb to get a panoramic view of the Imperial Palace.
Watch the lowering ceremony of the Chinese national flag at sunset and sunrise at Tiananmen Square. Arrive 30 minutes before to get a good seat. A visit to Beijing is not complete before you hike one of the sections of the Great Wall, and it’s great if your vacation in the city is short.
Visit the Olympic sites, watch the Beijing Opera, and take the whole family to the Panda House. The animal houses at the Beijing Zoo spread over 40,000 square meters. There are plenty of museum, local markets, and stunning dining options that will change everything you think that you know about Chinese food.
