Beijing is so rich in history and culture yet has the vibrancy of a city which has been reborn.

The Great Wall of China, has a number of sites, including the more touristic Badaling, and the more historically famous Mutainyu, where Cao Cao of the Three Kingdom period destroyed his enemy, Yuan Shao.

The Ming Tombs, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, the Yiheyuan (Summer Palace), Jingshan Park, Beihai Park, the Lama Temple, the hutongs, Yuanmingyaun (old Summer Palace destroyed by the Anglo-French forces under the command of Lord Elgin and Charles Gordon) and Prince Gong's Residence are not to be missed.

A day trip can be made to nearby cities of Tianjin and Chengde, or to see the Dream of Red Chamber Park (Daguanyuan) or the Peking Man excavation site at Zhoukoudian.
