Beijing is the throbbing, bustling capital of China. First populated way back in the 11th Century BCE, Beijing has been the hub of China for three millennia and has evolved into the incredibly modern city that it is today. It controls the whole country and little goes on without Beijing's authority.
It's a great place to visit as a traveller, as there's a huge amount to see and do. Take a tour of the Forbidden City and learn about the history of the Ming Dynasty, or discover the wonders of the Summer Palace. With so much on offer we recommend you allowing yourself plenty of time in this amazing city, it's worth allowing yourself a few extra days here before or after a trip with us.
