Visit Beijing: discover the soul of the Chinese capital
Heading to Beijing means heading into the unknown, to a destination that is as baffling as it is fascinating. Sprawling, vibrant and bustling day and night, the Chinese capital can quickly make your head spin. Once you are used to the time difference, set off on a discovery, from the Great Wall of China to the Forbidden City, from traditional neighbourhoods to the high-rise buildings. Visiting Beijing is an introduction to China, a gateway and a reflection of this vast country and its complex soul, an exciting blend of traditional and modern. What are you waiting for?!
Things to see and do in Beijing
Beijing has everything the curious traveller could wish for: the modern business district recognisable by its huge buildings and the history of the Great Wall of China and The Forbidden City, the buzz of the crowds and the serenity of the parks where the Chinese come to practice Tai chi... In the evening, watch the Changing of the Guard in the historic Tiananmen Square before taking a seat at a typical street food stall or in a large gourmet restaurant. Whether you are there for a day or a week, a visit to Beijing will delight couples, families, groups of friends and solo travellers. Whether you are here for business or pleasure, take the time to soak up the special atmosphere...
