Witness and immerse yourself in the colourfully busy city life of China’s capital and highlight municipality, Beijing. One of the most populous cities in the world, Beijing is home to 20 million people, and is the country’s political, educational and cultural center. If one is to experience China, Beijing should be the first on any tourists’ list, as it is the home to China’s finest legacies, from ancient and historic all-time cultural landmarks to the vastly postmodern monuments that this country has been notably praised for.
At the heart of Beijing is The Forbidden City, China’s imperial palace that was home to twenty-four emperors from the 1300s to the 1600s. Listed as a World Cultural Heritage Site since 1987, the Palace Museum houses numerous rare and ancient treasures that has now made this destination one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world.
Scale the world’s largest and longest man-made structure ever built: the Great Wall of China. This famous wonder of the world has been there even since the 5th century BC, but many don’t realize that there are actually two layers of walls built in separate dynasties, the older one located farther up north.
Get to see also the Olympic Green Common Domain, home to 10 Olympic venues and stadiums, including the National Stadium and the National Aquatics Center, as well as non-competition facilities such as the Main Press Center and the International Broadcast Center. Expect a unique blend of cultural landscape art as this highly lively destination hosts colorful cultural activities such as stage performances and exhibitions.
The National Aquatics Center, also found in the domain, is fondly known as the Water Cube. Alongside the uniquely constructed Birds Nest stadium, these two structures catapulted Beijing and China back into the world spotlight since the 2008 Olympics, proudly providing breathtaking spectacles for Chinese citizens and tourists alike for their magnificent architectural design.
Let’s not forget the shopping excitement in Wangfujing Street. Lined with many large department stores and souvenir boutiques, Wangfujing is also home to two modern shopping malls, complete with high class restaurants, cafes, cinemas, electronics and more. One of these, the Oriental Plaza, is known for being one of the biggest malls in Asia, stretching over a few city blocks. This famous shopping district is also a fond destination for large exhibitions and festivals.
