The Forbidden City, which is no more forbidden, hosts about 15 million people every year. You’ll need several couples of hours to visit the whole Forbidden City that once was the home to the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Don’t panic about its size! Take your time to see around 8000 different rooms in this 180-acres place.
The architectural magnificence and historical magnitude of the Great Wall of China, have made it a must-seeing tourist attraction of Beijing. Around 10 million people annually visit the Great Wall of China that once protected the Chinese empire.
It’s about 21196 kilometers. Don’t worry! You’re not supposed to climb over 30 million steps. Most tourists only walk about 5000 steps, which is about 4-6 kilometers. It takes about 18 months to walk this long wall.
However, walking on one of the Seven Wonders of the World will be the high point of your journey, but retain in your mind that not all sections of the wall are worthy of seeing. Avoid spending time visiting the Badaling section of the wall, which is merely a tourist trap. If you’re on for adventure and hiking, so head to the Jinshanling, Simatai, or Gubeikou sections of the wall.
Your journey to Beijing must begin from Tiananmen Square, which is the heart of China. Remember that tourists are not the only ones dreaming of visiting Chinese landmarks.
Before sunrise is the best time to make it to the square, not miss the daily flag-raising ceremony, the Monument to the People’s Heroes, the Mausoleum of Mao Zedong, and the Great Hall of the People are pompous landmarks here.
The Summer Palace is famous for its harmony with nature and its landscaped gardens, pavilions, and temples built to amuse the eyes. The best time to visit this Chinese masterpiece is the fall when colors are changing. Place it atop the list of things to do in Beijing.
The Temple of Heaven, or Tian Tan, is the forefather of all temples in Beijing where the Ming and Qing emperors came here to sacrifice. It represents cosmological symbolism and symbolism in China.
