Visits

  • Tiananmen Square: the Square of The Gate of Heavenly Peace is the original gate of the Forbidden City. Thousands of people visit the Square everyday. It has borne witness to a great deal of modern history, including the June 4th massacre of students in 1989 and is the recognised location of where Chairman Mao Zedong declared the establishment of the People’s Republic of China on October 1, 1949.
  • The Palace Museum: a national museum housed in the Forbidden City which was built on the imperial collection of the Ming and Qing dynasties, expanded in the 20th century with new acquisitions and archaeological discoveries.
  • TheTemple of Heaven: originally the place where emperors of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) and Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911) held the Heaven Worship Ceremony, this is China's largest and most representative existing ancient sacrificial buildings.
  • Great Wall Ba Da Ling: the site of the most visited section of the Great Wall of China. The portion of the wall running through the site was built in 1504 during the Ming Dynasty, along with a military outpost reflecting the location's strategic importance.
  • Olympic Park with visit to Bird’s Nest & Water Cube: otherwise known as Bird's Nest, this was designed as the main stadium of 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
  • The Flying Acrobatic Show: performed by highly-trained Chinese acrobats and circus performers, features amazing feats, beautiful choreography and a kaleidoscope of colour from contortionist acts to high wire stunts.
  • The Summer Palace is the largest and most well-preserved royal park in China: It greatly influences Chinese horticulture and landscape and is famous for its views.
  • The Tang Dynasty Dinner Show: a combination of a traditional Chinese dumpling banquet and the fabulous Tang Dynasty dance and music. Tang Dynasty (618 - 907AD) was the most prosperous dynasty in Chinese history and also the climax of China’s development in music and dance.
  • The Terracotta Army and Craft Museum: one of the world’s greatest archaeological finds, the Terracotta Warriors were discovered quite by chance in 1974 by a group of peasants who were digging a well on the outskirts of Xi’an. See sculptures of soldiers, chariots and horses, which were funerary statues made to accompany China’s first Emperor, Qin Shi Huang, to the afterlife.
