Things To Do in Beijing

Forbidden City
4.8/5

UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site    
Palace
A vast majority of tourists who visit Beijing for the first time consider the Forbidden City as a place they must see. The Forbidden City, known as Gugong in Mandarin, once served as the imperial palace for 24 emperors during the Ming and Qing dynasties. It is a symbol of ancient China. Although it is no longer China's political centre, you can still feel its former glory once you are within the courtyard and surrounded by the high walls. Its long history has left behind a large amount of precious architecture and cultural relics, making it one of the most important cultural heritage in modern China.
Summer Palace
4.7/5
33,707 Reviews
Garden
Situated in the Haidian District northwest of Beijing, the Summer Palace is a Unesco World Heritage site that used to be the palace and garden of the emperors of the Qing Dynasty. It is the largest and most well preserved royal park in China. Construction of the palace began in 1750 and it served as a residential and entertainment area for the royal members. The palace underwent two major reconstructions after suffering damages during invasions by the Anglo-French Allied Forces and the Eight-Power Allied Forces during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Summer Palace can be divided into three sectors: a political activity area centered at the Hall of Benevolence and Longevity; an empress living area concentrated around the Hall of Jade Billows and Hall of Joy and Longevity; and a tour route concentrated along the long corridor, rear hill, and the west sector.
Badaling Great Wall
4.6/5
27,134 Reviews
UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site    
The Great Wall of Badaling in Yanqing, Beijing, is a pass for the Ming Great Wall. As the saying goes, "you are not a hero until you reach the Great Wall". Most locals take this spot to be the start of the ascent of the Great Wall. The Badaling Great Wall is the best-preserved and most complete section among the various great walls in Beijing. The total length of this sectionn is 7.5 miles (12 kilometers) with 43 watchtowers, however only 2.3 miles (3.74 kilometers) and 19 watchtowers have been restored and opened to visitors. Compared with other sections, most stairs are not very steep and they are equipped with handrails, so it is a relatively easier climb.
Beijing Wildlife Park
4.7/5
17,383 Reviews
Zoo
Beijing Wildlife Park is home to more than 200 species of wild animals. When you come to the park, you can watch exciting animal performances such as bear acrobatics, monkey cycling, and lion loop-jumping. In the free-range area in the park, tourists can feed animals through the iron bars. But beware! Do not extend your hands to the other side of the cage! The Beijing Wildlife Park also has a bird pavilion where you can see many beautiful birds such as flamingos and peacocks, as well as parrots capable of conversing with people. It is a very intriguing experience!
