Visiting Beijing

Lion watching the forbidden cityNo tour of China would be complete without a visit to its capital City of Beijing.
From this point, visitors can tour the ancient Forbidden City, one of the most famous sites in the city. Once the home of the Emperor of China, the Forbidden City shares numerous ancient buildings in a maze of passageways for visitors to see how the emperor lived.

Also in Beijing, travelers can drive out to the Great Wall of China and take a sky car up to the wall on the top of the mountainside. Portions of the wall can be seen for many miles; the total length is around 3000 miles. Beijing is also an excellent shopping city with stores both large and small as well as local bazaars.
