In the midst of a quickly modernizing city lie wonders of an ancient world. Make your way to Beijing, China and let yourself be mesmerized.
The Great Wall of China is one of the seven wonders of the modern world with meandering relics covering nearly 9,000 kilometers from east to west, offering breathtaking views. Built over several dynasties and almost 2,000 years old, portions have been beautifully restored for visitors to explore. The popular Badalang segment is accessible right from Beijing and the nearby town of Mutianyu presents a less crowded experience with an escape from the throngs of tourists. A honeymoon in the city of Beijing is a dream for couples interested in discovering a distinctly exotic culture. History enthusiasts will love the mysterious and otherworldly feel of the Forbidden city, which was the emperor’s quarter and off limits to the population for 500 years. Romantics can aimlessly explore the Hutongs in search of signature Chinese dishes and teahouses while the more adventurous can have a taste of strange critters at the night market.
Spring and fall are the best times to visit Beijing. Summers are excruciatingly hot and winters are cold and bitter. Although these events can be exciting, during public holidays and festivals, attractions tend to be swamped with people.
