Beijing

Many think of Beijing is as the political, educational, and cultural hub of China. It's also the historical centre for all that we think of as distinctly Chinese. This 3000 year old city is one of the oldest in the world, with a wealth of historical sites that rank high on most tourist's must-see lists. The Forbidden City, The Great Wall, The Summer Palace, and even the city's hidden hutongs, make for enthralling exploration.
