I think this must be the very first place to visit when arriving to Beijing. This ancient place is so huge!! Bring comfortable shoes and a lot of water. I walked it all and at the end my feet were hurting but I didn't care, I wanted to walk it again. It was built from 1406 to 1420 by Ming dinasty. In 1987 it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is an amazing place! It has also a souvenir store where you can have a picture taken with the nephew of the last Emperor (by buying one of his paintings of course)

Address: North of Tiananmen Square
