"Beijing" China Things to Do Tip by graeme83

China Things to Do: 765 reviews and 1,190 photos


Beijing was my arrival point in to China, and WOW what a city it is. I hadn't done much research about the place before I arrived - I simply brought a book about China with me and read it on the plane. According to this book "Beijing is recognised as the political, educational, and cultural center of the People's Republic of China." However, that doesn't prepare you for the scale of the place. Everything I saw was BIG, from the Forbidden Palace to Tianammen Square to the Summer Palace. I spent 10 days in Beijing and barely scratched the surface.
