You will find many outstanding sights in and near Beijing. Many of them are UNESCO World Heritage sites, such as the Great Wall, Former imperial Palace, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace, and the ruins of Peking Man at Zhoukoudian. The imperial palaces, mansions, gardens and tombs are examples of classical Chinese architecture. There are as many as 120 museums worth seeing and more than 100 gardens are open to the public. On the other hand, Beijing's skyline looks very modern with a lot of new skyscrapers, like the Central TV Tower.

For more pictures and more information, please have a look at my Beijing page.
