With 6 UNESCO World Heritage sites, famous architecture, and some of the best food on the planet, this fast-developing Chinese city has got a lot on offer. And with the 2022 Winter Olympics around the corner, Beijing is set to become one of the most visited cities on the planet. Brightsun Travel has put together some incredible exclusive holidays to Beijing so that you get to see the very best that the city has to offer this holiday. Touring Beijing’s long and exotic history, you could visit some of the most iconic attractions on the planet, all in a few days. Here you can take a cable car over the Great Wall of China, or take scenic hiking routes through mountains and villages. Or, visit Tiananmen Square, the world’s largest public square, and explore a place of enormous political importance in China. Then onto Beijing’s Palaces. You could start at the Lama Temple (a former royal residence) and experience an active place of worship in the city, or spend an afternoon at the Forbidden City, the largest palace complex in the world, exploring gardens and regularly changing exhibitions in its galleries and museums. End up at the Summer Palace and enjoy incredible views over the city.
But more than history, Beijing offers a contemporary urban culture that’s changing by the second. With a trendy Arts District, new restaurants opening up every week and a fast-changing urban landscape that’s getting ready to host the Olympic games in 2022, Beijing could keep you entertained for weeks. Take a tour of the city’s architecture and admire impressive futuristic buildings, like the CCTV building or ‘Big Pants’, the Galaxy Soho building, and the National Olympic Stadium. Or take a culinary tour through old Hutong neighbourhoods, like Dashilar, and you will find cool bars and experimental restaurants in crumbling old buildings. Head to the centre of Beijing’s art scene in the 798 Art District and discover industrial complexes housing cutting edge galleries, and modern hotels in former factories. And when it comes to trips outside the city, you could take advantage of Beijing’s high speed train network, and, in less than 5 hours, find yourself amongst 8000 Terracotta Warriors in Xi’an.
