“This was our first group travel experience after many years of independent travel. We enjoyed not having to worry about ongoing
transport, accommodation and language issues. While we would have liked to stayed longer in some places, the tour enabled us to see sites we would have found difficult to visit independently. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday with World Expeditions.”

Beijing - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Beijing Travel Highlights

  • The largest palace compound in the world, the Forbidden City is a maze on UNESCO buildings that the dynasties of China once called home.
  • For a more contemporary view of Beijing, head to 798 Art District.
  • The Summer Palace is an oasis away from the city. Once catering to the Emperors of China, it is now one of the most peaceful and popular must-see sights in Beijing.
  • Lama Temple is the most magnificent Buddhist temple outside of Tibet.
  • Pānjiāyuán market is the place to go for souvenir shopping. Visit on weekends for the best selection of arts and crafts.
  • The National Museum of China is a humongous space filled with treasures. There’s no better place to scrub up on your knowledge of Ancient China.
  • No trip to Beijing is complete without a visit to the Great Wall of China.

Beijing Travel Tips

  • Beijing is huge, so allow for travel time between sight-seeing spots and be realistic with your to-do list.
  • Be aware of the often-low air quality in Beijing and plan accordingly. Smoggy days are best spent in the museums.
  • Avoid placing your chopsticks upright in a bowl of food, as this may cause offence.
  • September and October are the best months weather wise, but spring and winter are also lovely seasons to visit.
  • Dress appropriately for visits to religious sites to avoid being turned away.

Tours and Activities in Beijing

Beijing is the capital city and the political, educational, and cultural center of China. With a rich 3000-year-old history and a rapidly modernizing infrastructure, Beijing is a unique combination of the ancient and the ultra-modern. No other city in the nation attracts more travelers than does Beijing.

Top 3 attractions in Beijing:

  • No visit to Northern China is complete without a trip to the Great Wall. At over 21,000 km long, the wall has been described as the "Greatest Human Feat in History”. Built over a period from 206 BCE -1644 AD, the Longest Wall in the World is impressive, unbelievable and overwhelming.
  • Enter the Forbidden City - the largest palatial structure in the world. It was built between 1406 AD and 1420 AD and had been home to 24 emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties. You can see the royal courts, gardens and palaces, of which there are more than 90 in this 72-hectare complex.
  • Explore Tian'anmen Square – one of the largest public square in the world which can easily fit a million people. The Square is mainly composed of the National Flagpole in the north, the Monument to the People’s Heroes and the Mausoleum of Mao Zedong in the middle, the beautiful Zhengyang Gate in the south and is surrounded by a host of world class sights from the Forbidden City to China's National Museum.

Other things to do and see in Beijing:

  • China has a rich history and the museums in Beijing inform us about the accomplishments of this ancient civilization and important events in its long history. Popular museums include Beijing Capital Museum, National Museum, Beijing Museum of Natural History, the Chinese Aviation Museum, China National Film Museum, and China Science and Technology Museum.
  • A must-see for art buffs is the 798 Art District, also known as Dàshanzi. This vast area of disused factories built by the East Germans is Beijing’s main concentration of contemporary art galleries.
  • Satisfy your gastronomic curiosity by sampling some of Beijing’s cuisines like Jiaozi (Chinese Dumplings), Tudou Si (Shredded Potato), Mongolian Hotpot, Donkey Burger and Tuckahoe Pie; not forgetting Beijing’s best-known culinary export, the Peking Duck.
  • After a hectic day of sightseeing and tours, it’s a good time for a little spiritualty in one of dozens of Taoist and Buddhist temples in Beijing like the Temple of the Sun, Lama Temple, Jietai Temple, White Cloud Taoist Temple, the Temple of Heaven and Tanzhe Temple.

The Climate of Beijing:

  • Beijing has a dry, monsoon-influenced, humid continental climate
  • Summers (June-August) in Beijing are hot and humid. 75% of the annual precipitation is concentrated during this time of the year. The average high temperatures are 30°C and average low temperatures are 20° C.
  • Winters (December-February) are cold and dry with occasional snowfall. Average temperatures reach 3° C during the day and falls to -7.7° C overnight.
  • During the Spring and Autumn, the highs are 18-19° C in the afternoon with overnight lows of 6-7° C. These are the best times of the year to visit Beijing as the temperatures are mild with very little rain and plenty of sunshine.

Currency:

  • The official currency of China is Renminbi (Yuan) and most businesses will not accept foreign currencies. Those that do might give you a lower exchange-rate than the banks. Hence, it is advisable that you change currency beforehand.
  • China is predominantly a cash society so dealing in real money is the easiest and the most efficient way to do business. However, it is smart to carry a credit card (Visa or MasterCard) that can be used in China.

Beijing is and has always been important and highly influential in China's history. Every monument, building or structure has at least some historical significance. Beijing has been the capital of China for over 850 years and is one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China. A visit to Beijing is a trip through thousands of years of history, all the way to the present technological age.
