Mountains border three sides of Beijing, a flat metropolis which is home to more than 20 million people. But no amount of steely modernity can hide its status as China’s former imperial capital. The sights are world famous and include the Forbidden City, a 250-acre complex of courtyards, palaces, pavilions and gardens, the emperors’ palace, and, of course, the Great Wall.
As well as experiencing Beijing's world-famous landmarks, join us and you'll have the chance to explore the hidden side streets and meet the Beijing’s people. Hop on a rickshaw and experience a ride around the ancient alleyways, and enjoy a traditional Be My Guest lunch with a Chinese family.
