Beijing

A dynamic capital city where the old and new intermingle, Beijing offers a mesmerizing mix of its illustrious past and its glistening future.

Moving at a furious pace, the city sprawls with apartment blocks, modern high-rise buildings, flashy billboards, endless stretches of freeway and amidst it all, many remnants from its 3,000 years of history.

There is so much to explore – from the imperial palaces, temples, mausoleums and awe-inspiring monuments to the ancient and enthralling hutongs, Beijing’s lively and well-preserved cultural heart.

Alongside these treasures, you’ll also find modern urban attractions, a contemporary arts scene, glitzy malls, huge markets and a colourful nightlife with an array of dining experiences.
