Reasons to Visit

Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China was built over more than two thousand years. Construction on the first section began between the 7th and 6th century BC, and the last work on the wall was done between the 14th and 17th centuries. It is one of the Great Wonders from the world and is said to be the only man made object visible from space.

Forbidden City (Beijing)

The Forbidden City was the former imperial palace, which was the home to twenty four Chinese emperors over 491 years between 1420 and 1911. The Forbidden City is now known as the Palace Museum and is open to Beijing’s visitors. Wear comfortable walking shoes as the palace is 960 meters long and 750 meters wide.

Tiananmen Square (Beijing)

Tiananmen Square was the original gate to the Imperial Palace, and has been burnt down and rebuilt many times between 1417 and 1651. Today, it is remembered as the place where Mao Tse-Tung declared the foundation of the Peoples Republic of China (1949) and more recently was the scene of the 1989 Massacre.

Temple of Heaven (Beijing)

The Temple of Heaven was completed in 1420, but has been expanded over the years by two Qing Dynasty Emperors. Quinian Hall, the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests, with the three blue tiled cone shaped roofs, has become a worldwide symbol of Beijing.

With about 1,500 stalls, the market is much bigger than the former street, selling bags, cases, shoes, silk goods and Chinese paintings traditional crafts.

Friendship Store (Beijing)

In the 1980s, every major town had a Friendship Store. The chain was started in the late 50s as a sign of friendship between the Chinese and foreigners when China first opened to the outside world. The Friendship stores have now evolved into a six-story department store selling foreign and domestic goods that welcomes everyone.

The Oriental Pearl Tower stands by the bank of Huangpu River. The tower is 468 metres high and is the highest TV Tower in Asia and the third highest one in the world.
