Great Wall of China

The last world wonder still standing - the Great Wall of China should definitely be on the itinerary for any traveller to Beijing. The Wall has many entrances, some more scenic and secluded than others - we recommend the Mutianyu point for a more interesting experience. Expect to walk a lot and dedicate the whole day to the journey. A taxi or Uber to the entrance should do the trick unless you go with an organized tour which can be set up at any Beijing hotel.

Tiananmen Square

A grand square in the center of Beijing not to be missed on a first visit to the city. Visit in the day and later for some amazing night lights of this magical city.
