Welcome to Beijing!
Ancient history meets modern flair in this sprawling capital city. Once the home of incredibly wealthy dynasties, they have left behind beautifully preserved palaces, royal gardens and temples that are truly the crown jewels of the city. Make your way through bustling street markets to browse for everything from fine silks to one-of-a-kind antiques, and you can't leave the city without trying the famous peking roast duck. Just a short bus ride away, one of the Seven Great Wonders of the World - the Great Wall of China - winds through the Chinese mountains and countryside.
