Sights & Attractions in Beijing (China) Reviews
Newest Review: ... Then there's the Forbidden City, ancient home of the emperors and government. This costs £6 to get into the main complex, and you could wander round here for hours, though 2 hours were enough for me and my chum. We did these sights on a Saturday, and they were heaving with Chinese tourists. Going midweek, or out of season may be better. My personal highlights however weren't seeing the main sights and attractions of Bejing, but wandering around the hutongs, the backstreets, picking food off menus we couldn't understand (a fun, cheap, but potentially hazardous game). From Beijing it is very easy to get to the Great Wall. Tour compan... more

Wow, Beijing, where to start. Ok, the place is massive. Pack your walking shoes, and a rucksack to carry all the water you'll need to drink. There are attractions galore in Beijing, and unless you're some kind of martyr, accept that you can try and cram too much into a day. Some sights, like Tiananmen Square (free) can be "done" relatively quickly, however if you want to see Chairman Mao's body (also free), then add an hour or so on for queuing.

The reason I wanted to go to Beijing was I wanted to visit mainland China, but pick somewhere simple and safe for my first lone journey. A must see landmark for me in China was the Great Wall, so this made Beijing the ideal location for a first visit. It is the capital city of the People's Republic of China and you will require a visa to be admitted to the country (which takes about 10 days to get). Beijing is hosting the 2008 Olympic Games, at which point the price of everything for tourists is set to quadruple (when I went in 2007 everything was very reasonably priced). But if you are heading out for the Olympics then do not fear, as this is going to be one ... Read the complete review

Place of heavenly peace ... thats the english meaning of Tiananmen. It's kind of ironic that the place, where thousands of peacefull students died in the upset of 1989 has this name. Can we ever forget this pictures? As if I hear the words "Vietnam" or "Korea" I have to think of crying children with burned skin, thanks to US-american napalm, so if I hear "Tiananmen" I have to think of a lonly student in a white shirt, staying in front of 4 tanks. I was in Beijing in february of 1998 and also visited this place. It was a strange feeling. Me, grown up in the communistic part of Germany, faced with one of the greates crimes in ...
