ATTRACTIONS

 


A wonderful place to visit, Summer Palace has many scenic areas that live up to it being China's largest imperial garden.  In the spring, a beautiful field of flowers in a great place for picnics or go past the boat to a slightly wooded area for a beautiful view of the Palace and lake.  It's an inexpensive place to visit that's well worth the money to get in.  Nearby Fragrant Hills is also a nice place to visit with hiking/walking trails.

The Forbidden City, also known as Imperial Palace Museum, is of course a popular place to go.  As its name implies, the Imperial Palace was a forbidden place for those not of the imperial family or court, which makes it even more intriguing to Westerners. South of the Forbidden City is Tiananmen Square, made more interesting due to the student protests that occurred in 1989.  In the spring, it's also the place to go for seeing magnificent kites being flown.

There are many temples in Beijing to be seen, the most notable being the Temple of Heaven which is found in Tian Tan Park.  Located in southern Beijing, the Temple of Heaven is a public park that is considered to be one of the the most beautiful temple complex, with its two ceremonial buildings, which are circular in shape with blue-tiled roofs.

The renovated Badaling Great Wall  is another popular place to visit, but a trip to the Simitai Great Wall is a great experience, particularly for those who like things "untouched."  The Ming Tombs are where most emperors are buried from the Ming Dynasty.
