Beijing

Trip Planner Asia  /  China  /  Beijing
As the political and cultural capital of China, Beijing stands at the heart of Chinese history, buzzing with the energy of its high population density and centuries of importance. Your Beijing itinerary should reflect the grandiosity of its reputation and its role on the national and international stage, with outings to monuments like the nearby sections of the Great Wall, the central square, the national museums, and the imperial temples and palaces. But a trip to Beijing should also be enjoyed on the human scale of the millions of people who call it home. Sample the various Chinese cuisines aggregated in the city's restaurants, visit the zoos and parks, and ride the extensive, English-friendly subway system that connects the far flung points of this vast, fast-paced city. Plan your vacation with our China trip maker site and discover the best things to do in Beijing.

Where to stay in Beijing

Beijing offers accommodations to suit the needs of every traveler, with clean, affordable hostels open to foreign backpackers, practical mid-range hotels for the business trip and group tour, and luxury four- and five-star hotels available at reasonable prices.
