Beijing

At the heart of China is Beijing; capital, cultural centre and historical treasure trove are just a few of the guises of this magnificent mega city. A progressive and modern place that is growing at an explosive rate, you may have to peel back to the layers of history to find the three millennia of a tumultuous but glorious past beneath.

Beijing has been a political centre for 800 years, the last of the 4 Great Ancient Capitals of China. Huge sights such as the Forbidden City, Temples of Heaven and Summer Palace perfectly illustrated the great wealth of China’s imperial families, whilst the stark austerity of Tiananmen Square and the executive buildings surrounding it are a monument to more recent history. Whilst some traditions such as dawn tai chi and dancing in urban parks have never died, modernity rules here but the past is in the midst of a rival. Today, old culture and pop culture vie for their place on the streets. Beijing is the gateway to China and the perfect place to begin your explorations.
