Celebrating 25 Years of tour excellence

Beijing is the capital of the People's Republic of China. Its name literally translates as 'northern capital' due to its location on the north China plain and is one of the four Ancient Capitals of the Middle Kingdom. It has been the Chinese capital for most of the previous 500 years with the Forbidden City as the seat of power during the Ming and Qing Dynasties.

You’ll find seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites here, so Beijing is a real historical treasure trove, filled with imperial palaces, religious structures, and political relics.

It is also a city of contrasts, where the medieval hutong lanes nestle under the towering skyscrapers of the modern urban centre; where the bustling, vibrant roads clash with the serene calm of the Houhai Lakes; where the majestic Great Wall sits peacefully amongst lush vegetation to the north of the city.

Beijing has a seasonal climate, giving the city four distinct seasons. Spring and autumn offer the most pleasant weather for sightseeing; with clear, blue skies, cooling breezes and warm temperatures. Winter, though a bit chillier, offers the clearest skies all year round, perfect for any camera enthusiast.

Whenever you visit, Beijing has something for you!
