Beijing Flights Guide


Before the 2008 Olympics Beijing was nowhere as famous as it is today. The capital of the People's Republic of China, formerly known as Peking, is a bustling, modern city, full of skyscrapers, luxury hotels and modern commercial enterprises. But there's another side to this sprawling metropolis, the historic side of Beijing, home to the Great Wall of China, the Imperial Palace, also known as the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace. These ancient sites have all been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and are all worth exploring for their beauty, history and antiquity.

Chinese history has always enchanted the West, so it's no surprise that people flock here to experience some of it in Beijing, where they can visit a number of fascinating palaces, temples, mansions, tombs and beautiful traditional gardens. The city also boasts around 120 museums and over 100 public gardens, making a visit here a fascinating voyage of discovery.

The highlight of a visit to Beijing is the Forbidden City, in the city centre. This immense palace complex, which comprises almost 10 000 rooms, was China's administrative centre for 500 years, as well as home to a succession of emperors. The Palace overlooks the equally renowned Tiananmen Square, where political drama unfolded through the city's history.

Beijing's modern heart is mainly a result of the 2008 Olympics, when the city was transformed. The world-class subway system is still being constructed, and some of the most striking architecture in the world is to be found in the city these days. This creates an incredible contrast between ancient history and modern innovation, something which makes Beijing all the more charming to explore.
