Beijing and The Great Wall

Visit Beijing and The Great Wall


Beijing has played out the drama of the middle kingdom's imperial history for millennia.

The ‘northern capital' has a stunning wealth of treasures in its many impressive temples, palaces and labyrinthine, old alleyways (hutongs), yet is today emerging as a modern metropolis.

To the north the snaking sentinel that is the Great Wall still guards the region's borders.
