The Great Wall
There is perhaps no better representation of China’s storied 5000-year history than the Great Wall. Tourists from all over China and the world flock to see this marvel of ancient engineering. Living in Beijing offers one easy access to some of the best-preserved sections of the wall. The sections of the wall that draw the largest number of tourists have all been tamed and restored. However, there are still large stretches that have been left in their original state and offer an exciting expedition for adventurous hikers and campers alike.
The Forbidden City
In the heart of China’s capital and one of the most modern cities in the world lies the largest imperial palace in the world. Completed in 1420 by the early Ming Dynasty, this place remained the seat of imperial power in ancient China for almost 500 years. Now open to the public, this impressive structure offers outsiders a glimpse into what imperial life was like in Ancient China. In addition, the forbidden city holds more than a million rare and valuable works of art, totaling one sixth of the total number of cultural relics in China.
