BEIJING DISCOVERY

There is no better introduction to China than a visit to Beijing. It is the capital city; as well as political, educational, and cultural center of China. Developments in and around the city are moving at lightening-speed; new and deluxe hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, and roads seem to be popping up everyday. Of course what attracts visitors from around the globe are the incomparable attractions. Tour the Forbidden City, the former imperial palace that was home to Emperors of China for almost 500 years; and stand atop the amazing Great Wall of China. Visit the magnificent Temple of Heaven, and enjoy the beauty of the Summer Palace, recognized as a World Heritage Site and a “masterpiece of Chinese landscape garden design.” Be prepared for full days, and a city like no other.
