The best things to do in Beijing

There are so many
things to do in Beijing
that it's hard to know where to begin.
Of all the famous Beijing attractions, the king is definitely the Great Wall of China, which can be viewed from different areas. Badaling is the section of the wall that can be visited from the capital and it is also the best preserved section. The walls are about seven feet high and in some areas up to six meters wide.

Another of the most famous
attractions in Beijing is the Forbidden City, a Chinese imperial palace that was home to the emperors of China and their court for nearly 500 years. It's located next to
Tienanmen Square, the world's largest plaza and another of the top things to see in Beijing. The Forbidden City was declared a World Heritage Site and a visit takes more than three hours.

Another one of the key places to visit in Beijing
is the Temple of Heaven. It was built in 1420 and was used to pray for a good harvest. But if what you really want are good views, don't miss the Summer Palace, a huge 300-hectare park with beautiful gardens. Other top Beijing activities include visiting the well-known city markets like the Silk Market and the Antiques Market of Panjiayuan.

With so much stuff to do in Beijing, transportation can sometimes be an issue. The best way to visit all the monuments and temples in Beijing is by subway or by taxi since the bus system is very complex and the distances are too long to walk. For more information on
what to do in Beijing, check all these tips and recommendations from the minube community.
