Top Things to Do in Beijing
1. Forbidden City
Visit China’s largest collection of historical buildings in a single, sprawling complex, encompassed by citadel walls painted scarlet, running almost 4 km in circumference. Situated right in the middle of Beijing, this palatial complex was the abode of two great Chinese dynasties in the course of history – the Ming and the Qing.
2. The Great Wall
What is a visit to Beijing without stepping foot on this centuries-old jewel of ancient engineering? Contrary to the common belief, the Wall is not continuous – rather, reinforced with natural, topographical defense systems (like vertiginous mountains) in opportune areas. You can access the Wall via numerous provinces in Northern China; Beijing happens to be popular.
3. Summer Palace
Built as a summer-getaway for the emperors wishing to escape the stifling heat of the mainland, Summer Palace offers soothing, cool, breezy hilltop views from inside an intricately designed dwelling fit for kings. The huge Kunming Lake offers for a good rest-stop for your day-long excursion of this palace.
4. Tiananmen Square
The largest public square in the world at 440,000 m2, this area is enclosed by low fences and surrounded by Russian-style buildings from the 1950s. If you get ambitious, visit the square during sunrise to see perfection in the march of People’s Liberation Army – 108 paces per minute, and 75cm per pace!
1. Zhang Mama
If you wish to taste Sichuan cuisine at the best prices Beijing can offer, Zhang Mama is the place. This popular restaurant caters to heavy inflow of patrons, so expect there to be some waiting time. Try the popular Mala Xiangguo, a spicy concoction with either poultry or seafood.
2. Taste of Dadong
Visit this casual eatery run by Dong Zhenxiang – the duck master of China – to get the best taste of Beijing’s signature Peking duck. Dadong Roast is a sister-chain of this restaurant, which is equally packed-and-popular among duck-lovers. The best part is that both these places are surprisingly affordable for the quality they serve.
3. Temple Restaurant Beijing
Wishing for a meal with a view? TRB sits within the Forbidden City and offers views of the moat and the eastern gate, making your meal more enjoyable. You will find a European menu infused with French influences here and there. Enjoy royal service standards as you dine in the imperial premises.
4. Lost Heaven
Much like the popular Shanghai restaurant, Lost Heaven Beijing branch serves food with equal standards in taste. Try its folk Yunnan cuisine with its mild-but-discernible spiciness, an eclectic combination of ingredients and variety of tastes. The potent cocktails served here are brewed for the Gods – they are that good.
1. Panjiayuan Market

This is one of the oldest shopping streets in Beijing, which has now been pedestrianized. You’ll find a wide range of items here, mid-range brands, malls, cafes and eateries and such. It is a happening place where you can stay all day long, shop, eat and hang out.
3. The Place
