The Sights of Beijing
With such a stronghold in the development of China, and the rich history Beijing is rooted in, there will be no trouble packing your weekends with places to see and things to do.
In the heart of Beijing, the Forbidden City earned its name by closing itself off to the public in the Ming and Qing Dynasty. Easily access the entrance at Tian’anmen East Metro, Line 1.

Second largest city

Like Amsterdam, Beijing focuses a lot of its transport on cycling to reduce everyday traffic. Be sure to find plenty of rental bikes available, such as Ofo and Mobike.
