Beijing holidays

Beijing is a modern and fashionable city whose cityscape is changing almost daily. However, it is still possible to see parts of the city that have changed little for millennia. Must-sees on any visit include the Forbidden City, built in the 15th century and a forbidden area for 500 years until the revolution of 1911, the intricately carved and colourfully decorated Temple of Heaven and the Imperial Summer Palace, located just outside the city. It is also possible to visit the Great Wall on a day-trip from Beijing.
