China boasts some of the most revered treasures of the ancient world. Temples and pagodas speak of millennia of history, contemplation and culture. Beijing which is located in the North, is China's capital and most modern city. This bustling city is home to over 10 million people, while remaining steeped in China's rich, royal past.
Beijing is also home to an incredible cultural display of artistic and historical artefacts in more than 50 museums, while folk traditions flourish in theatres, delicious dining can be found in exotic settings, and cultural centres offer fascinating demonstrations of centuries old art and craft making. Places of interest are the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City, Tian'anmen Square, the Temple of Heaven, the Summer Palace and the Ming Tombs.
