A City To Explore
Most cities the world over have something special which they own, be it the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Tower Bridge in London, the Nou Camp in Barcelona, or the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Pisa – every city has something which gives it a little fame. When you turn your attention towards the Far East, namely China, where do you think of first?
Probably Beijing, and with good reason!
Beijing is a city like no other, and this is also the capital city. Home to an astounding number of people, Beijing is packed with experiences to have and things to see, but the distances between said attractions and sites can be large. For that reason, you need to put some research into how to get around. The first point you need to cover is how to get from the airport to your hotel. You could take the metrobus, you could take a taxi, but you could also push the boat out (not literally), and hire a limo to take you from the airport to your hotel in total and utter style.
Once you are actually in situ, it’s time to explore! Beijing is not a city to take lightly, in fact it is a city which is so packed with attractions that you will need to do a little research ahead of time. The top attractions include The Forbidden City, The Temple of Heaven, and Tiananmen Square. These places are obviously where you will find the most visitors, but they are also the attractions you need to tick off your list. If you want to check out a little of the Great Wall of China, you could venture out of the city a little, into the mountainous north, and see some of the most visited parts of this famous construction.
Obviously, Beijing is a city which is affected by humidity, so the spring months are going to be the better times to head there, if you don’t want to be caught in a huge thunderstorm downpour, or if you don’t want to be stifled with heat. Despite the month, do be prepared for warmth. You should also be prepared to walk – a lot! Comfortable shoes are a must do in this city, as well as an empty camera memory card, ready to pack it full of memories from your first iconic visit to a city which, quite frankly, beggars belief.
