 Having served as the capital of China for more than 800 years, Beijing has bequeathed us some of the finest remnants of China's imperial past: the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, the Summer Palace – any of which can compare the most significant royal sights in the world – not to mention the Great Wall of China, just one-and-a-half hours’ drive from downtown.

Beijing was awarded recognition as one of the World’s Most Dynamic Cities in 2016 and 2017. It has so much more to offer than just tourist sites: great food, great markets, the best kungfu show and much more. It is also the country’s best center for information technology. China Highlights' private Beijing tours now offer you opportunities to experience the authentic city, talk to the people and make your trip the trip of a lifetime.
