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.
