Things to Do in Beijing in March

Walk on the Great Wall

The Great Wall in SpringThe Great Wall in spring

Spring is a good time to visit the Great Wall, which is full of vigor, with green plants and blossoming flowers. We recommend you visit the Great Wall at Mutianyu. It is ranked top among all parts of the Great Wall for its picturesque scenery, fewer tourists, and beautifully restored architecture.

Pack a warm jacket as the mountains are cooler than in the city, especially in the mornings and evenings.

Visit the Forbidden City

The Forbidden City is a must-see attraction for visitors to Beijing. It is the largest ancient palatial structure in the world, boasting one of the most important five palaces in the world. March is a popular time to visit it. Spring offers mild temperatures and flowering gardens.

Stroll Around the Summer Palace

The whole of the city is blooming marvelously at this time of year, so head to one of Beijing's many parks and gardens. The Summer Palace is a good option.

The Summer Palace is one of the best-preserved ancient imperial gardens in China, which perfectly blends lakes, gardens, and ancient architecture.

You can stroll around the park or take a dragon boat on the lake to view the beautiful lakesidepalaces. It is also a good place to see locals dancing, singing, and practicing tai chi.
