Things to Do

May is a good season to go to see flowers in Beijing, and also one of the best times to visit the Great Wall, among the lush vegetation. See our Great Wall tours.

Jindong Grand Canyon: Of all the treats in Beijing few compare to the Jingdong Grand Canyon's scope. An enormous expanse swallows the gaze of visitors and echoes with the awe and amazement that slips out of their dropped jaws. Located in the Pinggu area of Beijing, this beautiful,breathtaking and an overall worthy excursion is a better bet in May.

Shijingshan Amusement Park: Why travel to Beijing just to visit an amusement park? Because it is colorful, entertaining, uniquely Chinese andduring May the weather is perfect to enjoy the water rides, that aren'tavailable in April yet avoiding the intense outdoor heat of June. Located in the Shijingshan district of Beijing the park offers live shows, family oriented restaurants and nighttime entertainment make this the perfect May destination for family and friends alike.

Beijing Botanical GardenBeijing Botanical Garden

Botanical Garden: May time isn't just play time in Beijing. It's a time to "go Botanical". So much is encompassed in Beijing's Botanical Garden,the largest of its type in Asia: Long Jiao Temple, Reclining Buddha Temple, Exhibition Green houses and so much more. And with floral life at its peak in May, no time is better to visit this garden, a stone's throw away from Fragrant Hill in Hai dian District.

Be aware: May marks the beginning of the busy travel season, but flights, hotels, and tourist attractions don't get more expensive until later in the year, in the peak travel season from June to October. However, May 1 to 3 is the Labor Day holiday, when hotel rates are often higher than usual, and tourist attractions are crowded. If you plan to travel during this period, you are advised to book everything in advance.
