The Chinese capital of Beijing leaves a lasting impression on every traveller. Intrigue, fascination and feeling outside of your comfort zone - exactly what any adventurer wants to experience! From the Forbidden City to Tiananmen Square, there are plenty of must-see sites in Beijing, but to really get to know this mega-city, wander through the matrix of hutongs, check out the residential shopping districts and stroll around the local parks.
Travel north of Beijing to see the monumental Great Wall of China. Walking the Great Wall will appeal to both cultural travellers and adventure trekkers alike. Seeing this iconic landmark snake its way through the mountainous landscape as far as the eye can see is simply astonishing.
From Beijing jump on a high-speed train to Shanghai. With its futuristic and glamorous veneer, Shanghai epitomises modern China.
