1) The Summer Palace

The Summer Palace (Chinese Pinyin: Yí Hé Yuán), located in the northwest of Beijing, is believed to be the best-preserved imperial garden in the world, and the largest of its kind still in existence in China. It is only a short drive (15 km) from central Beijing but seems like another world. The park area – which was once a playground for the imperial emperors is full of ponds, gardens, hill sights, and of course the lovely structures themselves. Here, you can do a little bit of hiking up to the Longevity Hill that has an extensive view of the whole area or be mesmerized by the spectacular Kunming Lake as you stroll around.

2) The Forbidden City

Did you know that the Forbidden City has 9999 Rooms for 14 Emperors? Now, you know it. This city is known as the best-preserved imperial palace in China, the largest ancient palatial structures worldwide and also the essence and culmination of traditional Chinese architectural achievement. It used to serve as the Imperial Court for two of China’s most vital dynasties namely the Ming and Qing, without a doubt, a visit to this city is a MUST. Surrounded by moat of 3,800 m long and 52 m wide, this palace is well-guarded. Back in the days, invaders were discouraged by watchful guards in watchtowers equipped with bows and arrows. When you visit the Forbidden City, be prepared to start off at the Meridien Gate and explore the Outer Court and Inner Court as well as the side gardens within the vicinity. Be ready to feel like you are transported to the ancient Dynasties of China!

3) Jingshan (Coal Hill) Park

Located right behind the Forbidden City, a visit to Jingshan (Coal Hill) Park is a must when you are in Beijing. It is a paradise full of trees and blooming flowers, perfect for snapping memories of you here in the city. Without being any close to subtle, it boasts a splendid view of the Palace right from the top of one of Beijing’s very few hills. It was built from earth and dug up to construct the moat of the infamous Forbidden City. If you were to visit this place in early mornings, I could guarantee that you will enjoy seeing middle-aged as well as older Chinese people who stay in groups while singing the revolutionary songs of their youth as well as embracing the slow yet graceful movements of Tai Chi. Perhaps, you might even get the chance to join in one of their Tai Chi sessions. If yes, please do not decline as it would be a lifetime experience!
