Why Travel to Beijing

If you are looking for a travel destination with a rich historical legacy, Italy is always a safe choice. Greece and Egypt are also among thе first countries that come to mind when you are thinking about a perfect vacation setting for a history enthusiast. One-of-a-kind China somehow skips under the radar of most people, although the city boasts a 3000-year history, and the capital of the country is one of the most remarkable places in the world.

Beautiful Beijing once was the capital of four dynasties and today is home to countless majestic imperial palaces and breathtaking gardens, dating back to different periods of China's history, One of them is the striking Forbidden City, the world's biggest palace complex. It seems unbelievable, but it takes over 0.72 sq km (0.28 sq mi), includes 9900 beautifully decorated rooms, and can accommodate up to a million people!

Of course, no Beijing tour can do without the main symbol of the country, the striking Great Wall of China, to this day the longest structure made by men. Apart from the unparalleled historical significance, this amazing site provides some of the most jaw-dropping views over the city and taking a short walk along the wall is a "must" thing to do during any Beijing travel.

Another great reason to add Beijing to your travel plans is an amazing food. The city provides so many dining opportunities that a lifetime is not enough to check out them all. The city is bursting with fast-food cards, cozy cafes, stylish bars, and luxurious restaurants (23 were awarded Michelin stars) so and even the pickiest eater will be able to find something to taste.
