Beijing

Beijing - description of the city:

Peking (Beijing) is not the oldest city of the country, but one of the most interesting. Olympics 2008 globally changed the local landscape: there are huge flower balls at the Tiananmen Square, and in the Forbidden City Olympic mascots Fuwa are walking around. The impressions of those who saw it with their own eyes will last rather long.

Beijing is also a big symmetrical metropolis, the headquarters of the Communist Party of China, the city of mixed architecture: from traditional Russian square and boring, Soviet-style monuments to ancient graceful pagodas - the quintessence of a mysterious and treacherous Asia.

Climate in Beijing:

Autumn (September-November) is the optimal time for visiting Beijing. The locals romantically describe these months "days of clear sky and fresh air." In winter, is slippery on the streets, the temperature is low (about -20 ° C) and the north wind cuts like a knife. Spring is more pleasant, but often come sandstorms and high humidity from Mongolia; the air around you seems electrified. Since May, the temperature gradually begins to rise above +30 ° C. Beijing is almost unbearable in summer because of the heat, and near the end of the season a quite credible threat of hurricanes and heavy rains has no better effect on the mood of tourists.

Entertainment, excursions and places of interest in Beijing:

The main tourist "point" of the city is a giant five hundred years’ palace complex Gugong (also known as the Forbidden City). No less interesting: the huge Tiananmen Square (“Gate of Heavenly Peace”, 880x500 m), "The front gate" of Jiangmen and Tyananmen Gate, The Summer Palace (12 km from Beijing), the Temple of Heaven "Tian Tan" with the famous Huyinbi (the "wall of returned sound"). A walk along the Great Wall of China is another obligatory point of the program. There are some options: you can walk through its restored sites swarming with sellers, but also along the "original" ones, located in Gubeikou or Simatai. Also you should have a stroll in the "hutongs" - the old quarters of the city.

The Yonghe Buddhist temple, "the Temple of Confucius" Kunmyao, the Daoist temple Bai Yun Guan, the mausoleum of Mao Zedong, the Museum of the Chinese Revolution, one of the oldest bridges in China Lugouqiao ("Marco Polo Bridge"), the National Gallery, the park Qiang Tan with the tombs of 13 emperors of the Ming dynasty and the "Animal Alley" (50 km from Beijing) are of great interest.
