Beijing – the capital city embodies China's ancient civilization and rich cultural history. Alongside all of the historical buildings, temples, and gates is the juxtaposition of a modern China filled with skyscrapers, luxury shopping malls, and a vibrant art and music scene.

From the travel blogs and the introductions of the tourist destinations of Beijing tours, you will get a lot of useful information about the three top attractions – the Great Wall, Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven.

A visit to Beijing is not complete without enjoying the magnificent scenery of the Great Wall. Compared with crowded Badaling Great Wall closer to the city center, Mutianyu section will be better for hiking. It was not crowded at all and the majority of the hikers were the foreign friends. On the map there are totally 23 towers opened to the public and 1 to 14 are much more popular. I started from the 14 watchtower and from the 14 to the 6 watchtowers the steps are smooth and easy breathing. However went on to the first one, the steps suddenly become cliffy. Nearly ten steps all the hikers have to stand for breathing. It is much more challenge. Standing on the first watchtower, overlooking, embracing the nature, how cool! Just come to enjoy the beautiful scenery!

One way of understanding Beijing and its global vision is through the historical sites. Forbidden City – the symbol building of Beijing is really worth visiting together with the Great Wall. Unbelievably massive, disturbingly ostentatious and amazingly geometrical, it is the one place that you should definitely see while you are here. The most attractive sites in the Forbidden City are: Hall of Supreme Harmony (the largest surviving wooden hall, commonly known as the "Jin Luan Dian"); the Hall of Central Harmony and the Hall of Preserving Harmony (other two halls of the Three Main Halls), as well as the Imperial Garden etc. So large with so much history and architecturally interesting, it is hard to sum up the feeling in Forbidden City. Just come to feel the strong atmosphere of the imperial power!

Temple of Heaven tour will also leave you a deep impression. Not only the historical site, it has become a large park already. The main buildings such as Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests, Imperial Vault of Heaven and Circular Mound Altar are located on the central axis connected by the Danbi Bridge. During the tour to the main buildings, you will learn more about the history and the sacrifice culture as I was. Besides, around the park hundreds of people do exercises during the daytime including Taichi Ball, dancing, playing shuttlecock and so on.

Are you interested in the historical sightseeing? Just come to get your own amazed feeling!
