Explore Beijing's imperial history with a visit to the Forbidden City, where you can explore the exquisite treasures housed within the Palace Museum. Just south is the historical Tiananmen Square, which contains the Monument of the People's Heroes and the Memorial Hall of Chairman Mao. To the east and west are the National Museum of China and the Great Hall of the People. You could be occupied here for hours! There are countless phenomenal Beijing hotels in the area, so there's no rush. Take your time exploring before freshening up and heading out to dinner and perhaps a show at the Chaoyang Theater.
China is a massive country with diverse cultural and ethnic roots, and you can expect the same from its cuisine! There's so much to try, and it's hard to go wrong, but the Peking duck (a national dish), jiaozi (dumplings), and Mapo tofu are a good place to start. If you're feeling adventurous, how about a fried scorpion on a stick? Test your culinary mettle on the various dubious yet surprisingly delicious offerings to be found in street markets such as Donghuamen Night Market. Ready for your Beijing adventure?
