Major Attractions in Beijing
Package deals to Beijing would not be complete without including a tour of a section or two of The Great Wall. Juyong Pass, Huanghuacheng, and especially the section at Mutianyu are not to miss. In addition to The Great Wall, other attractions abound, such as The Summer Palace and Beihai Park, an oasis of lush greenery in the center of the city. Bike tours, walking tours, and other outdoor activities are also offered in all-inclusive vacations to Beijing.
Beijing Annual Events
Festivals abound in Beijing, such as the Beijing International Beer Festival, which is very much like Germany's Oktoberfest. The city has partnered with a German sponsor to help elicit the same ambiance as its European counterpart. The Grand View Garden Fair, as part of the Chinese New Year Celebration during February, will evoke images straight out of one of the most famous of all Chinese novels, "A Dream of Red Mansions." Finally, the third Saturday in May each year is the Huangyaguan Great Wall Marathon which pits its runners against The Great Wall itself. You can cheer the runners on or -- if you're really brave -- plan to run it yourself. Vacation packages in Beijing can be centered around one of these events to make the most of your visit.
