Ni hao! And welcome to Beijing -- China's capital and political and cultural heart. Immense, vibrant, and historic, Beijing is where gleaming skyscrapers share space with ancient temples, where folks practice tai chi alongside businessmen making deals, and where colorful markets operate beside luxury goods stores. You may be wondering where the "real Beijing" is when you arrive. Know that it's everywhere. This city is ancient yet new, intimate yet busy and reserved yet wild. You'll find its soul both in the old hutongs (alley neighborhoods) and at the glamorous clubs. So, start looking for hotels and flights to Beijing, and get ready to see one of the world's most exciting destinations.
Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) is 32 kilometers from the city center, and you can get there via taxi, subway, or bus. By why get a headache dealing with hordes of people when you can get your own car rental in Beijing? For example, a Beijing car rental gives you more freedom to explore nearby sights like the Great Wall; you can drive to a spot along the Great Wall without thousands of tourists and enjoy the world wonder all by yourself. You can also drive out to the serene Mangshan National Forest Park or head to the port city Tianjin to visit the Dule Temple. Do note that to drive in Beijing, you need to get a provisional license, which can be applied for in Terminal 3 (bring passport photos, your driver's license, hotel registration and application).
From eating Beijing duck and street pancakes to exploring Tiananmen Square to touring the Forbidden City, there's much to do in Beijing. The Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace are both spectacular, and the National Museum of China educates visitors on Chinese history and culture. You can also see a Peking opera performance, go to a tea house, get a foot massage, take a cooking class, and more! If you want to party, go to Sanlitun in Chaoyang District or Wudaokou in Haidian District. With so much to put on the itinerary, you want to look on Travelocity early for Beijing hotels and flights.
