- The magnificent Forbidden City is the largest and the best-preserved imperial palace complex in the world.

For five centuries, this palace functioned as the administrative centre of the country.
- The Great Wall of China is one of the 'Eight Wonders of the World' and is enlisted in the World Heritage Directory. This immense wall was built to keep out invaders as well as to retain the inhabitants. It spans five provinces from Shanhaiguan Pass in the east to Jiayuguan Pass in the west, looking like a gigantic dragon across deserts, grasslands and mountains. Travel into the rugged mountain landscapes north of the city to the magnificent Great Wall. Once on top of this ancient defensive structure, you’ll find that some sections may be quite steep! But the views are magnificent and the experience of actually walking atop the Great Wall is truly unforgettable.
- Temple of Heaven is seen as the most holy of Beijing's imperial temples. It has been described as "a masterpiece of architecture and landscape design".
