Powerful emperors and historic hutongs

Located on the edge of vast Tiananmen square, the Forbidden City is one of the most important remnants from China's imperial era. Golden lions, red walls and traditional Chinese roofs form the decor of Beijing's most visited attractions. Another unique attraction are the historic hutongs; walled neighbourhoods with small houses and narrow lanes that surround communal courtyards. Beijing is the ideal destination for a city trip or the starting point for a longer vacation in China. Treat yourself: book a flight to Beijing now!

Porcelain from the Mao era

Shopping is a favourite Chinese pastime. Beijing offers almost endless shopping opportunities. The Sanlitun Village is a young and trendy shopping area in the heart of Beijing's nightlife district. The Panjiayuan Markt has a more traditional vibe: this is one of the largest antique markets in the country. Hone your bargaining skills shopping for China from the Mao era, handmade furniture and antique jewellery.
