The City of Adventure and History
Beijing is known for it’s colourful history as well as its industrious nature. Although, not a place with a picturesque shoreline or mountain backdrop, if you take a moment to wipe the dust away from your eyes and look a little closer, you’ll see a city of adventure.
From ancient hutongs (alleyways) and historic temples, to vibrant restaurants and a bold art scene, there is something here for every type of traveller. Plus China now offers visa-free stopovers for up to 72 hours for those flying onward – making the city an ideal pause between Europe and Japan or Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands.
