China travel guide

China - Beijing (Chapter)

14th Edition May 2015

This is the Běijīng chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.

Few places on Earth can match the extraordinary historical panorama on display in Běijīng – there are six Unesco World Heritage sites in this city alone, just one less than the whole of Egypt. But this is also where China’s future is being shaped: Běijīng is the country’s political nerve centre, a business powerhouse and the heartbeat of China’s rapidly evolving cultural scene.

  • hike your way along an unrestored ‘wild’ section of China’s most famous icon, the Great Wall
  • maps
  • marvel at the might and splendour of the Forbidden City, the world’s largest palace complex and home to 24 consecutive emperors of China
  • transport
  • lose yourself in the city’s warren of historic hútòng (alleyways), or follow our absorbing hútòng walking tour
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: History, Language, Sights, Activities, Courses, Sleeping, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, and Běijīng and around, The Great Wall, Ming Tombs, Chuāndixia, and Marco Polo Bridge & Wǎnpíng Town.
