If you’re looking for something really ‘out there’ and quite a bit different to the usual holiday, I’ve got just the thing for you!
The massive Chinese capital is brilliant for any kind of holiday, whether you’re looking for a rich cultural experience, a chilled and relaxing kind of retreat, or a crazy hectic few days of exploring… Beijing can offer you all three and more. And at this brilliant Expedia price of €697, I’m not quite sure why I’m not writing this deal from the Great Wall or something!
Who knows where to even start with recommendations for Beijing… but I’ll throw a few at you to get you started! Firstly, you absolutely have to visit The Forbidden City. This place housed 24 emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties and is actually the best preserved imperial palace in the whole of China… well worth seeing.
Tian’anmen is another must see. This public square is the largest and can accommodate a million people. It also holds a special significance as it’s where the ceremony for the founding of the People’s Republic was held.
Obviously, I don’t need to tell you that the Great Wall of China is a must, I’m sure it’s already very high on your bucket list ;)
If you’re looking for food, you need to give Beijing roast duck a try, suss a few of them out and find the best one, ’cause the quality is meant to be through the roof!
The Prime Hotel is ideal for this trip as well as it’s located right in the heart of the city and is just a 15 minute walk of the National Art Museum and Wangfuking Street, so a lot of the best attractions and must-sees are within minutes.
