Historical Site
A vast majority of tourists who visit Beijing for the first time consider the Forbidden City as a place they must see. The Forbidden City, known as Gugong in Mandarin, once served as the imperial palace for 24 emperors during the Ming and Qing dynasties. It is a symbol of ancient China. Although it is no longer China's political centre, you can still feel its former glory once you are within the courtyard and surrounded by the high walls. Its long history has left behind a large amount of precious architecture and cultural relics, making it one of the most important cultural heritage in modern China.
Summer Palace

Garden
Situated in the Haidian District northwest of Beijing, the Summer Palace is a Unesco World Heritage site that used to be the palace and garden of the emperors of the Qing Dynasty. It is the largest and most well preserved royal park in China. Construction of the palace began in 1750 and it served as a residential and entertainment area for the royal members. The palace underwent two major reconstructions after suffering damages during invasions by the Anglo-French Allied Forces and the Eight-Power Allied Forces during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Summer Palace can be divided into three sectors: a political activity area centered at the Hall of Benevolence and Longevity; an empress living area concentrated around the Hall of Jade Billows and Hall of Joy and Longevity; and a tour route concentrated along the long corridor, rear hill, and the west sector.

Beijing Wildlife Park is home to more than 200 species of wild animals. When you come to the park, you can watch exciting animal performances such as bear acrobatics, monkey cycling, and lion loop-jumping. In the free-range area in the park, tourists can feed animals through the iron bars. But beware! Do not extend your hands to the other side of the cage! The Beijing Wildlife Park also has a bird pavilion where you can see many beautiful birds such as flamingos and peacocks, as well as parrots capable of conversing with people.

The Great Wall of Badaling in Yanqing, Beijing, is a pass for the Ming Great Wall. As the saying goes, "you are not a hero until you reach the Great Wall".

Intercontinental Hotel, Tongli Center, Sanlitun, Beijing has long been a popular landmark in Sanlitun.  The striking architectural appearance of the building highlights the design concept of the hotel which is inspired by the hexagonal diamond element on the building’s façade. Through the analysis of a diamond’s formation, which is made from constantly refining and polishing the rugged stone, the design adopts the cutting and luster of the diamond to shape the space. This concept is applied throughout the architectural plan layout and in almost every elevation detail. The design looks exquisite and elegant, yet stylish and avant-garde. The spatial space is created through the configuration of various designer furniture pieces and artworks with effective lighting to build up the atmosphere and the dynamic rhythm of the hotel. As the preferred venue for Beijing Central Banquets and Conferences, InterContinental Beijing Sanlitun has more than 1,500 square meters of banquet space, including 800 square meters of the grand ballroom and 8 function rooms, which can meet the needs of new couples. For a wedding, in order to make the overall space more decorated, the decoration of the top of the ballroom is usually an essential part.

Let us row a Boat at Beihai Park.  The first time I learned about Beihai Park was because of a song I heard in my childhood, Let's scull... and from a textbook about Beihai Park in elementary school.  At that time, I knew that there is a Baita Temple in Beihai Park. Beihai Park is behind the Forbidden City. There are two gates one in the north and one in the south. If you want to go to Baita Temple, you should go to the South Gate. However, the North Gate will take you to the White Pagoda Temple. Beihai Park is very large, serene and quiet. In addition to the Baita Temple, there are also some other ancient pavilions and plaques around here. The most tourist here are elderly or people with children.

Feel the taste of Japan on the tip of your tongue at Edo-Mae Sushi, Jianwai Soho. On a sunny winter day, go for a Japanese style feast like bluefin tuna sashimi platter, fresh and delicious. Some of the chef’s recommended items here are Hokkaido's fresh goldfish sashimi, Salmon avocado salad, Caesar salad. Some light snacks include Salt-roasted Japanese yellow-carved fish, sprouts, grilled live squid, and delicious seafood pine mushroom soup. The fire-roasted beef truffles here are aromatic, juicy and delicious. If you are in for some exotic seafood then the Russian live king crabs is a must-try which is sufficient for two. It is shocking how amazing it looks and taste even more delicious. On-site fire-grilled luxury foie grass sushi feels like an aromatic bloom on the tip of the tongue. Also, Japan's Jinggangshan cantaloupe here is very refreshing, delicious and sweet. Which feels like melting happiness on the tongue.

In Beijing, I checked out a pink girlish bunkhouse, with the interior of cherry blossom petals as the main color, A large flamingo wallpaper can be seen on the wall, with some small and exquisite furniture, the girl’s heart is bursting, a small green plant near the bedside is, looks very fresh. Here are some of the important things to know about this place: 1 It is located at Exit B of Peony Garden Station on Subway Line 10, go to the airport and take the No. 10 line to Sanyuanqiao Station (6 stations) to the airport line. Distances from the iconic spots such as the Water Cube and the Bird's Nest are also not very far away. Also, you can conveniently avoid traffic. 2 The house is a one-bedroom, but there is also a separate kitchen (even the kitchen is also irresistibly cute, and the interior is colored pink), the bathroom, the kitchen is fully equipped with basic amenities, along with refrigerators, washing machines, etc. People who like to cook for themselves will definitely enjoy staying here.  3  The house is in the community, and there is a security guard near the main gate downstairs, an access card is required to open and enter the door. The room is password-locked, so you do not need to worry about the safety here.  4 The room needs to be booked in advance, or else there will be no rooms available, because of the popularity of this place. Such a comfortable, nice and well-equipped room, with other girls to share with, I think that no girl can resist it. Inside this cute, well-furnished room filled with props, you can take amazing pictures in minutes.
