Places to visit on holiday to the Beijing Area, China

There are many fascinating attractions in the Beijing area. Because it would be impossible to fit them all into one holiday, it is a good idea to have a plan and know which attractions you most want to see.

Attractions of historical interest include the Forbidden City. This is one of the most visited sites in the Beijing area. It was from this place, now sometimes called the Palace Museum, that emperors ruled for more than 500 years. The Imperial College was first established in 1306. Inside there is a temple that was built in honour of Confucius, who died in 479 B.C. The Imperial College houses more than 200 stone tablets and many other ancient treasures. Other historical sites include Hongluo Temple, Yunju Temple and Prince Gong’s Mansion. There are many museums in the Beijing area as well. The Exhibition Hall of Weapons is home to more than 10,000 artefacts and examples of weapons used from the 1920’s onward. Included are antiaircraft weapons, cannons and many small arms. The China Bee Museum offers a fascinating look at the origins of bees, the art of bee keeping and how humans and bees co-exist. The Peking Man Site is where some of the first discoveries were made concerning Peking Man, who lived during the stone age. Other museums include the China Printing Museum and the Beijing Ancient Architecture Museum. There are attractions the kids will love such as the Beijing Zoo and Taipingyang Underwater World where visitors can walk “under the sea” in a 80 meter clear tunnel.

Weather in the Beijing Area, China

There is great variation in the weather in the Beijing area depending on the season. During the winter, the average high temperature is about 1 degree. It is not uncommon, however, for temperatures to dip as low as -10.

The average spring temperatures include a low of 7 and a high of 21 degrees. The summer warms up considerably with an average low of 18 and an average high of 31.   Summer is the rainiest season and July averages about 13 rainy days per month.

Travel to the Beijing Area, China

Most travellers to the Beijing area fly into Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK). This airport underwent a large addition in order to accommodate the influx of visitors during the Beijing Olympics, so the airport is well-serviced and well-appointed. While some attempt to get around the Beijing area by using the public transportation system, others prefer to have the use of a car. Because one must have a Chinese driver’s license to drive in the country (or be granted a temporary permit), most rental cars come with a driver.

The beds are traditionally harder than US beds but if you live in China, get used to it, your back will love you. I especially liked the unlimited bottled water...nice touch. Check out the new metro subway lines before you arrive because there is now a stop right next to the building. Came from Wuhan and stayed a week.
