What's the best way to make the most of Beijing by foot?

Plan out where you are going to go before you get there. Beijing is spread out and may not be able to see everthing you want by foot. The MTR is easy to navigate and most signage on the MTR is in English as well as Chinese.

    From Chinese Dynasties to Cultural Dynamics

    A world-renowned gem, sprawling Beijing has magnificent monuments and peaceful parks. At its heart is the world’s largest square, Tiananmen, surrounded by important museums and the amazing Forbidden City. This 15th-century, walled complex of palaces neighbors Jingshan Park and Beihai Park with its imperial garden.

    Across from Tiananmen Square is the ultra-modern National Center for Perfoming Arts, a beacon of the city’s culture so impressively displayed at the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics in the Bird’s Nest Stadium.

    To its east is the UNESCO World Heritage listed Summer Palace, a lakeside retreat of emperors, while also UNESCO listed is the grand Temple of Heaven in Chongwen district, where remnants of Ming dynasty city walls are visible. Nearby are several hutongs, narrow alleys with traditional architecture, that contrast with wider, modern roads like Beijing Financial Street, the city's business area.

    The most popular Beijing shopping street is Wangfujing, and other must-see sights include the giant pandas at Beijing Zoo and the Great Wall of China, an easy day trip from Beijing.

    As you would expect from the capital of the world’s most populous country, there are a good number of 5-star hotels in Beijing on Booking.com, mainly in the Dongcheng and Chaoyang districts. There are also several hotels near Beijing Capital Airport in the northeast.

    Hotels that guests love in Beijing

    • Having stayed at many 4 and 5 star hotels, my experience ranks up there with the best. The staff were the most attentive, friendly and helpful of any hotel I have stayed at, the hotel has an authentic feel and the food was fantastic. The phone on arrival was very helpful, as were the maps and advice provided. If you have an opportunity to stay over a Sunday, I also highly recommend attending Black Sesame - a 10 course free flow set menu of local cuisine/fusion. If I go back to Beijing, I will definitely stay at the Orchid again.

    • the hotel lobby was clean and offered free bike rentals with a 200rmb deposit. It was near the bus line and down the street from the forbidden city an Oasis Cafe! The Great Wall tour was fantastic and I loved the acrobatic show! Also I'm glad I brought my espresso machine. But the resturaunt at the end of the ally had the best black coffee I've found in 3 months of living in China. Beijing is a true world city! Absolute magic.

    • I traveled with a group of friends and we got a lot of help from the hotel manager who was superfriendly. He gave us helpful tips to travel in Beijing and China and he also arranged a car for us to go back to the airport. He was genuinely kind, interested and friendly. Also the rooms where really nice, comfortable and clean.
