Major Tourist attractions
Century Lama Temple ChinaForbidden City : It is the best preserved group of ancient buildings in China where the old world of beautiful concubines and priapic emperors, eunuchs and conspicuous wealth still lingers around the lush gardens, lovely courtyards, pavilions and great halls of the palace.

Lama Temple : This largest temple of Beijing is an enlightening sight, decorated with great statuary, amazing frescoes, tapestries, matchless carpentry and a fearful pair of Chinese lions. Perhaps most notable of all is an 18m (60ft)high sandalwood statue of the Maitreya (future) Buddha in the Wanfu Pavilion, scooped out from a single tree.

Summer Palace : This empire of palace temples, gardens, pavilions, lakes and corridors was once a playground for the imperial court. The Summer Palace with its exquisite features - water, gardens and hills - was the palace of choice for vacationing emperors and Dowager Empresses.

Temple of Heaven Park : Known for its classic Ming, the name has now been used to brand products from tiger balm to plumbing fixtures, as well as decorating a plethora of tourist literature. The Temple of Heaven is situated in a 267-hectare (660-acre) park, with four gates at the cardinal points, and walls to the north and east. The park is an important meeting place where many city dwellers start the day with a spot of t'ai chi, dancing or game-playing in the park.

The Great Wall of China : The Great Wall has gone through a few restorations in its time. Originally erected 2000 years ago by the Qing dynasty, it was a 'No Trespassing' sign directed at neighbouring kingdoms during those days. For centuries after that it remained neglected and forgotten until 18th-century Europeans took steps to restore it.
