Destination Beijing



The new city of the new century, Beijing has grasped the future and has taken its history with it. Its literary background, its Forbidden City, its love for its traditions, and its desire to lead the future give us a city that has something for everyone. No visit to the city is complete without a visit to the sites of the former empire and the sights of current times.
