China Ė officially known as the Peopleís Republic of China Ė is a fascinating destination with incredible sights and attractions. Here, the landscape is as beautiful as its people. But the land also holds many secrets. Surprisingly, much of Chinaís incredible history lies in wait as many of its historical artifacts are yet to be uncovered. The capital and political center is Beijing in the northern part of the country.
Previously known as Peking, itís home to amazing ancient imperial sites. In Beijing, you can wander through the glory of China, past and present. But the best place to start is the Forbidden City. In 1925, this imperial palace opened its doors to the public, gaining a new title and attraction called the Palace Museum. Back then, no one who stepped inside for the first time realized what riches they were about to see or how big it was. Beijing is an amazing destination. The history, the mystery, the imperial sites, and those incredible photographic moments;you know how you see things in books and then you show up and itís not really what you expected? Well, China is not like that.
China is exactly what you expect and a lot more.
