How to Plan a Beijing Tianjin Tour

As the capital of China, Beijing has so much to offer. You can spend 2 to 4 days visiting the Forbidden City to witness the royal buildings of the ancient China empire, hiking on the incredible Great Wall to feel the grandeur of this man-made wonder, and wandering along the traditional Beijing hutongs to experience the authentic local life... When you arrive in Tianjin, 2 or 3 days are usually enough to cover its major highlights such as North Jiefang Road Financial Street (the “Wall Street in the East”), Five Great Avenues (Wudadao Area), Jingyuan Garden (former residence of the Last Emperor of Qing Dynasty – Puyi), and Porcelain House (China House).
