Beijing was my first point of contact with China, and the first stop on our China itinerary. The capital city takes pride in its rich history, its revered temples, palaces, and proximity to the Great Wall. This historic appeal is enlivened with creative dining and nightlife, and an edgy contemporary art scene. On the first day, I visited some of the signature attractions, such as the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, and Drum and Bell Towers. Take a rickshaw around the lakes at Houhai.
