Must see Beijing

For the novice youngsters heedless of the economic outburst and the political system in China - or ignorant of the policies of Stalin in the then Soviet Union, or for you - still raring to explore the Marxist-Leninist theories — and for those still reluctant to give in to political philosophies, best creep out of the complex political paradigm and divert yourselves to the must see Beijing tourist spots. Beijing — capital city of China — is one of those great historic places that well defines the ancient heritage and also the benign setting of communist milieu. Ofcourse, the language can get on your way, but the friendly gestures and the non-servile behavior of the locals — that includes your hotel attendant as well — will sure allure you. Talking of the must see places in Beijing, there are myriads you would wish a trip, but impossible to achieve if on a shot vacation. And for the long wayfarers, you are well set for diverse sightseeings at every alley of the city — may it be plush or laid-back, fulgerant or dismal.

While you walk through every historical site, don't forget to get lost in the vociferous nightlife — typical Chinese stuff — or dabble those authentic Chinese delicacies. But, best advise to the history lovers is a day-trip to the 250 acreages of the Forbidden City — a must see Beijing site. Put on your best shoes, cause you have to walk a lot. And, don't forget to hire a guide to detail you the mysticisms of its archi-grandeur, or take a sip of coffee at the Starbucks installed within the castle. The next attraction - the Great Wall of China - obviously, doesn't need any introduction, and neither does it leave any stone unturned to testify the architectural prowess of ancient China. And if you have heard great stories of this marvel, it is imperative that you don't miss out the Great Wall at Badaling, Juyongguan, Mutianyu, Simatai and Jinshanling - no matter how neck-deep you are with your travel schedule. Walk over furlongs to explore this Ming Dynasty relic. Divided into eight sections, namely - Badaling, Juyongguan, Huanghuacheng, Jiankou, Mutianyu, Gubeikou, Jinshanling, and Simatai — this behemoth structure leaps over every arduous terrain and covers about 600 Kms of Northern China. A sure shot must see tourists spot in Beijing.

Likewise Beijing is resplendent with a plethora of historical tourist places, which if not toured, will make your trip jade and drab. Roll your eyes over the sublime beauty of the Beihei Park (Winter Palace) surroundings and the inviting historic artifacts adorning the the entire area. A must see place in Beijing, the site deserves a walk-over to photograph some of the most enchanting prospects all around. And for you crazy youngsters haggling amongst yourselves on the history of China, can clarify your doubts after you check-out the oldest 'Jar', which is believed to be the only remain from the great 'Khan'. Hire a boat here, and set out to amble other sites like Beihai Park at Round City, White Pagoda, Jade Flower Island, Nine-Dragon Wall, Wanfo Lou Tower, Iron Screen etc. Also, the wearied travelers after hours of trudge can now find solace at the Summer Palace (Yiheyuen) — the largest imperial garden in China with a royal history. Surpassing all - I would say - history is at its bounteous best if you cruise through the Mings Tombs or is game for a Hutong Pedicab Tour ( Shichahai Area ).

Here it is! What the communist-gigs would look for - the endless souvenirs from the time of the Communist revolution that takes you back to the early fanatic communist regime of Mao Tsetung. I'm talking of the Tienanmen Square, one of the must see Beijing sightseeings. It was here where the great Mao announced the initiation of People's Republic of China. And for you to find more of communism, walk the entire place from the Tienanmen (Gate of Heaven Peace), the Great Hall of the People, to the National Museum of China, and the People's Heroes and Chairman Mao's Mausoleum. Next, move to the monasteries: to meditate, cherish the tranquility, or gape at obscure art-works within. The Lama Temple — basically dedicated to the Yellow Buddhists, or the renowned Temple of Heaven are worth the whirl. The Beijing Capital Museum — at Fuxingmenwai Dajie — is also a fine place to gape at art masterpieces.
