Kuoni Insider

Beijing is a great city to explore and it reveals a wonderful and culturally rich past that somehow remains evident in modern times. Wandering round the Forbidden City is a magical experience and it truly took my breath away when I looked out over it from up at the Jingshuan Viewpoint. The city boasts many other famous sites, but a trip out of the city to the Great Wall of China is a must! I will never forget climbing a short way up the wall and just sitting alone to take it all in. Amy Biddlecombe, Personal Travel Expert, Winchester
