Find Centuries of Culture at The Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, and Wangfujing Street

The Forbidden City is a palace complex in central Beijing with deep roots as the former seat of Imperial Chinese Dragon Throne from the Ming dynasty to the end of the Qing dynasty — from the years 1420 to 1912. This historic palace served as the home of emperors and their households, as well as the ceremonial and political center of the Chinese government for almost 500 years. Today, it still stands impressive, covering 180 acres and exemplifying traditional Chinese palatial architecture while housing The Palace Museum. With a visit, you'll find an extensive collection of artwork and artifacts built upon the imperial collections of the Ming and Qing dynasties — truly an amazing sight to see.

Tiananmen Square is one of the top ten largest city squares in the world, located in the center of Beijing, China, named after the Tiananmen ("Gate of Heavenly Peace") located to its north, separating it from the Forbidden City. The square houses more than a few significant hotspots, including the Monument to the People's Heroes, the Great Hall of the People, the National Museum of China, and the Mausoleum of Mao Zedong. Furthermore, Mao Zedong proclaimed the founding of the People's Republic of China in the square on October 1, 1949, and the anniversary of this event is still observed there today. With a long-standing history, Tiananmen Square has unbelievable cultural significance and has been the site of several important events throughout Chinese history.

Located in the Dongcheng District, Wangfujing is one of the most famous shopping streets in Beijing. Popular among tourists and locals alike, the majority of the main area is pedestrianized and filled with commercial activities. In the Qing Dynasty, ten aristocratic estates and princess residences were built here, soon after when a well full of sweet water was discovered, the street was given its name "Wang Fu" (princely residence), "Jing" (well). If you get hungry and are feeling a little adventurous, look out for the many exotic foods served on Wangfujing snack street.
