Beijing & Great Wall of China (5 galleries)

Travelers from around the world flock to the Great Wall of China, Summer Palace, and Forbidden City, the former imperial palace. Ornate imperial sites contrast with the smog and gritty streets of the old hutong neighborhoods. The Silk and Pearl Markets offer one-stop shopping for trinkets to fine silks. Bikes, taxis and buses share Beijing's crowded streets, but a rickshaw ride brings smiles to young and old alike.
