Itinerary

The "Dragon City" Trans-Siberian tour extension is an ideal compliment to your already incredible trip and is one of Chinas "must see" destinations.

The Chinese capital is one of the country’s six ancient cities. Its name has changed several times and ‘Beijing’ means ‘Northern Capital’, setting it apart from Nanjing, the ‘Southern Capital’. With a municipality population of over 21 million Beijing’s size is still only third to Shanghai and Guangzhou in national rankings, but its citizens are supposedly among the friendliest in China. Around 4.4 million foreigners visit the capital every year, a number that is complemented by the mass of Chinese tourists flocking into the city as well.

From the Great Wall of China and the Forbidden City to Happy Valley theme park, there is much to excite and enjoy in a Beijing extension.
