Beijing is vast. Although you could spend all your time without ever straying too far from the area around Tian’an Men Square, you would be missing out on a lot. Sights in the northwest of the city include the unmissable Summer Palace, the intoxicating hillside Xiang Shan Park and the haunting ruins of the Yuanming Yuan, or Old Summer Palace. It’s worth trying to squeeze all three into one day’s sightseeing. For fans of contemporary urban culture, the 798 Art District in Beijing’s northeast is a must, and you can drop in on the markets and bars around Sanlitun on the way back into town.
