Two days in Beijing might not seem like very long, but it’s just enough to tick off a few of the Chinese capital’s must-see sights.

Let your imagination run wild in the Forbidden City, holiday like an emperor at the Summer Palace, and whizz down the side of the Great Wall in a toboggan.

Make the very most of your short stay in Beijing by tucking into real Chinese cuisine in a restaurant or family home.
