The Summer Palace
Summer Palace

Wide area with many buildings and things to explore. If you like the Chinese garden style this is a must see. For me it's a bit too touristy.

Temple of Heaven
Temple of Heaven

The temple of heaven is not only a complex of historic religious buildings but also a very vivid park. You will find musicians, swordsmen, old people doing tai chi and lots of other stuff going on. My favorite place in Beijing.

The Palace Museum
Forbidden City

Biggest palace on earth, astonishing. Take your time to explore all corners of this area. I would recommend to go up the hill in Jingshan Park to see the palace from above (photo was made from there).

Lijiang
Lijiang Oldtown

Lijiang Oldtown was completely rebuilt in the 1990's. Still it has a very authentic historic flair. A lot of beautiful shops, restaurants, streets and other stuff to explore. When in Yunnan definitely a must visit. But beware: there will be masses of Chinese tourists ;)

Li River
Boat trip on the Li river

The 40 km part of the Li river between Guilin and Yangshou is world famous. The mystic landscape is motive for nearly every second Chinese painting. Although we had bad weather, this trip was incredible.

Daxuzhen
Daxuzhen

This little village has a charming old town (basically one street). The atmosphere is very laid back. Worth a visit when you're in the Guilin region.
