Beijing tours

Jump to last reply

I will be travelling to Beijing in mid-March for work but will have almost 3 full days to tour the city. I have traveled to Asia several times before but never to China and never alone. I do very well on my own in Europe but here I am a bit worried about the language barrier, traffic jams, crowds etc.

I will be staying at the Renaissance Hotel near the Forbidden City for the first part of the trip. Any comments on my hotel choice? Shall I change or this is good for a tourist?

Shall I do some sightseeing alone? If yes, which sights are easy?

I would also like to book some tours with a reputable company. Any recommendations?

I would like to focus on Beijing this time, since I am likely to have a similar trip next year, with my husband, and will do side-trips then.

Thank you very much.
