Book flights from Dubai to Beijing with Qatar Airways
Arriving in Beijing
Huge, intense and expanding at an enormously fast pace, China’s capital of Beijing is one of the most eclectic cities in the world. Ancient traditional culture sits alongside ultra-modern skyscrapers, and a booming retail sector seems strangely at odds with the still-prevalent Maoist ideals that govern everyday aspects of the people’s lives.
The city was the home of the Ming and Qing dynasty emperors until the formation of a republic in 1911. Today it is the cultural, educational and political centre of the country, filled with historical landmarks and a thriving commercial sector. Book a flight to Beijing with Qatar Airways and discover a huge city with an even bigger heart that welcomes visitors from around the world.
Beijing covers an area of over 16,000sq.km, so it’s important to plan any itinerary carefully. The heart of the city is Tiananmen Square in Dongcheng District. Surrounded by a host of attractions, it is the world's largest public square and a must see for all visitors. A cluster of grand buildings are positioned around the Square, making it a great introduction to the city for visitors. Attractions include the Great Hall of the People, the Museum of Chinese History, the Museum of the Chinese Revolution, the Qianmen Gate and the legendary Forbidden City.
For sports lovers, the iconic Bird’s Nest Stadium in Chaoyang District was home of the 2008 Olympics and is still host to internationally important sporting events. Close by you’ll also find the remains of the medieval city including the Ming Dynasty City Wall Site Park in Chongwen District, the Drum and Bell Towers in Dongcheng District, and Qianmen in Chongwen District.
The Forbidden City is now open to foreign visitors, after being a secret for centuries. This remarkable landmark was home to the Imperial Court during the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and is filled with treasures from these periods.
