Introducing Forbidden City & Dōngchéng Central

This historic neighbourhood is the very heart of Běijīng. Packed with essential sights, and some fabulous accommodation options, it is the area you’ll likely be spending much of your time in. Imperial palaces, temples, socialist-realist architecture, parks and museums jostle for space here, but it’s also where you’ll find the capital’s most famous shopping street, Wangfujing Dajie.
