Weekend breaks to Beijing
If you are living in China, there is no better place to take your weekend break than in Beijing. This city is quite literally hundreds of thousands of years old. It is both a modern and a historic city. It would be impossible to see the entire city in any exhaustive way in a weekend trip but over the course of several weekend breaks you might come a little closer. Some of its most notable sites are the Forbidden City and its many parks- the most famous is Beihai, Tiananmen Square, Tianning Temple—one of the oldest temple in the city, the Temple of Heaven, and the Beijing Botanical Gardens. If you are interested in the highest forms of Chinese art, you should go to a Chinese Opera at the National Centre for Performing Arts, and go to some cloisonné and laquerware factories. Cloisonné is regarded as one of the highest forms of art and makes a perfect keepsake for a weekend break in Beijing.
