Holiday In Beijing

When you get away, you go big and this time there’s no messing around. Book red-hot holidays in Beijing and hit up one of the world’s biggest cities (the runner-up, but who’s counting?). 
With gorgeous heritage sites like the Grand Canal and the Great Wall, Beijing proves that size does matter…and so do looks. Located just 185 km west of the East China Sea, Beijing has been rocking prime real estate as a major trading post and cultural hub for, oh, the past few millennia #nobigdeal. Let a rich history, delicious street eats and glimmering temples woo you to “the Forbidden City”. With Beijing package deals from lastminute.com.au, you’ll already feel like you’re getting away with thievery anyway...

Things to Do in Beijing

China’s capital city really is huge, so fill your Beijing holiday with all the good stuff—like the iconic bao sandwiches, steamed buns loaded with savoury meats and veggies. Because you’re a rebel at heart, storm the gates of the Forbidden City. Just kidding—this royal complex in the city centre isn’t off-limits at all, so take a tour. Beautiful in every season, the Summer Palace is another luxey big-hitter. It’s located northwest of the downtown districts, so catch the metro or drive one of our brilliant Beijing car hire options. West of the Summer Palace, enjoy some fresh air and gosh-darn peace and quiet in the Beijing Botanical Garden and Forest Park before walking along original sections of the Great Wall, dating back to before the Ming Dynasty #OG. Talking about blasts from the past, Beijing is also home to a working replica of the Central Perk coffee house from the television programme Friends.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Spend a full day loading an extra suitcase with treasures at Wangfujing Shopping Street, located a short walk east of Tiananmen Square. Wander through department stores, boutiques and open-air stalls, stocked with designer fashion, curiosities and art to decorate your flat. If you prefer a vintage flair, check out the Panjiayuan Flea Market. Just save up for the splurge with one of our cheap Beijing holidays and you’re good to go!

The cuisine in Beijing includes a little bit of everything, and restaurants and street food is available all over the city. Tuck in to some comfort food with a bowl of steamed dumplings, Peking duck and fried rice, or step out of your comfort zone and sample the quick-fried tripe.

Forget sleeping! The nightlife offerings in Beijing are varied, from jazz bars and performing arts venues to house parties and speakeasies from the city’s more conservative days. Today, karaoke bars and opera are thriving side by side, so grab a drink and request your favourite ABBA song…or just get tickets to the next opera and let the professionals handle the vocals.

What’s Next?

It’s time to book one of our baller packages to Beijing, so step away from your desk—quickly. With lastminute.com.au, you can mix and match flights that fit your schedule and the city’s top hotels, so what’s stopping you?
