The capital of the most populated country in the world, Beijing has lots to offer visitors, so check out our cheap Beijing flights from the USA today to grab a bargain flight.

While it’s over 3,000 years old, Beijing is a busy city, and with over 21 million residents, there’s never a dull moment!

This huge city is becoming more and more appealing to holidaymakers, with more hotels, bars, restaurants and shops always opening up.

One of the major sights that draws tourists in is Tiananmen Square, the largest open-urban square in the world.

The Forbidden City and its Palace Museum, Lama Temple and the ‘Bird’s Nest’ Olympic Stadium built for the 2008 games are also popular things to see, and be sure to take a rickshaw ride through the narrow streets at night to really soak up the atmosphere.

Aside from these main sights, the city also has a number of galleries and museums and plenty of open green spaces to relax in.

What’s more, if you’re willing to take an hour-long train journey, you’ll find yourself at one of the Wonders of the World, the Great Wall of China.
