If you're overwhelmed with everything that there is to see and do, why not make things easy and head straight to the best? Great Wall of China and Tiananmen Square are some iconic places to start off with.

Are you searching for a place to take the kids in Beijing? You'll be spoilt for choice. Firstly, we recommend that you stop in at Beijing Shijingshan Amusement Park or Happy Valley Amusement Park. You must also let the family enjoy Jingshan Table Tennis Park and Beijing World Park.

Lovers of wildlife will have a splendid time at Beijing's popular marine life centres, where travellers have a chance to look at what lives in the expansive oceans of this big blue planet. At Beijing Aquarium and Tai Ping Yang Underwater World Exhibition, you and your little ones can encounter fascinating creatures of all sorts, some that seem familiar and some that you have never met before.

Up for a stickybeak at a whole lot of extraordinary wild animals when travelling in this region? If the answer is yes, then this area is certain to have you rapt with its collection of zoos. Take the bull by the horns and start at a couple of the best locales, the Beijing Zoo and the Beijing Wildlife Park. Families who are enjoying these attractions can keep going with visits to the Beijing Badaling Wildlife World and Yanqing Badaling Bear Park.

You'll find a few beautiful parks and gardens around Beijing where travellers can have a look at different plant species or just chill out. Amble around the Beijing Botanical Garden and the Grand View Garden. These are pleasant spots with plant collections that are popular with travellers and locals alike. On the other hand, you might find it easier to visit Beijing Chinese Cultural Garden or the China Medicinal Botanical Garden.

Visitors to Beijing often become envious when they discover just how much green space there is here. Keen to live like a local? Beihai Park and Ditan Park are two great spots in which you can seek out a quiet stretch of grass. On the other hand, Jingshan Park and Chaoyang Park may be more convenient depending on your location.

Slap on some comfy clothing and make your way to Pearl Waterfall of Qingliang Valley for an excellent time in the Beijing area.

With lovely vistas, the lakes here are major attractions for adventurous holiday makers. Most locals will direct you to Huánghuāchéng Great Wall Lakeside Reserve or Macao River. Wild Duck Lake Natural Reserve and Beisha River are also worth considering.

Craving a day out in nature? Then make sure you check out at least one of the local nature reserves and parks. Two awesome spots include Jiudaowan Canyon and Olympic Forest Park. Staying a day or two extra? Then you'll want to consider Xianqi Cave and Badachu as well.

You can bet you'll never be lost for things to do in this destination, where you will find a great variety of museums to explore. Start with the China Red Sandalwood Museum or the Chinese People's Anti-Japanese War Museum. If you are looking for something more to do, you could also visit the Military Museum of the Chinese People's Revolution or the Museum of the Chinese Revolution.

Stuck inside on a rainy day in Beijing? Now could be the ideal time to visit at least one of the educational attractions in the area. The displays at Beijing Planetarium and the China Science and Technology Museum will fuel your imagination and have you keen to know more. The Sony Explora Science Museum is also an option if you can't get enough.

Beijing is home to a huge variety of educational attractions, where you and your mates will find a wide range of historical objects, stories and facts on display. The Beijing Museum of Natural History and the Minzu University Of China Museum are a couple of the best in the region, with well-organised collections and communicative models and diagrams. The Wangfujing Ancient Human Museum and the Geological Museum of China are also worth a visit if you can fit them in.

Beijing boasts a thriving art community, as shown in its huge collection of art galleries and exhibition spaces. Make sure you visit the thoughtfully curated displays at the National Art Museum of China and the Capital Museum. Not enough for you? Then why not search through the Today Art Museum or the Green T. House Art Gallery?

Beijing has heaps of interesting historical museums that are sure to take you on an adventure back through time. Familiarise yourself with the backbone of the area at the China Museum of History and the National Museum of China. The Songtangzhai Museum and the Xu Beihong Museum are also worthy of a squizz if you have a few more hours to kill.

Whether you're a history aficionado or just a curious visitor, you'll discover a great deal of things to see and do when you are visiting the area. Kick start your day with a trip to the Bell and Drum Towers or the Zhengyangmen, two of the best attractions here. Zhongnanhai and the Hall of Supreme Harmony are also worth a visit.

While in Beijing, you might find yourself going for gold along some of the historic roads that stretch across the city's waterways, so why not stop for a moment and appreciate these big old structures. Marco Polo Bridge and 17 Arch Bridge are two of the most interesting here. And if you can squeeze them in, you can try and make it to Jade Belt Bridge and Red Stairway Bridge.

If you're interested in the history of royalty, the Beijing area's many palaces are bound to captivate you. Forbidden City and, of course, Summer Palace are just a few exciting buildings where you and your mates can have fun checking out the distinctive architecture. Still have some time to spare? Take the time to pass by Old Summer Palace or Beijing Working People's Cultural Palace before you head off.

This region is recognised for its numerous religious sites. The Temple of Heaven and the Lama Temple are the most frequented of these celebrated structures, with the Houhai Park and the Temple of Confucius coming in close behind.

Beijing has other lesser-known attractions if you really want to get off the tourist track a bit. Most travellers suggest the 798 Space or Qiaobo Snow World as decent spots to pass some time. You may also enjoy having a look at the C5art and the Imperial Granary.
