Where to Go and Travel Tips
June is a slack season for tourism as it is the month before the summer vacation of Chinese schools. The temperature in early summer allows you to travel light without suffering from the high temperature. Having less people around makes it a perfect time to enjoy some in-depth travel.
The Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Temple of Heaven, the Summer Palace, the Great Wall and the Hutongs are all good places to visit. The presence of fewer tourists allows you to experience the real Beijing.
The lotuses will begin to bloom in late June, especially in the Kunming Lake in the Summer Palace. Beihai Park is another ideal place to appreciate the beautiful summer flowers.
Visit Beijing from a cultural perspective. Experience China’s long history and rich culture by learning language and calligraphy, anticipating tea ceremony, practicing Taichi and making dumplings.
