Attractions near the Days Inn Forbidden City

Walking along the Great Wall

The only man-made structure visible from space, the Great Wall is China’s most famous destination. While many dynasties built walls in this area, the impressive structure still standing today was constructed during the Ming dynasty of 1368 to 1644.

The most famous section of the wall, steeped in history and culture with original military facilities, is the Badaling section. The Mutianyu section, while a little further along, is even more beautiful and much quieter; you might even have it all to yourself. To reach the most pristine, well-preserved sections of the Great Wall, you need to hike along the Simatai or Gubeikou sections.

Historic hutongs

A visit to the hutongs is a great way to experience the true historic culture of Beijing locals. Hutong refers to an alleyway that's traditionally home to a water well. The oldest in Beijing is believed to be the Sanmiaojie Hutong, dating back to the Liao dynasty (907-1125), while the majority were built during the Ming and Qing dynasties.

Today, little more than 1,000 hutongs remain. In the historic centre of Beijing, surrounding the Forbidden City, life in these neighbourhoods is centred on the hutongs. Visit Dongjiaominxiang Hutong, the longest at 6.5 kilometres; the narrowest, Quanshi Hutong; and Jiuwan Hutong, the most winding with 13 corners.
