    Hi there,
    Met u on #editorchat tonight. Going to Thailand and China next month. In Beijing, other than the usual sites — Great Wall, Tianamen Sq, what other places would u recommend? Going to be there for 4 days.

    Thanks!

    Hi Jane,

    I have to admit ignorance unfortunately, I haven’t been to Beijing myself. For me I have a personal interest in Chinese History, the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, so I would most definitely be checking out the Forbidden City, and related historical sites.

    Things to check out as well would be the mountain scenery. I would ask around for information on amateur hiking trails and the likes!

    Sounds like you’re gonna be traveling around quite a few places. Where else?
