The Forbidden City is an imperial palace in the centre of Beijing. Some consider it the heart of the capital as this well-preserved heritage site occupies 720,000 sq m of land and looks over Beijing. With 980 buildings and over 8000 rooms, the sheer scale of this magnificent masterpiece of Chinese architecture will amaze your students. The Palace Museum is home to the best collection of Chinese historical artefacts in the world. Even though the Palace is large enough for schools to spend over a day exploring, only 60% of the Forbidden City is open for public access.
See both the old and modern Shanghai on a night cruise along the Bund. Shanghai is a global financial centre, particularly within the Asia-Pacific region. Its famous Lujiazui skyline is well known with significant buildings such as the Shanghai Tower, the Shanghai World Financial Centre and the Oriental Pearl Tower lining the sky. The Bund runs along the Huangpu River and travelling along it is a great way to see Shanghai's skyline at night.
Although just a series of stone fortifications built along the historical northern borders of China, the Great Wall's history spans multiple dynasties, emperors and invasions. The majority of the existing wall is from the Ming Dynasty and is recognised today as being one of the most impressive architectural feats in history. Visit a section of the Great Wall with your students on a school tour in China. Hike on one of the 7 Wonders of the World - the view is worth the climb.
