Beijing is a vibrant and bustling city with a wealth of ancient places to visit, coupled with the modernity of the 21st century. It's awash with palaces and also plenty of green areas in which to relax such as Fragrant Hills. If you're looking for somewhere very different to spend a honeymoon, then Beijing has it all.
With a history that goes back more than 3,000 years Beijing has more than it's fair share of places of interest to visit. With regular flights from South Africa you could be exploring this fascinating part of the world in a little over 18 hours. There is much to see, that the hardest bit is knowing where to start. Tian'anmen Square is the largest city square in the world, and will keep you occupied for several hours. Climb the rostrum, attend the flag raising ceremony or visit the National Museum of China. The Summer Palace will export you to another world, full of quiet tranquillity, with courtyards, lakes and pretty promenades. Take in one of the lively outdoor markets selling all manner of things and if you're there in the spring be sure to visit some of the botanical gardens that are perfumed with exotic scents and filled with romantic blooms. With so much to do and see your honeymoon in Beijing will give you enough memories to last a lifetime.
