The Great Wall is 6350km long and was a mammoth defense bulwark that serpentined its way across mountains and valleys in the northern part of the country in China’s feudal years. Construction of the Great Wall began in the 7th century BC. But it was Qinshihuang, the founding emperor of the first unifying dynasty Qin, who brought it to completion. Repeated extensions were done in later dynasties until the Ming. Juyongguan (pass) is in the 18-kilometer (11 mi)-long Guangou Valley. The pass is one of the three greatest mountain passes of the Great Wall of China.
Changling spot is located in Changping District of Beijing, and on the south of Tianshou mountain peak. It was a famous buried mausoleum of the third emperor of the Ming Dynasty and his wife empress.
The Bird’s nest is the main stadium for the twenty-ninth Olympic Games in 2008. The Water Cube is the main water stadium for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, which is located in the Olympic Park. It is used for swimming, synchronized swimming and diving events during the Olympic Games.

Tiananmen Square, the Imperial Palace, Wangfujing, Temple of Heaven (Beijing Roast Duck for Lunch)
Tiananmen, located in the center of Beijing City, next to the south of the Imperial Palace, is the gate of Ming, Qing two generations. The People's Republic of China held a founding ceremony here in October 1, 1949, which became the symbol of the modern China and is designed into the national emblem. Over a hundred years, many ceremonies and demonstrations have been held here. Tian'anmen Gate (Gate of Heavenly Peace) was built in the 15th century and restored in the 17th century. From imperial days, the yellow glaze-tiled double-eave tower functioned as a rostrum for proclaiming pronouncements to assembled masses. The gate leads to an imperial city -- the Forbidden City.
Established in 1925, the Palace Museum is located in the imperial palace of the consecutive Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties. The magnificent architectural complex, also known as the Forbidden City, and the vast holdings of paintings, calligraphy, ceramics, and antiquities of the imperial collections make it one of the most prestigious museums in China and the world. In 1961, the State Council designated the former imperial residence as one of China's foremost-protected cultural heritage sites, and in 1987 it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The Temple of Heaven is located in southern Beijing. It was first constructed in 1420, the 18th year of the reign of Ming emperor Yongle, and was extended and renovated during the reigns of Ming emperor Jiajing and Qing emperor Qianlong. It was the place where the emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties would worship the god of heaven and pray for good harvest. Covering an area of 273 hectares, it is the largest architectural complex in the world for rituals to pay homage to heaven. In 1998, the Temple of Heaven was inscribed on the World Heritage List by the UNESCO. With profound cultural connotations and imposing architectural styles, the Temple of Heaven is considered a reflection of the ancient civilization of the Orient.
