Tailor-made Beijing Holidays

While the great Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu said, ‘A good traveller has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving’, to get the best out of Beijing you’re going to have to ignore him on this occasion. Planning is essential to get the most from your trip. An ever-changing city which continues to evolve at lightening speed, Beijing is vast in size and soaked in stories from the historical past to the present day.

The Taoism designed chessboard streets are a feast for the eyes and at every turn you’ll be met with something you want to capture. But no visit would be complete without traversing the more traditional Hutongs for a taste of the ancient city. These centuries old settlements are full of life and stories, of children playing on the streets, old men perched on bamboo chairs, splitting open sunflower seeds and drinking tea. Here you’ll find the city’s heart.

You could spend weeks touring Beijing and still only scratch the surface. With our expert team on the ground, we’re confident we can help you understand this exceptional capital, find the perfect Peking duck and come up with your very own master plan.

Plan your holiday withAlfred&

Your journey will start with one of our UK team – someone like Annette, who's travelled extensively in China. They’ll shape your ideas into the trip of a lifetime. But they won't do it alone. They'll draw on the expertise of our contacts on the ground, connecting you to the people who'll make your holiday one you'll always remember - the guides who can take you to The Great Wall’s quietest spots, the villagers who can show you how to create your own lucky clay cat and the cooks who can rustle you up breakfast pancakes, Shanghai-style.
