Top Places to Visit in China on a 2-Week Trip - All the Fascinating Tourist Hotspots!

Exploring China in a span of two weeks can be quite challenging as the country is massive. Therefore, make sure to prioritise certain places in order to cover all the destinations that interest you! Here is a list of places you can check out!


The Great Wall of China

How can you come to China and not stop at the ancient capital city? There are a few must-visit things here in Beijing. And the list starts with the Great Wall of China, a wonder of the world. The Great Wall is a magnificent structure that showcases the brilliance of mankind. Hiking here should be a must. You must take the off beaten path and be blown away! With many places to cover in a short period, you might well look into a travel agent to plan out this trip for you. For instance, you can look into a travel agent in Sri Lanka the likes of Aitken Spence Holidays to plan out your China trip.


Beijing Hutongs

The next must-visit place in Beijing includes the hutongs. These are networks of traditional alleyways and street that cover pretty much the entire city. On a day tour in these networks, you will visit temples and towers and even lakes! So why wouldn't you want to explore this area, right?


Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City and the Jingshan Park

Another region in Beijing that you cannot miss out on is Tiananmen Square. You can explore this iconic place for about half an hour and then head to the Forbidden City which would take you at least two hours. This place is massive, and you can spend the entire day here being quite overwhelmed by all what it has to offer. Sources have claimed that even if you spend an entire lifetime here you might not be able to visit every single part of this massive place. Afterwards, it is time to head to the Jingshan Park where you'll be able to catch a spectacular view of the Forbidden City!


Terracotta Warriors

People come here to visit the Terracotta warriors. This would take an entire day and this army of life-size warriors go back in time to the very first Chinese Emperor. This is pretty much the equivalent of Egyptian pyramids. If you have time, squeeze in a day for a trip to Hua Shan. The place offers a hiking experience of your life.


Jiuzhaigou and Huang Long

This is one of the most spectacular places you will ever witness on this trip. You can hike all day long around though the azure-coloured rivers and lakes which reflects the clear blue skies above. This is a paradise for the photographs. Once you have explored Jiizahigou, you will have to head to the Huang Long the next day. The place is popular for its vividly coloured calcite deposit plunge pools, and this is why people named it the 'Huang Long' meaning 'fairyland'.
