No trip to Beijing would be complete without a meal of delicious Peking Duck – tender and roasted to perfection, it’s the best we’ve ever tasted. Their Chinese Dumplings (Dim Sum) and fresh seafood is also incredible.

The Best Time To Visit Beijing
The best time to visit Beijing is in the Spring and late Autumn when there is little rainfall – April, May, September, October and early to mid-November. June-August is hot and humid and mid-November-March is very cold. We visited Beijing in October and the weather was perfect 🙂
