Great Wall: Like a giant dragon snaking its way 4000 miles across China's northern borders, the Great Wall stands today as a bastion of culture in the hearts and minds of the Chinese people. Constructed in 220 BC, this sprawling defense system was originally built to protect against northern invaders, but stands today as one of the world's greatest wonders. As you climb its ancient steps, pause to admire sweeping views of China's ever-changing landscapes.

Forbidden City: Built in 1406 to 1420, the complex consists of 980 buildings with roughly 9,000 bays of rooms and covers 720,000 m2 (7,800,000 sq ft). The palace complex exemplifies traditional Chinese palatial architecture, and has influenced cultural and architectural developments in East Asia and elsewhere. The Forbidden City was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987, and is listed by UNESCO as the largest collection of preserved ancient wooden structures in the world.The Forbidden City was the Chinese imperial palace from the Ming Dynasty to the end of the Qing Dynasty. It is located in the middle of Beijing, China, and now houses the Palace Museum. For almost five hundred years, it served as the home of emperors and their households, as well as the ceremonial and political center of Chinese government.

Terra Cotta Warriors: Buried in the mausoleum of China's First Emperor, Qin Shi Huang, the Terracotta Warriors are one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of the 20th century. The standing army of life-size warriors was commissioned by Qin to enforce his rule over the afterlife. They remained buried underground until 1974 when farmers digging a well unearthed a terracotta head. Since then, the famed Terracotta Warriors have been attracting thousands of visitors worldwide who come to witness this spectacular piece of China's historic past.

Summer Palace or��Yihe Yuan, is a palace in Beijing, China. The Summer Palace is mainly dominated by Longevity Hill and the Kunming Lake. It was entirely man made and the excavated soil was used to build Longevity Hill. In the Summer Palace, one finds a variety of palaces, gardens, and other classical-style architectural structures. The Summer Palace started out life as the Garden of Clear Ripples in 1750. Artisans reproduced the garden architecture styles of various palaces in China. Kunming Lake was created by extending an existing body of water to imitate the West Lake in Hangzhou. The palace complex suffered two major attacks���during the Anglo-French allied invasion of 1860, and during the Boxer Rebellion, in an attack by the eight allied powers in 1900. The garden survived and was rebuilt in 1886 and 1902. In 1888, it was given the current name, Yihe Yuan. It served as a summer resort for Empress Dowager Cixi, who diverted 30 million taels of silver, said to be originally designated for the Chinese navy (Beiyang Fleet), into the reconstruction and enlargement of the Summer Palace.In December 1998, UNESCO included the Summer Palace on its World Heritage List.
