The weather in Beijing falls into four seasons; autumn, which begins in August and runs through October is the nicest time to visit. Temperatures are generally comfortable and the area is largely free of precipitation. Bear in mind however, this is prime tourist season and the attractions tend to be crowded this time of year.
When visiting Beijing, the first site many people visit is The Great Wall. A particularly special section worth seeing is The Great Wall at Badalang. Approximately 60 kilometres northwest of Beijing, this area of The Wall is very representative of the Ming Dynasty, and is renowned worldwide for its scenic beauty and has been visited by more than 420 foreign leaders and heads of state.
