Trek through Beijing, Bangkok and Shanghai. The People's Republic of China is a fascinating destination with incredible sights and attractions. Here, the landscape is as beautiful as its people. But the land also holds many secrets. The capital and political center is Beijing, in the northern part of the country. Previously known as Peking, it's home to amazing ancient imperial sights. In Beijing, you can wander through the glory of China, past and present. But the best place to start is the Forbidden City.
Bangkok is known as the City of Angels. And I believe that's partly due to the heavenly views. From its vistas on the Chao Phraya River to its stunning cityscape. Visually, it's amazing. Despite all its beauty, many first time visitors find Bangkok a bit overwhelming. The traffic, the crowds. Basically, the excitement of a big Asian city. But there are secret pleasures to be found all over the city. Let's start our peaceful tour of Bangkok with a trip to some of the more spiritual spots. If you're going to a temple, the must-see in Bangkok is the Temple of the Dawn or the Wat Arun.
The People's Republic of China is communist, yes. But Shanghai is surprisingly dynamic and modern. With great shopping, nightlife, entertainment, and some of the best hotels in Asia. Shanghai is located in central China on the East China Sea. And is the country's most famous port city. There is no better place to soak up Chinese culture. Old Town is affectionately called the Bright Pearl of Shanghai.
