Weekend Getaways from Beijing
My AIESEC internship was a teaching project to China, across 3 cities with free food, free accommodation and paid travel within China. All I had to pay for was my air tickets.You can have a special skill like teaching football or a particular language or be not so specially skilled like me you are bound to find something for yourself. A friend of mine got a paid internship to Egypt. All he had to do was go around Egypt taking photographs. the project was called 'For the Love of Egypt'. And guess what all was covered: free food, free accommodation, half of the air fares reimbursed and a cruise in the river Nile. This is like the perfect deal.So, I highly highly recommend all the youngsters to find an AIESEC Chapter nearby ASAP.ZOSTELS:

Temple of Heaven (Tiantan Park)
The next day after breakfast we went for sightseeing. Our first stop was the Temple of Heaven where Beijing’s seniors gather each morning to enjoy a variety of activities; from badminton and Tai Chi to street opera and ballroom dancing, This is a true taste of Chinese community life! Of course you also visit the magnificent temple itself.
Great Wall at Mutianyu
It was an amazing experience to see the Great Wall Of China and to set your feet on it as you have only heard and learned about in Books and Television only. But the feeling you get when you see thousands of people from all around the world and even you are part of it. It is as beautiful as we all have seen in pictures.
Tiananmen Square (Tiananmen Guangchang)
The Tian'AnMen Square is known as the spiritual heart of China. Famous for its historical events, like demonstrations on May 4th, 1999, that inspired young Chinese to fight imperialists and warlords, and build a strong independent country. The Gate of Heavenly Peace is on the square's north end. And at the center of the square is the 40m-high Monument to the People's heroes and Chairman Mao’s Mausoleum. Also, the Great Hall of the People lies on the west along with the Museum of Chinese History.
Gate of Heavenly Peace (Tian'an Men)
Most people visit Tian'anmen Square on their way to the Forbidden City. Both can be done together in a morning or afternoon. Tian'anmen Square is the largest public square in the world. It is arguably the most-visited site in Beijing. It lies on the historical central axis going through the Forbidden City.
National Center for the Performing Arts
An institution when it comes to live performances, the NCPA opened in 1969 on land reclaimed from the sea. The multi-venue centre has five auditoriums to host a range of performances, from intimate classical dance performances and poetry readings to concerts and plays.
