Current Entry Restrictions for Scenic Spots in and Around Beijing

As we may have mentioned once or twice over the past few weeks, now is the best time of year to see Beijing at its most beautiful!  Having said that, it would be irresponsible of us to suggest people get out and about right now, both because we’re in the middle of the Labour Day holiday and because of the current coronavirus situation.

While China and especially Beijing have managed to control the situation very well, it is only through continued vigilance and caution that we can avoid a second wave and keep ourselves and our loved ones safe and sound.

Of course, once the holidays end (officially May 6th) and the crowds thin, it would be a great time to get out and start taking in the sights and sounds again! And if that’s something you plan on doing, this list of entry requirements for Beijing’s top scenic spots, compiled by the experts at Amber Travel in conjunction with Cultural Keys, will be invaluable!
