... And The Rise Of Michael Phelps
Beijing is a wonderful mix of old and new. You can visit the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Temple of Heaven, the Summer Palace, and the Ming Tombs. At the same time, you can visit the 2008 Olympic sites (where Michael Phelps became a household name) and see the massive rise in infrastructure. Also, be sure to speak with your advisor about foodie options. Some of the Beijing dishes are to die-for.
