Shisanling Ming Tombs

The Ming tombs lie in a broad valley to the south of Tianshou (Longevity of Heaven) Mountain in Changping County, about 50 kilometers northwest of Beijing proper. To the southwest of this valley, a branch of the Yanshan Range suddenly to breaks off and forms a natural gateway to the 40-quare-kilometer basin in which the tombs were built. This gateway is "defended" on each side by the Dragon and Tiger hills, which are said to protect this sacred area from winds carrying evil influences. Thirteen out of the 16 Ming emperors are buried in this peaceful valley.

Kangxi Grassland

Though it's hard to imagine if all you know of Beijing is the chaos of the city, it's an easy day trip to a spacious grassland covering rolling hills and plains dotted with groves of trees—and little else. The Kangxi Grasslands stretch alongside the shore of Guanting Reservoir, covering over 20 square km (around 8 square miles) of countryside.

A popular destination for outdoor activities including fishing, bird watching, horse and camelback riding and archery, the grasslands offer a taste of Inner Mongolia, complete with yurts, Mongolian song, dance, milk tea, kumiss (a fermented milk beverage), cheeses and roast rabbit and goat. Summer evenings often feature a bonfire accompanied by Mongolian song, food and drink. But the grasslands' greatest appeal for many is simply open space and relatively untrammeled nature, making them perfect for a simple, relaxed bit of hiking and picnicking on a balmy day.
