As the political and cultural capital of China, Beijing stands at the heart of Chinese history, buzzing with the energy of its high population density and centuries of importance.
Beijing is known for historic sites, museums, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: see Mutianyu Great Wall, get engrossed in the history at The Palace Museum, take some stellar pictures from Tiananmen Square (Tiananmen Guangchang), and steep yourself in history at Tian'anmen.

Melbourne, Australia to Beijing is an approximately 15- hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Melbourne to Beijing. Traveling from Melbourne in July, things will get much warmer in Beijing: highs are around 38°C and lows about 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Hong Kong.
