13 Best Things to Do in Beijing While Traveling for Business

For many business travelers, their off hours are the highlight of any work trip. Especially in a vibrant, dynamic city like Beijing, business travel doesn’t have to be all work – there’s no reason you can’t make time for play. In between meetings, after the workday ends, and well into the night hours, there are so many things to do, places to see, and people to meet. Beijing offers the best of both worlds to visitors, combining a variety of ancient sites and historic landmarks with many ultra-modern, cosmopolitan hot spots.


If you’re planning to visit Beijing for business, here are the top 13 things you’ll want to make time to experience:

  1. Visit the 798 Arts District. The 798 District is the highlight of Beijing’s flourishing arts, scene, located in several renovated warehouse buildings. Artists began congregating in the area in the 1990s, and it’s now home to an impressive number of hip galleries, eateries, cafes, and bars.
  2. Explore the City on a Self-Guided Bike Tour. Avoid the notorious city traffic and make the most of your downtime by getting around the city via bike, with easy rentals available through many companies like Serk. You can even take a guided bicycle tour through organizations like Bike Beijing, which offers options that appeal to a variety of interests.
  3. See Beijing Come Alive After Dark. The city’s nightlife scene has something to offer for everyone and is a particularly good option for busy business travelers. Your daytime hours might be filled with meetings and conference calls, but once you’re free after dark, there’s plenty still here to see and do. Hotspots throughout Beijing include The Tiki Bungalow, School Live Bar, and Xian.
  4. Check Out a Chinese Kung Fu Show. Kung fu is a type of martial arts based on Chinese philosophy and has deep roots in Chinese culture. A handful of Beijing theaters like the Red Theater offer spectacular performances that highlight the incredible beauty and strength of kung fu, often combined with acrobatic feats and exciting music.
  5. Experience Life like a Local in the Hutong Alleys. Located in old Beijing, the Hutong Alleys are a collection of winding passageways favorited by local residents. The best time to check out the area is after dark when locals have returned home after work and school - you might just find yourself joining a friendly game of mahjong or enjoying a live musical performance with traditional Chinese instruments.
  6. Take a Date on a Street Food Tour. Beijing is famous for its diverse and delicious street food, cooked up by street vendors who are no stranger to the flavor. One of the top spots to enjoy the city’s best street food is Wangfujing Snack Street, where you can chow down on fried dumplings, sticky rice rolls, and even some exotic delicacies.
  7. Climb Scenic Hill at Dusk. End your workday early enough to head to Scenic Hill (“Jingshan”) before dark, so you can take in the jaw-dropping sunset view of the Forbidden City. As the sun falls, the entire area is bathed in golden rays, making it a must-see side of Beijing.
  8. Sip High-End Cocktails at an Exclusive Bar. Rub elbows with Beijing’s most beautiful at one of its high-end cocktail bars and lounges, where you can enjoy the pleasant buzz of a delicious craft cocktail or brew. A few swanky favorites include The Black Moth, Infusion Room, and Botany.
  9. Look for Treasure at the Panjiayuan Antiques Market. If generic souvenirs aren’t your style, you can find the perfect travel memento at the Panjiayuan Antiques Market. Thousands of vendors offer a variety of antique reproductions, jewelry, furniture, and more, perfect for the discerning shopper.
  10. Walk Along the Great Wall. No trip to Beijing is complete without a trip to the iconic Great Wall of China. You can easily access one of its main sections just an hour outside Beijing, complete with a large souvenir shop and gondolas for easy transportation up the wall.
  11. Visit one of Beijing’s Ancient Temples. There’s no shortage of ancient sites throughout Beijing, so it’s easy to make a short trip to experience local culture and history. Its awe-inspiring temples are often impressively ornate, with some – like the Buddhist Lama Temple - still serving as functioning spaces for the city’s religious organizations.
  12. Enjoy the Peaceful Surroundings of the Summer Palace. The Summer Palace was used as a restful retreat by China’s royalty, and the area still maintains a sense of tranquility today. It’s the perfect spot to relax after a busy day of work, enjoying the scenic, quiet surroundings.
  13. Stop by Olympic Park. Beijing hosted the 2008 Summer Olympics, marking the pivotal event with the construction of Olympic Park.
