Beijing is a city of adventure. And you can be Indiana Jones in Beijing, enjoying adrenaline rushes and trying new foods, activities and seeing exotic sights. Beijing will excite you, wow you and leave you eager for more heart-pumping, spine-tingling fun.
Start off any adventure travel in China with a trip to the less explored sections of the Great Wall. Simatai and Mutianyu are less touristy and offer more in the way of real rock jumping, seeing the original chunks of wall and a bit more history than the Badaling section of the wall where most tourists go. Don't end up on a section of the wall covered in T-shirt vendors, slap on a leather cowboy hat and whip and head to the real deal.
And if you are interested in exotic, adventurous foods than Beijing has several options to shock you and keep your heart pumping. The edible adventure tour offers insight into Chinese cuisine while the Night Market gives you the chance to roam around choosing a meal of scorpion, spider and silk worm-- all of which are not only edible but offer various health benefits as well.
You can work off the newly acquired weight from the night market with a bit of early morning tai chi. Join the locals at China's most cherished exercise habit and learn to center your chi and balance your life-- something you'll need before you jump in with the flying man club or the go carting crazies-- both active in Beijing.
Finally, relax while enjoying new sensations by strolling along famous Nanluoguxiang, an alley of shops and bars in an old hutong style village in central Beijing. Afterward, try cupping or acupuncture, a bit of health adventure at a trusted spa where you'll have more of your yin and yang prodded in the name of health.
