On a trip to China in November 2011, we visited Beijing (Temple of Heaven Park, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Yuanming Yuan and Panjiayuan Market). We also hiked 5 miles along the Great Wall at Jinshanling, about 90 minutes northeast of Beijing.
Although not in the "vicinity" of Beijing --- it's a 1 1/2 hour flight or 11 hour train ride to the west of there) --- I'm including Xi'an, the ancient capital of China where the first Emperor Qin Shi Huang was buried along with his famous retinue of terra cotta soldiers.
So, I searched for other gigapan members who'd passed the same way, found pictures of the same subjects and added them to the gallery. The panoramas in this gallery are the result.
