The deal: After garnering much public attention from the 2008 Summer Olympics, Beijingcontinues to rake in tourists with its ancient cultural legacy and proverbial sites such as the Forbidden City and Great Wall of China.

However, you don’t have to just visit this far-off city in your dreams, because between November 1 and March 16, 2011, ChinaSpree.com is offering an unbelievable 8-day trip to Beijing starting from as little as $555* per person — with accommodations in a brand-new hotel, daily breakfast, and round-trip airfare from the United States included. That’s almost half of what you’d have to dole out if you packaged this trip yourself!

In addition to package rates bottoming out, ChinaSpree.com is offering jet-setters more tantalizing incentives such as the chance to book optional tours. Starting from $50 per person, including lunch, these action-packed sightseeing expeditions will take you to the world-famous Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Great Wall of China, and Temple of Heaven — all of which are certain to provide you with a greater understanding and appreciation of the Chinese heritage.

*This package can also be booked from New York City for just $855 per person. Don’t live in the Big Apple or San Francisco? Check out our Quicksearch! for connecting flights to these cities.

The dollars: Rates are based on double occupancy. Air taxes, fees, fuel surcharges, and China Visas are additional.

The catch: Fortune cookies not included.
