Plan your Beijing Holiday

There are so many reasons to travel to Beijing. A sports enthusiast may go to tour the facilities that were created in and around this vibrant city for the 2008 Olympic Games. A lover of ancient history can enjoy the numerous and formidable ancient buildings and learn more about their cultural and historical significance. The Imperial Palace alone is comprised of 800 different and unique buildings. Be sure to buy your tickets to Beijing vey far in advance if you plan on coming during the Spring Festival. It attracts thousands of tourists every year.

The prime season for tourist travel to Beijing is during the summer months and then again during the Spring Festival. A good time to avoid the tourist influx and still have excellent weather is September and October. Cheap hotels in Beijing are also more abundant during this time. Spring is another excellent time to come, outside of the Spring Festival of course. Flight deals to Beijing are available throughout the year and are easy to find with Etihad’s Deals section.

Major Airports in Champaign-Urbana

The Champaign-Urbana metropolitan area is serviced primarily by the University of Illinois Willard Airport (CMI). Dedicated in 1945, Willard Airport was the second-busiest airport in Illinois by 1969, until U.S. Regulation made regional airline service there less economical. Today, only a few commuter flights service the airport, and a bulk of the traffic moving through is related to the student body from the nearby University of Illinois.
