If you have seen most of Beijing's main tourist attractions and is willing to see something out of the mainstream, Peking Man is a good option. Unfortunately, the main cave was blocked due to a construction. They are building a huge cover and looks like it is going to be great when finished. Nevertheless, there is a nice trail around the park. It is very well kept and way above regular Chinese standards. It is clean, full of signs and pleasant to see. Worth to see if you have plenty of time in Beijing.

The site is an active dig, but you cant see any of the activity. I suggest going to the museum first and buy tickets for the show as they are limited then go to the site and finish up at the museum. The museum is very interactive and a must go.

I went to the Peking Man World Heritage site by public buses from Beijing and it is quite a lengthy journey. The area is well looked after with neatly trimmed paths, good signposts and viewing points. I found the caves fascinating even though there is not so much to see. As a child, I was always interested in 'cavemen' and this was the real thing. There are interesting explanations in English at the various stopping points on the trail and you can go inside some of the caves.

Since my children were learning about stone age etc, we thought it would be a good place for a little education in the midst of our holiday. Old fossils and bones are displayed with explanation in a museum. There is even a 3D film about the Peking Man but only two shows per day (one at 10am and another at 3.30pm approx). A good learning experience for both young and old about the evolution of mankind.

We had previously done most of the more well known attractions of Beijing so decided on a visit to this site. The new Museum that has just opened is first class and would be enjoyed by all including children. It is about 45 minutes from the centre of Beijing but other attractions such as the Stone Flower caves and the Logue Bridge can be included in a one day trip.
First class and thoroughly enjoyed
