Beijing - Things to Do With Three Days in Beijing, China
Beijing may not be on the sea, but it is still accessible to cruise ships as a pre- or post- cruise extension or as part of a Yangtze River Cruisetour. Here are some things to do if you have three days in Beijing--tour the Summer Palace, Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Great Wall of China, the Ming Tombs, and the Beijing Hutong.

Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and Imperial Palace of Beijing, China
Tiananmen Square, the Imperial Palace and the Forbidden City are some of the marvels of Beijing. Tiananmen Square is the world's largest plaza, and the Imperial Palace (also called the Forbidden City) is a magnificent royal residence. These palaces are on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Page 3.

Beijing Hutong Area - Old City Beijing
Beijing is a modern city, filled with new high-rise apartments. Some citizens still live in the old hutong area of the city. This picturesque area of Beijing is fast disappearing, and I am glad we had an opportunity to visit the hutong. Page 5.
