If you are specially interested in history, then I would suggest Beijing and Xi'an. They both are famous for their rich history, as well as the places where the signature landmarks of China located : Terra Cotta Warriors ( Xi'an) and the Great Wall (Beijing). Xi'an has the fame of the oldest city in China, has been capitals for 13 dynasties over 2000 years, with 73 emperors buried there. Beijing has been capitals for 5 dynasties until the very last one: Qing Dynasty, over 800 years history.

There are 7 cities in China have the fame of ancient capitals: Beijing, Xi'an, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Luoyang, Kaifeng, Anyang.
Within these seven, Beijing and Xi'an are much more famous, accessible, and have a lot to see. Of course, if you have time and interest, it would be an amazing trip to cover all the seven ancient capitals!

If you need help arranging your tour to China, I would be more than happy to help you! Please feel free to get some ideas from our destination page on our website: http://jiasdreamtours.com/destinations.h...

You must start with Xi'An, the first capital of China and one of the oldest civilizations in the world.  Visit the terra cotta warriors as was mentioned above, but also don't forget to stop off at Banpo Neolithic Village (usually you can get these two as a package - they are both a good drive outside the city).  Banpo village is an excavation and recreation of a 6000 year old village where you can still see the remains of huts and fire pits.  You can see how the ancients fired kilns for pottery.  It is really cool if you are interested in early humans. 

The city of Xi'An itself has many historical sites, like the city wall that you can bike around (14km trip, rent bike on top of wall)   It is a really wide wall with guardhouses and replica weapons along the way.  Also, there are signs that show you sites and tell you interesting tidbits along the way.  I would recommend it.  Also, don't miss the Bell Tower and Drum Tower, and the pagodas.

The next most important place to stop is Beijing.  You will want to chek out Tiananmen Square (just the size of it is amazing) before paying a fee and exploring the Forbidden City.  This place is extensive, so do not think that you will only spend a couple hours and see it all.  If you do only want to spend a few hours instead of all day, I would suggest getting a map and figuring out which buildings/parts you want to see first, then walk in a planned way.  The architecture is amazing and if history is your interest, it might be useful to rent the audio guide.

You will also want to see the Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven.  Temple of Heaven is peaceful and very park-like, but make sure you get there early enough to see the sections you want before they start closing at 16:00.  There is also a good museum in Beijing, but I did not get to see it.  Oh, and i would also suggest the Great Wall - Mutianyu section has a cable car up and down.

I would say that these are the two must-see cities in China for history, but if you have time and funds, you may want to think about seeing Nanjing (previous capital), and Shanghai (great museum here) with a day triip to Suzhou (old city on the Yangtze). 

Hope this helps and have fun travelling China!
