Your exploration begins with a visit to Tiananmen Square, a holy place to Chinese people where many constructions of historical and monumental significance are standing. Strolling across till its north end, you will reach the world's largest and best-preserved imperial palace complex, the Forbidden City, where 24 emperors have lived with their royal families. To avoid the mass-produced food at the cheap tourist eateries arranged by most agencies, we will serve you an a la carte lunch (valued at CNY150.00 per person and included in our price) at a noted local restaurant, where you could taste authentic Chinese food. The afternoon excursion will then take you to the Temple of Heaven, where the emperors worshiped the heaven and prayed for grain harvest and rainfall. It is the existing largest and highest ranking complex of sacred places in China. During the evening, a lively Chinese Kung Fu Show will be arranged at the Red Theatre.
In the morning, you will travel to Badaling to visit one of the greatest man-made projects on earth, the Great Wall of China. On the dragon-like winding wall, you will behold beacon towers lying at some advantageous strategic forts as well as the charming natural scenery at the foot of the wall. To avoid having lunch at shopping site restaurants, we will drive you to have Sichuan cuisine lunch at a popular local restaurant around noon. Afterwards, you will continue the trip to the Sacred Way, which is a rather long road decorated by stone statues and plants on both sides, leading you to the Ming Tomb. Based on Chinese traditional Feng-shui theory, the Ming Tomb is a harmonious combination of mausoleum constructions, mountains, and rivers. On the way back to downtown, stop off at the Bird's Nest (Olympic National Stadium), where you could admire the marvelous building at close quarters.
The morning excursion will take you to a well-preserved royal garden, the Summer Palace. Renowned for its beautiful landscape and spectacular architecture, the Summer Palace has been listed in the World Heritage Sites and considered as one of the most classical gardens of the world. After enjoying a tasty a la carte lunch (valued at CNY100.00 per person and included in our price) at a delicate local restaurant, you will proceed to visit the Lama Temple, the largest and best-preserved Tibetan Buddhist monastery in the city. To conclude the day, a Hutong Tour is arranged. Hutong is a typical lane or narrow street between rows of courtyards. Different from the Forbidden City, which is the symbol of the royal family, the winding Hutongs present the common Beijingners' lives.
Your pleasant China tour will come to an end as we transfer you to the airport and help you board your flight back home.
