Day 2 Beijing (B)
After breakfast, you are picked up from the hotel lobby by your guide and enjoy a full day sightseeing tour of Beijing.
Start at Tian An Men Square, the largest public plaza in the world where Mao Tse Tung first raised the flag of the People’s Republic.
Afterwards, we access to the Forbidden City via the Gate of Heavenly Peace. The Imperial Palace, lying inside the Forbidden City and surrounded by a high wall and broad moat, is probably China’s greatest surviving historical site. Dating from the 15th century, the Palace was home to a total of 24 emperors and today, its fabulous halls, palaces and gardens house a huge collection of priceless relics from various dynasties.
This afternoon, we visit to the lavish Summer Palace, the former retreat for the imperial family that is one of the finest examples of Garden Architecture in China. More than 100 traditional architecture to be found in the Summer Palace including pavilions, terraces, temples, pagodas, waterside gazebos, covered corridors, stone bridges and the famous marble boat. Being the largest and most well-preserved royal park in China, it greatly influences Chinese horticulture and landscape with its famous natural views and cultural interests, which also has long since been recognized as ‘The Museum of Royal Gardens’.
Day 3 Beijing (B/L/D)
Morning excursion to the Mutianyu Great Wall, a less crowded section of the wall, considered one of the most spectacular with numerous guard towers and stirring views. It’s a thrill to walk along the Great Wall of China – a formidable construction that winds its way over hills for more than 2,000 miles.
Lunch at local restaurant.
In the afternoon visit the Ming Tombs, the burial site of 13 Ming Dynasty emperors, with its impressive Spirit Way.
Enjoy a Peking Duck Dinner tonight.
Day 4 Beijing (B/L/D)
This morning at the Temple of Heaven, you may join or watch the locals out doing Tai Chi, Qigong, fan dance or disco as morning exercise. The majestic Temple of Heaven was once used by the Chinese emperors as a place to mediate affairs between God and man.
Afternoon, visit the Hutong by pedicab and take a leisurely stroll through the 700-year old narrow, winding streets that surround the Forbidden City. Watch the daily routines of the local people in their courtyard homes.
