Highlights
    What to Expect
    In the morning, your guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel at about 09:00am. Your pleasant trip begins with a visit to the world's largest urban city square, Tian'anmen Square.

    Afterwards, you will stroll across the square to its north end, where the Forbidden City is at. Covering an area of about 74 hectares, the Forbidden City is the world's largest and best-preserved imperial palace complex which boasts splendid Chinese ancient constructions and numerous historical relics. You could get some insights about China's feudal hierarchy from the lay-out and decorations of the constructions.

    Lunch is at your own cost.  Your guide is happy to recommend you some advice about the nice restaurants nearby.

    The afternoon sightseeing will start by visiting the Temple of Heaven, which is even larger than the Forbidden City, for it is considered as the dwelling of the heaven in ancient times. Then you will come to the Summer Palace. It is the existing largest royal garden in China, once used as a temporary palace and summer resort by the royal families. Absorbed the architecture styles of south China, north China and even foreign countries, the garden got the reputation of the 'Museum of Imperial Garden'.

    After the whole day’s sightseeing, your guide will escort you back to your hotel in Beijing.
