What to Expect
Your tour guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel at 8:30.a.m. Firstly, you will visit The Temple of Heaven.It was built in 1420 with a total area of 674 acres, this is the largest building for religious worship in China, which was originally used by the Ming and Qing emperors to pay homage to Heaven and to pray for a year of rich harvest. Nice park to while away an hour or two for listening to singing and music, and watching the locals going about their lives.

Followed by Tiananmen Square, which is the largest city center square in the world. It's named after the Tiananmen Gate (Gate of Heavenly Peace) located to its North, separating it from the Forbidden City. It has great cultural significance as it was the site of several important events in Chinese history. The Forbidden City was the Chinese imperial palace from the Ming Dynasty to the end of the Qing Dynasty. It is located in the center of Beijing. For almost 600 years, it served as the home of emperors and their households, as well as the ceremonial and political center of Chinese government.

After enjoy an authentic Chinese lunch, head to the Summer Palace, the largest and best-preserved of the surviving imperial garden.Once a summer retreat for emperors, this 716-acre park is still a retreat for tourist, who can relax here or stroll around ancient pavilions, mansions, temples, bridges and huge lake, stopping occasionally at a shop or tea-house. Much-loved summer retreat of the Imperial families, the lovely landscaped gardens, halls, pavilions and corridors are set around the lake and rivers in natural harmony.

You will be transferred back to your hotel after the tour is finished.
