    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Tiananmen Square (Tiananmen Guangchang), West Changan Street, Dongcheng District, Beijing 100006 China

    Tian’anmen Square is at the very centre of the modern city of Beijing. Bounded to the north by Tiananmen Gate and the Rostrum, to the west by the Great Hall of the People, to the east by the Museum of the Chinese Revolution and the Museum of Chinese History, and to the south by the imposing Qianmen Gate. Covering 44 hectares, it is the largest public square in the world. In the center of the square are the Monument to the People’s Heroes and the Chairman Mao Memorial Hall where Mao Tse Tung’s embalmed body lies in state. It was from the Rostrum that Mao proclaimed the People’s Republic of China on the 1st of October 1949. The most recognisable feature of the Rostrum is Mao’s portrait; a required backdrop for any photo visitors may take of themselves.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Forbidden City-The Palace Museum, No.4 Jingshanqian Street, Dongcheng District, Beijing 100009 China

    Forbidden City, so called because it was off limits to commoners throughout the history of Imperial China. Commoners caught in the Palace during this period were executed. Only once a year was a ‘commoner’ allowed to pass through the central gate of the entrance to the city (reserved for the passage of the Emperor). From this Palace the emperors governed China, often rather erratically, as they tended to become lost in this self contained little world and rarely left it. A truly great monument to a great civilization.

    Duration: 3 hours

    Stop At: Juyongguan Great Wall, Great wall of China, Changping, Beijing,, Beijing China

    Juyongguan [First Pass under the Heavens] is located in an 18 kilometer-long valley named "Guangou" 50 kilometers from Beijing City. It was one of the three most important passes on the Great Wall of China during the Ming and Qing dynasties. The other two passes are Jiayuguan and Shanhaiguan The present Pass was initially built in the Ming Dynasty. It is a very important strategic place connecting the inner land and the area near the northern border of China and as the access point to the capitol, Beijing.

    Duration: 2 hours

    We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Grace and Gray Line tours. We had an excellent tour of the Forbidden City and Great Wall. The stops at the silk, jade, and tea factories were high-class and not overly-pressured to purchase something. Excellent job.

    Thank austrtexbill
