Another point of interest. Worth paying a visit and walk around. Entrances fees is required. The temples and park are well maintained. Great place for history bugs!

ambiance of the temple is spiritual and gives you sense of salvation. It is situated in a great garden and you need around at 2 hours visit both garden and the temple.

Visited in Dec’18 on one of the coldest days in Beijing. Nice pictures there as the sky was clear blue against the colorful temple of heaven. Place was not too crowded as it was the low season and that gave us very good opportunity to...More

I loved our stop here. It was pretty short, but the temple is beautiful. It is a nice area to walk around, as there are gardens around the temple.

Really great place to go for a walk, sit and watch people and enjoy the very nice garden. Didnt enter the temple but guess thats also worth a visit. Need to pay entrance

Spend at least an hour and see not only the beautiful temple but locals socializing in the gardens. Combine your visit to the Hongqiao market if you are interested

Hi Martha, I went with a coach bus tour. They were pretty good, cheap and on-time. We didn't have to queue at all when entering to any place.

Help Planning Stay in Beijing (3 Replies)
Hi All We finally booked out holiday (or as we like to put it our 3rd honeymoon) to china for August 2009. As part of our holiday we will be arriving to Beijing at 09:30 on a Thursday morning, staying for 6 nights and leaving Beijing for Shanghai at 17:30 on Wednesday evening. A bit of information about us we are in our Twenties (actually I hit 30 this year and the wife is still in her early twenties) so getting around and mobility is not an issue. We have travelled to the Far East...More

Great Wall: Strictly speaking, you don't really need a guide for any of this. You do need a way to get to the Great Wall, but a guide isn't much use once there. Hutongs: You can stroll around on your own, or hire a rickshaw guide on site. My guess is that hired guides may hire the rickshaw guide for you for the hutong, but perhaps some would show you around themselves. A guide or a guidebook with a guided walk can be helpful for this. Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace: you...More
First time in Beijing - please help (16 Replies)
Hi there, We are first timers in China, with smartours, but have a day and a half at leisure in Beijing. I was thinking one day we'd do: Forbidden City, Summerpalace and Temple of Heaven On the half day - i'd like to see the hutongs. In the evenings, we'd like to visit the night markets. Are they similar to ones in Bangkok (which we loved). Also , for vegetarian eating options - any suggestions? We are staying at the Courtyard Marriott. Thanks for your help.

Are not Smart Tours covering The Summer Palace, Forbidden City & Temple of Heaven or are you going back for a second visit ? The Summer Palace is very big so I don't think you will be able to fit in the Forbidden City as well, unless you rush. It's best to get an early start & get to the temple of Heaven by 6am. You will see local people out exercising, doing Tai Chi, Ballroom dancing. The Hutongs make a good 1/2 day tour. You can either do it yourself with a map or go with a tour...More
