All about the trip
Get picked by our tour guide at your hotel. Then head to Tiananmen Square, the largest public square of this kind in the world. Located in the heart of Beijing City, it is the site for massive parades and rallies. This was the site when in 1949, from a rostrum on Tiananmen (the Gate of Heavenly Peace), Chairman Mao proclaimed the establishment of the People's Republic of China.
Then move on to Forbidden City ( 2 hours ). The Forbidden City is the Chinese imperial palace from the mid-Ming Dynasty to the end of the Qing Dynasty (1644 -1911). For almost 500 years, it served as the seat-bed of the Emperors in Ming and Qing Dynasties as well as the ceremonial and political center of the Chinese government.
Proceed to the Temple of Heaven, the place where the Emperors prayed for peace and harvest. It is located in the southern part of Beijing and had been one of the holiest places for the whole country for more than five centuries. It is used as a complex of sacrificial buildings for the Ming and Qing emperors.
In the afternoon, continue to visit Summer Palace, one of China's largest imperial garden. Summer Palace was originally a royal garden and a temporary dwelling palace for emperors of the Qing Dynasty. Its predecessor was the Garden of Clear Ripples (Qingyiyuan) started in 1750 and burned down by the British and French allied troops in 1860.
