You will be picked up from your Beijing hotel between 7:00 am-8:00 am by your English-speaking guide and driver. Our first stop will be the Forbidden City. The Forbidden City is the largest surviving palace complex in the world, and served the former home of the emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasty. The Forbidden City is one of the greatest attractions in the world. Built by the third Ming emperor between 1406-1422, the Forbidden City served as the official residence to the Emperor of China until the last emperor, Puyi, was forced to evacuate in 1924. The Forbidden City is divided into two parts. The southern section, or the Outer Court was where the emperor exercised his supreme power over the nation. The northern section, or the Inner Court, was where he lived with his royal family. Consisting of 980 buildings and with 8,707 bays of rooms, the Forbidden City is the best example of classical Chinese architecture in the world, and is a wonder to behold.

 

We'll tour the famous Tiananmen Square. Being the largest city square in the world, Tiananmen Square is the geographical center of Beijing City. It is the largest city square in the world, occupying an area of 440,000 square meters (about 109 acres), and able to accommodate 1,000,000 people at one time. The square is a conglomeration of splendid and beautiful flowers and the red national flag which flutters in the wind. The raising of the national flag is something which should not be missed by visitors to Tiananmen Square.

 

With the towering Monument to the People's Heroes at the center, Tiananmen Square has the magnificent Tiananmen Tower in the north, the solemn Mao Zedong Memorial Hall in the south, the National Museum of China in the east and the Great Hall of the People in the west. Surrounded by these lofty buildings, the Square looks most splendid and majestic and attracts many tourists every day.

 

In the center of the Square stands the Monument to the People's Heroes, which commemorates the martyrs who devoted their lives to the Chinese people. It reaches 37.94 meters (124 feet) which makes it the biggest monument in Chinese history. The body is made of hardy granite and is surrounded by white balusters. Engraved is the epigraph written by Mao Zedong, the founder of People's Republic of China. Eight reliefs depict the crucial events which took place in modern times, showing a part of the centuries-old history of China.

 

* Please send us your full name and passport number for us to buy the e-tickets of the Forbidden City in advance. Thank you for your understanding!

 

 

Following a Chinese lunch we’ll driver to the Summer Royal Palace. As its name implies, the Summer Palace was an imperial summer resort - an escape from the baking heat of the capital. It is a delightful collection of halls, shaded corridors, pavilions and gardens, set on a wooded hillside on the shore of an artificial lake. Its basic layout dates from the 18th century, when the emperor Qianlong extensively remodeled it, but in 1860 foreign troops on a punitive raid on Beijing burned it to the ground. It was rebuilt in 1888 under the guidance of the Dowager Empress Cixi, who loved the complex, and diverted funds from the Chinese navy for the project. Then the Summer Palace was destroyed again in 1900 by foreign forces as a reprisal for the Boxer Rebellion, and again it was rebuilt to Cixi's design. Today, it is one of China's grandest museum gardens. As its name implies, the Summer Palace was an imperial summer resort - an escape from the baking heat of the capital.

We will drop you off at your hotel around 6 pm. Due to the rush hour in Beijing, there can be a delay in the traffic. Thank you for your understanding!

 

 

Included: Personal transfer from and to your hotel within the downtown area, general admission to the Forbidden City and Summer Palace, English-speaking tour guide, quality minivan, and lunch.   

 

Pickups: To clarify, a group tour means that we will pick you up from place to place in the morning and that can take time. If you book a private tour then there would be no need to go around the city to pick up others. As you are probably well aware, Beijing traffic effects a lot of what we do, but nevertheless, we should have done a better job of communicating with you and giving you the most out of your day with us.

 

Drop-offs: We will drop you off at the nearest Subway Station close to your hotel once we finish this tour. This is because the rush hour traffic in Beijing is horrible enough for the tour bus to stop by every hotel in Beijing. Your guide will tell you the tip of how to take the subway, the only smooth way of transportation in Beijing.
