What you can expect

Visit Beijing's historic destinations and explore its rich history, fascinating architecture and impressive traditions on this full-day tour. Explore the imperial Forbidden City, historical Summer Palace, harmonious Temple of Heaven and stroll around the Tiananmen Square.

Your tour begins with a hotel pick-up in the morning and a visit to Tiananmen Square. Stroll around this iconic symbol of China that tells the stories of its communist past and feudalism but is surrounded by modern skyscrapers.

Continue your tour with a visit to the Forbidden City. This imperial palace is a powerful symbol of the strength and wealth held by emperors from many dynasties. Be amazed at the traditional architecture and preserved structures of the 980 buildings covering 180 acres (72 ha).

Break for a delicious Chinese lunch before visiting the grand Summer Palace royal park. Then, head to the Temple of Heaven, a worship place fit for an emperor. Marvel at the grand architecture and see where emperors during the Ming and Qing dynasties visited to pray and offer sacrifices for a good harvest.

After an eventful and interesting day, make a stop at a Chinese silk shop before continuing your journey back to your hotel in air-conditioned transport.
