Beijing, one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China, is full of places of historic interest. We provide the elaborate-designed 2-day packages for you to explore the highlights of Beijing. Our routes will take you to visit as many as possible in your limited time.
In the early morning, our guide will pick you up from your hotel. To begin with, we will come to visit Tiananmen Square, situated at the very heart of Beijing city and known as the largest urban square around the world. After that, we will proceed to visit the Forbidden City. Recognized as one of the most important five palaces in the world, the Forbidden City will expose to you the prosperity of the Ming and Qing dynasties (14th century to early 20th century). At noon, you will be served with an a la carte lunch at a local restaurant to taste Chinese cuisine. After lunch, we will continue to the Summer Palace, a luxurious royal garden for royal families to rest and entertain. After visiting a pearl factory, we will transfer you back to your hotel.
Accommodation: Penta Hotel **** (Standard Room)
Today we will depart for Mutianyu Great Wall (a round-way cable car is included). The Mutianyu Section of the Great Wall was built 1500 years ago and today’s wall is a replica of the fortifications of 1568. It is less crowded and has better architecture than at Badaling, with more watchtowers. You will have more time and space to enjoy the gorgeous wall and breath-taking scenery. In the afternoon, we will lead you to enjoy a Hutong tour by riding a special rickshaw. As the symbol of Beijing City, a hutong has its own layout and structure. You will have the chance to close to the common people’s lives and explore a different Beijing city. After a visit to a silk factory, we will transfer you back to your hotel.
