After breakfast, start to explore the historical face of Beijing with a brief visit to Tiananmen Square, one of the largest public squares in the world and among the most well-known historical sites in China. Continue on to the Forbidden City, a huge palace complex of more than 9,000 rooms where 24 emperors of Ming and Qing Dynasties used to live in. Explore its serene courtyards and its stately rooms before climbing the artificial coal hill behind it for spectacular views of Beijing’s sprawling skyline.

In the afternoon, visit the Summer Palace, built by Emperor Qianlong as a gift to his mother in the 18th century. Wander through the tranquil grounds where imperial staff would flee from the stifling rooms of the Forbidden City during summer. Grab a refreshing beverage in the shady grounds before wandering through its famous pavilions and scenic lakes.

After the visit, return to Beijing’s downtown. Then have dinner at Niujie Snack Street. This street is full of Muslim flavors and old Beijing flavors. The special snacks sold here include sticky rice with sweet fillings, boiled sheep innards (Baitang Zasui), dried fruit dish (Guozi Gan), pancakes with sweetened bean paste filling, stir-fried tofu, beefsteaks (beef first boiled, then steamed), ect... Mutton cooked in different ways can also be enjoyed here.

After breakfast, drive about 70km to the Mutianyu Section of the Great Wall to witness one of the world’s most spectacular sights. Zig zagging some 6000 kilometres across barren hills, deserts and mountains, the now partially ruinous Great Wall stretches from east to west in northern China and was constructed over a period of 2000 years. The wall is steep in sections but the photo opportunities are well worth the effort. There may also be an opportunity to settle down for a picnic lunch on the Great Wall, while savouring superb views of the countryside.

OPTIONAL: Those who do not want to hike down can use cable car or toboggan ride to the base (additional costs apply).

In the afternoon, continue our trip to Solemn Sacred Way, a 7-km long passage leading to the Imperial Tombs of 13 Emperors of Ming Dynasty. It was considered to be the road leading to heaven. Take a walk through the largest archway in China and you will see stone memorial arch, Great Red Gate, a stele pavilion, stone statues and the Dragon and Phoenix Gate. Afterwards, drive back to Beijing city and relive the excitement of the 2008 Olympic Games with a photo stop at the magnificent Bird Nest Stadium and the Water Cube.

For dinner, the flavorful dishes of Peking Roast Duck or Hot Pot, Mongolian Style will be arranged for you.

Later, continue on to Beijing Zoo, erected during the Qing dynasty, and observe China’s most treasured national icon - the panda. After lunch, your tour guide will escort you to catch your flight (or train) to next destination. Our service ends.
