In the morning, your private guide will pick you up at the hotel at appointed time, and then accompany you to visit the famous Tiananmen Square
which lies at the central axis of the city. Then you will be guided to walk through the Tiananmen Tower to reach the Forbidden City
. With the explanation of our guide, you can get to know the imperial life during the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368 - 1911) while admiring crimson halls inside the palace.
Lunch is on your own arrangement, but our guide is glad to offer you some suggestions. Then, we will continue the Beijing itinerary 4 days to the Temple of Heaven
, which was used to hold national sacrificial rituals in the Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911). You will be sent back to the hotel when today's tour is over. Please have a good rest for the next day's Great Wall hiking tour.
