This morning we will first head for the solemn Tiananmen Square
, commonly known as the symbol of China. Passing through Tiananmen Tower, we will arrive at the neighboring Forbidden City
, where in the past the imperial family lived for more than 500 years. The stunning palaces are well preserved, with crimson columns and eaves decorated with colored glaze. Besides the magnificent architecture, you will surely be amazed at the numerous treasures stored in this museum.
Then an a la carte lunch (valued at CNY150.00 per person and included in our price) will be served at a very nice restaurant where you can taste authentic Chinese food.
The next stop is the Temple of Heaven
, which was used by the ancient emperors to worship the heaven and wish for a good harvest in feudal times. After that, we will escort you back to the hotel.
Meals: Western buffet breakfast, A la carte lunch
