Your private exploration today begins with a visit to the Tiananmen Square
, the heart of Beijing where many constructions of historical and monumental significance stand. Strolling to its north end, you will reach the world's largest and best-preserved imperial palace complex, the Forbidden City
, where 24 emperors had lived with their families.
In the afternoon, we will first
drive to the Temple of Heaven
, where the ancient emperors worshiped the Heaven to pray for grain
harvests and rainfall. It is the existing largest and highest ranking complex of the sacred places in China.
Afterwards, your 5 days Beijing tour package continues to the Hutongs
, which are the typical lanes or narrow streets between rows of courtyard houses. Different from the Forbidden City, Hutongs represent and show the lives of the ordinary people in Beijing. An interesting rickshaw ride here will add much joy to your travel.
