Day 01 Beijing
Detailed Itinerary: At around 7:00am to 7:30am, our guide will pick you up from your hotel and transfer you to the largest public square in the world - Tiananmen Square as our first destination. Tiananmen Square is named after Tiananmen Gate which is the entrance to the Forbidden City. As the world’s third largest square, Tiananmen Square occupies 440,000 square meters and has witnessed some of the most significant events in China’s history.

Next head for the Taimiao (Imperial Ancestral Temple), a historic site just outside the Forbidden City. It held the most important festival occasions during both the Ming and Qing Dynasties. From here you will make your way to the Meridian Gate, front entrance to the Forbidden City and begin your 4-hour in-depth journey in the palace. The Forbidden City is the best preserved imperial palace in China and the largest ancient palatial structure in the world. The tour covers the West, East and Central Line where you visit the corner towers, museums, royal gardens, royal family residence and more. During this 4-hour visit (regular group only visit the Central Line with 2 hours), immerse yourself in the splendid architecture of the Forbidden City which represents the essence and culmination of traditional Chinese architectural accomplishment.

Relax over a Chinese lunch inside the Forbidden City, then proceed to the Temple of Heaven, which dates back to 1420. As you may figure out from its name, this religious complex mainly hosts annual ceremonies of prayer to Heaven for good harvest by the Emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties. With its grand size of architectures and profound cultural connotation, Temple of Heaven offer visitors a great chance to touch Chinese history.

Tour concludes at around 5:00pm and you will be dropped off at the closest subway station and return to your hotel by yourself.

Free morning pickup available for hotels located in the area of 3 Ring Road of Beijing. Otherwise please go to the KFC Restaurant in Qianmen East Street, nearby the Exit B of Qianmen Metro Station of Line 2.
