Pick up at 9 am to see Tiananmen Square, the largest city-center square in the world which witnessed some of the most dramatic chapters of Chinese history. It is considered to be the center of Beijing and China, where we can see the Front Gate, Chairman Mao's Mausoleum, Monument to the People's heroes, Great Hall of the People, Tiananmen Gate and National Museum of China.
Walk north to the Forbidden City, where the Ming and Qing Emperors resided for over 500 years. China’s imperial history unfolds as we explore the huge compound and the various rooms in the palace complex. Not only we will see the main buildings along the central axis, but also visit the Treasure Room and Qianlong Garden in the eastern part of the Forbidden City.
Climbing up the Jingshan Park to the north exit of the Forbidden City, which was used for warding off the evil wind from the north. On the top of Jingshan Park, we will have a panoramic view of the whole Forbidden City and downtown Beijing.
After lunch in a local non-tourist restaurant, continue to explore Hutong, the old and narrow city alley way which witnessed hundreds of year’s history of Beijing. We are going to take rickshaws and visit a local family to know something more about Beijing locals.
The Hutong guide will also take you up the Drum Tower, the north end of the City Central Axis, to see the Drum Beating ceremony and some other iconic buildings in Beijing.
After that, walk around Houhai before walking back our private car, which is the most popular pub street in Beijing.
