Full description
Enjoy a full-day exploring the top attractions of the historic city of Beijing. Travel by coach, with a hotel pick-up between 6:30 AM and 7:00 AM, and head for the world-famous Tian'anmen Square.

Also known as the “Gate of Heavenly Peace,” the imposing square is the gateway to the historic Forbidden City. As the world’s largest city square, Tian'anmen Square is of great cultural significance, and has been the site of several key events in Chinese history.

Move on to the magnificent Forbidden City. The old imperial palace is the largest and most complete collection of traditional architecture and court treasures from all the Chinese dynasties. You will have approximately 2 hours to wander around the Forbidden City, exploring the central axis from south to north.

After visiting the Forbidden City, you have the opportunity to shop at a Jade Carving Factory for 45 minutes. Jade carving is very famous special local product, demonstrating not only excellent carving skills, but also a mixture of many Chinese traditional cultures.

You then drive to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall, the longest and best fully-restored part of the Great Wall. With less crowds and more watchtowers, enjoy the Wall at your own pace. You can also take a cable car up and down the mountain at your own expense.

On the way back you will visit a traditional Chinese pharmacy, where you will learn a little about traditional Chinese medicine and enjoy a free foot massage. Afterwards, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Beijing around 6:00 PM.
