After that, your memorable China tour will start with a visit to the grand Tiananmen Square, the largest city square in the world. Just walk across the road to enter the splendid Forbidden City, the most complete Imperial Palace complex in existence, where the Emperors of Ming and Qing Dynasties governed the country for over 500 years. After an a la carte lunch at a popular local restaurant, you will continue the city tour to another highlight in Beijing, the Temple of Heaven.

Badaling Great Wall, Beijing

Today we will drive beyond Beijing to have a short hike on the Badaling section of the Great Wall, a symbol of the Chinese ancient genius, a must to see when you come to China. Drop by a jade factory. Lunch is not included today as all the restaurants here are tourist ones with low quality. We suggest you take some fast food for your lunch. Then we transfer to visit the Sacred Way in the afternoon. On the way back to downtown, you will have a chance to see the outside of the Bird’s Nest.
