Tour Description:

Pick up from Beijing Capital Airport and first visit Tiananmen Square. Tiananmen Square is the heart and symbol of Beijing and is the biggest square of this kind in the world. The square can hold about one million people for public celebration or gatherings.

This was the site when in 1949, from a rostrum on Tian'anmen (the Gate of Heavenly Peace), Chairman Mao proclaimed the establishment of the People's Republic of China.

Tian'anmen Square Travel Tips

For security reason, Tian'anmen Square is a fenced square circled by low iron grids with main four entrances – east, west, south and north. The square is now open to the public till midnight, but all the tourists have to pass a security check before they enter the square. So check points have been set up at all the entrances leading to the square.

The 40-minute visit allows you to have a glimpse at the outside of Memorial Hall of Chairman Mao, the Monument to the People's Heroes, the magnificent Great Hall of the People, the National Museum of China, the ancient Zhengyang Gate and Arrow Tower as well as the Tian'anmen Tower which leads to the well-known Forbidden City. 
Then move on to the Imperial Palace, also known as the "Forbidden City" , the largest and best-preserved ancient imperial palaces group with 500 years history. The palace was built between 1406 and 1420, but was burnt down, rebuilt, sacked and renovated countless times, so most of the architecture you can see today dates from the 1700's and onward.

Proceed to the Temple of Heaven, the place where the Emperors prayed for peace and harvest. It is located in the southern part of Beijing, and had been one of the most holy places for the whole country for more than five centuries.It used as a complex of sacrificial buildings for the Ming and Qing emperors.

Temple of Heaven Travel Tips

The park is so huge. You are advised to wear your most comfortable shoes. It's a long walk! For summer time, be ready to bring an umbrella for sun protection, and bottles of water. Inside the huge park, there is a lovely temple complex, which is composed of three main parts – Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests, the Imperial Vault of Heaven and Circular Mound Altar sitting along an axis from south to north.

Don't miss the Cypress Grove. Old cypress trees are worth having a close look. Some of the cypresses are more than 600 years old. Dr Henry Kissinger, when he visited the temple, stated that while the USA could recreate the Temple of Heaven if it desired, it could not create the trees!

Summer Palace Travel Tips

Normally it takes 2 hours to walk around Summer Palace. Visiting Summer Palace needs a bit strong legs with a lot walking since Summer Palace is huge. 

Dress for the hot or cold weather. The summer in Beijing could be humid and close, sometimes extremely hot. Also winter could be very cold. So well prepared for the uncomfortable weather both in winter and summer. You are advised to wear your most comfortable shoes.

Summer Palace presents itself with different views for different seasons. Winter sees people skiing on the Kunming Lake; Spring time finds people breathe under fresh trees and flowers; Summer time often sees Summer Palace in a foggy day like a beautiful "water and mountain" Chinese scroll painting. Autumn is the best time walking around Summer Palace, clear and blue sky with comfortable weather. 

Summer Palace even at different times of a day allows you to see the different views under sunrise in the morning and sunset in the later afternoon.
