After breakfast, depart to Tiananmen Square, the world's largest city square. We will have a brief stop here and photograph some national iconic structures including Monument to the People’s heroes, Great Hall of the People, Chairman Mao Memorial Hall, etc. Many visitors come very early for the spectacular flag-raising ceremony (not included in). To the north of the square is the South Gate of the Forbidden City where we will spend the next 2.5-3 hours. Forbidden City is 600 years old in 2020. It has the largest and best-preserved collections of ancient architectures with more than 980 rooms in the palace.
We have a long walk this morning. Refresh ourselves and enjoy lunch. In the afternoon, we will wander through the Hutongs, a type of traditional neighborhood, to touch the real life of common people. For the interests of kids, we will learn a traditional art – Chinese Yoyo.
“Not reach the Great Wall not a true man” is a common Chinese saying. The Great Wall visit is part of the highlights in Beijing. We meet at your hotel at 8:30am, and head northeast to Mutianyu Great Wall. This section of the wall ranks number one among all sections on TripAdvisor list with beautiful-restored architectures but less tourists. Round trip cable car is included to save energy and enjoy a fun walk on the top. On the way back, we can stop at 798 Art District if kids are still energetic.
We start our city trip from Summer Palace, which is the best-preserved imperial garden in the world and the largest of its kind in existence of China. The garden is like an art gallery with over 3000 man-made pavilions, palaces, temples, bridges and corridors. It is too much to see in the two hours.
Have lunch and take a break at restaurant. We will spend the afternoon hours in Beijing Zoo, the largest of its kind in China and see the cute pandas in the park. Continue to the Olympic Green which was constructed for the 2008 Olympic Games and turned into a park after the Game. The notable architectures - Water Cube and Bird Nest situate in the park.
