You will be picked up at your hotel lobby at around 09:00am and head for Tiananmen Square.
Tian'anmen Square is the largest city square in the centre of Beijing. It has great cultural significance as it was the site of several key events in Chinese history. As the world's largest city square and enduring symbol of China's national pride, it is surrounded by many imposing buildings including the Heavenly Gate (entry to the Forbidden City), Museums, government buildings and Chairman Mao's Mausoleum.
After visiting Tiananmen Square, continue to visit Zhongshan Park. Zhongshan Park is located west of Tiananmen Square, and it was named in the memory of Sun Yat-sen (Sun Zhongshan), who is considered by many as the "father of modern China". Zhongshan Park is a wonderful escape into a more natural garden, after visiting the Forbidden City and Tian’anmen Square. Spring is particularly stunning in Zhongshan Park. There are huge swathes of tulips planted throughout the park lining paths. Late April to early May is the best time to witness the tulips in full bloom. In addition to the tulips, there are also many other varieties, such as wisteria, bamboo, peonies, etc. It really has to be seen if you are visiting Beijing during the spring.
Then move on to Forbidden City. Forbidden City is the Imperial Palace, home to 24 Emperors between 1420 and 1911. Great squares, halls and gates contrast with the intricate networks of side halls, gardens, courtyards and quarters for those who lived in this 'city within a city'. The exhibitions, both permanent and temporary, are also absolutely fascinating.
Lunch is included. After the tour, you will be returned back to the hotel.
