Tiananmen Square has the epic proportions fitting for a site where so many historical events have taken place, and the Forbidden City continues the impressive scale with golden roofed halls and courtyards designed to make people feel small as they proceed towards the emperor. The Hall of Clocks and Watches houses the collection of the last imperial family, set to chime together at certain times a day.
The Hutong Tour is quite a contrast to the splendor of the palace; a rickshaw ride takes you to visit a local family and hear about some of the symbolical meaning of the buildings.Meals:Lunch
Temple of Heaven is perhaps less well known of the imperial sights, but a fascinating insight into the religious life of the emperors. The surrounding park is often filled with locals engaged in their hobbies, such as taichi, as much as an attraction as the building.
The Great Wall in Mutianyu is a memorable experience: the rolling mountains crowned by this colossal testimony to human achievement.
