Suggested Itinerary

Day 1Arrive in Beijing

A friendly face will be waiting at the airport; your guide will take you to your hotel in the comfort of a private car.

Day 2 Great Wall at Mutianyu, Temple of Heaven

The Mutianyu Great Wall enjoys the benefit of a cable car, but yet has uninterrupted views of stunning mountains and valleys combined with the most watchtowers.

The Temple of Heaven is a less known but magnificent complex of circular structures, built for sacrifices for good harvest in Ming dynasty, in reality it’s not really a ‘temple’ and rated as a top 10 attraction in Beijing for good reason, it’s fascinating!

Day 3Forbidden City, Hutong Tour

The Forbidden City is an awe-inspiring maze of vast courtyards and halls leading to the emperors’ private quarters. Intriguing exhibitions of the private treasures of the imperial family add interest to the visit. Tiananmen Square has been the center stage of important events for centuries and is an embodiment of the national pride.

China Highlights’ Hutong Tour takes you to more human sized surroundings; the narrow alleyways connecting the small courtyard houses are quite a contrast to the imposing palace buildings. A rickshaw ride and a visit to a local family make the experience personal.
