Hit iconic Beijing landmarks, partake in local activities, ride the subway, and gain insight into life as a local on this Beijing city tour!
Meet your local guide at the east gate of the Temple of Heaven metro station. Join in some of the activities, soaking up the park’s relaxed atmosphere. Visit the temple and ritual sites inside, where emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties would offer sacrifices to heaven and pray for good harvests. From there, you'll jump on Beijing's subway to travel to the very heart of the city for a visit to one of Beijing's icons: Tiananmen Square. You'll pass through the Gate of Heavenly Peace to enter the Forbidden City. Off-limits to most of the world for 500 years, this ‘city’ houses the best-preserved cluster of ancient buildings in China and is a must-see spot in Beijing. After that, you'll grab a simple lunch at a local restaurant to devour tasty authentic Chinese food. To gain a new perspective of the immensity of the Forbidden City, climb on top of the pagoda in Jingshan Park! High on a hill overlooking the city, this is the best place to take in stunning views. The tour will end in Jingshan Park, where you are free to spend more time exploring or head back into the heart of Beijing to take in more of the city’s sights.
