◆ Spend 2 hours in the Forbidden City, a splendid, unparalleled palace complex of 980 buildings
◆ See the sites where emperors prayed for peace and good harvests
◆ Visit China's largest garden amid the splendor of the Summer Palace
OverviewVisit three must-see sites from China's imperial past in one day, as well as the modern icon of Tiananmen Square. Be dazzled by the bygone splendor of the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace.
Any one of the three imperial stops on this tour could leave you in awe. Together they form an incomparable journey into a past you can hardly imagine, while Tiananmen Square testifies to Mao's influence in creating the China of today.
The first stop on the tour is Tiananmen, with its wealth of monuments to the Communist era. From there you proceed to the Forbidden City, a huge complex of palaces and temples built to house the imperial family, constructed 600 years ago. According to UNESCO, it is the largest collection of preserved ancient wooden structures in the world.
Your next destination is the Temple of Heaven, where emperors of the last 2 dynasties prayed for peace and good harvests. On the way here you will have an introduction to Chinese traditional medicine.
After a Western and Chinese buffet lunch, enjoy a short visit to a pearl market and then ride to the Summer Palace, which has the largest and most beautiful Chinese imperial garden. It is considered a museum of gardens in China.
