Beijing Traveling Line 1 #

Full Day City Tour Tian'anmen Square, Forbidden City and Hutong

Visit to the Tian'an Men Square

Located in the center of Beijing City is Tian'anmen Square, where you can visit Tian'anmen Tower, Monument to the People's Heroes, Great Hall of the People, Mao Zedong Memorial Hall and see the national flag raising ceremony.

Forbidden City

Situated at the heart of Beijing, the Forbidden City is approached through Tiananmen Gate. It is a location endowed with cosmic significance by ancient China's astronomers. The Forbidden City was built from 1406 to 1420 by the third Ming emperor Yongle who, upon usurping the throne, determined to move his capital north from Nanjing to Beijing. In 1911 the Qing dynasty fell to the republican revolutionaries. The last emperor, Puyi, continued to live in the palace after his abdication until he was expelled in 1924. Twenty-four emperors lived and ruled from this palace during this 500-year span.

Visit to the Hutong Area

A Hutong is a unique form of community that exists only in China. The Hutong, built during the Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasties, is the narrow network of lanes created by closely built quadrangular homes. The houses and courtyards, hidden away and boxed, are closed off with wooden gates that often have carved characters intended to bring good fortune to the house owner.

Full Day Tour: Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace

Visit to the Temple of Heaven

The Temple of Heaven Park is located in the Chongwen District, Beijing. Originally, this was the place where emperors of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) and Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911) held the Heaven Worship Ceremony. It is China's largest and most representative existing masterpiece among China’s ancient sacrificial buildings. First built in 1420, the 18th year of the reign of Emperor Yongle of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644), it was enlarged and rebuilt during the reigns of the Ming emperor Jiajing and the Qing emperor Qianlong. In 1988, the Temple of Heaven was opened to the public as a park, showing ancient philosophy, history and religion. Its grand architectural style and profound cultural connotation give an insight into the practices of the ancient eastern civilization.  

Summer Palace

Situated in the Haidian District northwest of Beijing, Summer Palace is 15 kilometers from central Beijing. Being the largest and most well-preserved royal park in China, it greatly influences Chinese horticulture and landscape with its famous natural views and cultural interests, which also has long been recognized as “The Museum of Royal Gardens”. The construction started in 1750 as a luxurious royal garden for royal families to rest and entertain. It later became the main residence of royal members in the end of the Qing Dynasty.
