Day 2 – Forbidden City and Temple of Heaven day tour (B+L)
First things first, you will have a full buffet breakfast, and then gather with the rest of the group and go to Tiananmen Square, which is also known as the world’s largest square. Close to the square is our second destination of this day, The Forbidden City. The Forbidden City used to be an imperial palace in the days of the Ming dynasty, and during that time it was forbidden for people to set foot there. After enjoying the first two sites of your day tour, it is time for having lunch in one of the best Chinese restaurants in Beijing. Next, we will visit the Temple of Heaven that is built so large and so tall to be closer to the heavens. The temple is located in the southeast of the city. To better acquaint your group with the history and culture of the Chinese people, we will end this day with a Chinese Kung Fu Show before heading back to the hotel.
Day 3 – The Great Wall along with some History and Culture (B+L)
At the start of this day we will have breakfast at the hotel and then visit one of the seven wonders of our world, The Great Wall of China. When we reach the Great Wall of China, you will only be able to see some sections of the wall because of its length. These sections are called Mutianyu and Badaling sections, which are famous and less crowded areas, suitable for visitors. After this visit, you will be taken to the Jade Factory where you can also have lunch and do some shopping before moving towards the Summer Palace. The palace is a large ensemble of several beautiful lakes and gardens, that are only parts of rich Chinese history and culture. By the end of the day we will take you to a Tea Ceremony, to get some rest and relax.

Day 5 – The Must-See of Xian (B+L+D)
Enjoy your full buffet breakfast at the hotel as you will be seeing a good number of places on this day.

One of the important crafts of their time is pottery which can be seen best at the Pottery-Making Factory. Our next stop is a fine local restaurant in which you can have some Chinese food of your choice for lunch. After lunch, it is the best time for visiting the Small Wild Goose Pagoda which is of special religious importance in Chinese history. Immediately after that, we will see the Xian Museum and learn more about the country. By night we have arranged for the famous Chines Dumplings for your dinner at one of their best restaurants. We will call it a day only after watching the famous Tang Dynasty Musing and Dance show and then return to the hotel.
Note: the show is closed in December, January, February, and March. Travelers will have the evening for themselves during these months.
Day 6 – Xian City Wall & Returning Home (B)
On our last day, we will only have a buffet breakfast together and go straight to The City Wall, where you can rent bikes and enjoy the visit as you see fit.

We recommend asking the hotel to call you a taxi for the airport unless you do not have a flight to catch. If you have other plans, feel free to ask your questions from the guide before the last day. If you have any other concerns, feel free to contact us. We wish you a safe trip home and hope to see you again in China.
