Today, you will walk on the Great Wall to appreciate 2000 years of historical significance and admire the panoramic views. The Great Wall is China's most iconic attraction, which stretches over 4000 miles from the Shanhaiguan Pass on the east coast to the Gobi Desert in the west. You will also visit the underground Ming Tombs and the Sacred Way
Visit one of the most important archaological discoveries of the 20th century - the Terracotta Warriors. The figures were created 2000 years ago to accompany Qin Shihuang into the afterlife. After lunch at a local farmer's house, visit a local Chinese herbal market. You will also walk along the Ancient City Wall and stroll through the lively Muslim Quarter, past the Great Mosque to explore the Islamic food markets.
After your hotel pickup, this tour starts at Tian'anmen Square with its plentitude of monuments testifying to the communist, Mao's influence on China's modern history. From there you will proceed to the Forbidden City, the largest and best-preserved ancient imperial palaces with over 500 years of history. Visit the Forbidden City along the central axis from south to north for 2 hours. On the way to Temple of Heaven, you will have a chance to visit a centre for Chinese traditional medicine culture. After having a short rest, we'll visit the Temple of Heaven - the largest ancient imperial worship architecture group in the world where the ancient Emperors prayed for peace and harvest. The visit to the Temple of Heaven will take about 1 hour. After a Western and Chinese buffet lunch (40minutes) in Bangfuchun Restaurant, enjoy a short visit to a pearl free market - not to be missed. We will then drive (30minutes) to the Summer Palace, the largest and most beautiful Chinese imperial garden. The visit takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes before you will be transferred back to your hotel.
This exotic gem explores some of the most intriguing destinations across the world. She boasts great-tasting food and offers an appetising popular Italian restraint with freshly prepared pasta. Professional sommeliers help pair exquisite wine with you dinner to enhance your experience. Visit her hand tossed pizzeria next to the poolside as well as watching a Movie Under the Stars.
