Day 1:  Beijing Tour (Lunch)
You will be picked up in the morning from your hotel by your guide and driver to visit Tian’anmen Square – the largest square in the world, and Forbidden City, which served as the home of emperors and their households as well as the ceremonial and political center of Chinese government for almost 500 years.

Afterwards, your guide will take you to walk the Hutong - The narrow streets formed by traditional courtyard residences. At here you will visit a local family, learn how to make dumplings and enjoy a delicious lunch.

In the afternoon,  you will visit the beautiful Summer Palace. In December 1998, UNESCO included the Summer Palace on its World Heritage List. It declared the Summer Palace "a masterpiece of Chinese landscape garden design. The natural landscape of hills and open water is combined with artificial features such as pavilions, halls, palaces, temples and bridges to form a harmonious ensemble of outstanding aesthetic value." 


On your way back to downtown, stop at the Olympic Green to photograph the iconic "Bird's Nest" - the Beijing National Stadium - host to many spectacular events of the 2008 Summer Olympics.

Your tour will end up by dropping off at your hotel.

Day 2: Beijing Tour (Lunch)

This morning you will visit Temple of Heaven, which is the place that the emperors of Ming & Qing Dynasties went twice a year to worship the God of Heaven and pray for good harvest.  During the day, the park, where the Temple of Heaven located, is a popular place for Beijingers to come and exercise – and you will see all forms and styles of exercise from ballroom dancing, marching, kite flying, Chi Gong through to walking backwards (yes, frequent collisions occur). You will have chance to experience "tea ceremony" before you leave Temple of Heaven. 

Then head north to visit the Great Wall of China - supposedly the only man-made object that can be seen from the moon. It will take around 1.5 hours to get there. Upon arrival, you will firstly have lunch at the local restaurant.

After lunch, you will visit the Great Wall at Mutianyu section, which is more original, less crowded and famous for the breath-taking scenery. US President Bill Clinton came here and declared it to be “very beautiful, very grand, more beautiful and grander than I imagined”. You will spend enough time hiking on the Wall. If you prefer an easier tour, you could choose to take the cable car up and maybe try the exciting toboggan down at your own expense. 

You will end up this two day trip by dropping off at your centrally located Beijing hotel.
