Meet your driver at your hotel lobby in Beijing city center and be driven to the restaurant to enjoy a Peking Roast Duck dinner, the most famous and beloved recipe of the traditional Northern Chinese cuisine.

Story-lines in Peking Opera reference many aspects of Chinese culture, including historical tales, myths and legends and popular romances. An opera performance consists of beautiful painted sets, exquisite costumes, graceful gestures, martial arts and, of course, opera singing.
