Day 1Forbidden City, Beihai Park and Shichahai Hutong Tour

8:30 Your private guide and driver will pick you up at the hotel lobby and drive to Tian'anmen Square (about 30 mins).

9:00-12:00 Access to the Tian'anmen Square and Forbidden City. Forbidden City was where emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties handled court business and resided. A total of 24 emperors ruled the country from here for 600 years (about 3 hours).

12:30-15:00 Visit the Shichahai Hutong area. Shichahai has long been regarded as the most beautiful place in old Beijing. With the beautiful scenery of the lake, numerous temples, former residences of many celebrities, gardens of royal families, and lakeside bars, this area has become the best part of Hutong in Beijing and a historical and cultural feature spot. Sitting on a Rickshaw ride (optional, at your own cost) is a fun and relaxing way to tour around those zigzagging and inter-crossing old Hutong, courtyard houses, and local shops.  Wandering around in the old Skewed Tobacco Pouch Street inside Hutong,  there are nearly one hundred cultural shops in styles distinct from each other. These shops specialize in selling various unique articles and local snacks ( about 2.5 hours).

Climb to Drum Tower /or Bell Tower to take panorama pictures of Beijing's inner city (optional, at your own cost).

15:45-17:00 Visit the Beihai Park. Beihai Park was initially built by the emperors of the Jin Dynasty 1000 years ago, according to the popular Chinese legend of a fairy hill on the sea. Continuously improved by dynasties Jin(1115-1234), Yuan(1271-1368), Ming(1368-1644) and Qing(1644-1911). White pagoda, double-sided Nine-Dragon Screen, Round City, and Jade Islet, famous as Peng-Lai fairyland on the sea are all well-known in Beijing (about 1.5 hours).

17:30 Back to the hotel and ended a wonderful day.
