Tiananmen Square

Tiananmen Square is the world's largest public square. On arrival, enjoy a short walk around this massive public space, with its famous buildings. View the grandiose Great Hall of the People and glimpse other landmarks like the National Museum of China and Mausoleum of Mao Zedong, the lasting resting place of Chairman Mao.

Forbidden City

Forbidden City is the world's biggest historical palatial complex and home to 14 Ming and 10 Qin emperors from 1406 on. Explore the pavilions, museums, and courtyards, and admire the classical architecture as you hear about the emperors who lived here. Guarded by its moat and 29-foot (9-meter) high walls, the complex was off-limits to Beijing's citizens, hence its name of the Forbidden City. If you still have time after Forbidden City visiting, you could take Hutong rickshaw tour for one hour(at your own cost).

Flexible Tour Option and transfer back

The duration of this tour is 8 hours (from pick-up point and drop-off point). If you still have time after visiting the Tian'anmen Square and Forbidden City, you can choose one of other attractions in Beijing city: Temple of Heaven, Hutong or Summer Palace. At last, you will be dropped off at Beijing airport in time for your onward flight.
