Meet your tour guide at your hotel in Beijing city centre and head for Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, the famous palace complex in the centre of the Chinese capital city. Learn more about Chinese culture and civilization as well as the history of one of the greatest empires in the world from your guide.

Your lunch will be an unforgettable experience tasting one of the most famous Chinese delicacies, Peking duck, a remarkable dish of marinated duck, its crisp skin a rich amber hue, which you can wrap in tiny pancakes topped with plum sauce, cucumber and spring onion. Your guide will tell you more about the origins of this fool and the way it is traditionally eaten by the locals.

We will take you to a silk factory next. See the entire process of making products out of silk and learn more about the different qualities of this fabric. In case you are interested in buying some souvenirs for your friends and families back home, you can do it here.

The final destination on today's itinerary is the Summer Palace, one of Beijing’s most popular landmarks and one of the best-preserved examples of Chinese landscape gardening. The site, which covers a total of 2.9 square kilometers, incorporates a huge lake and was for a long time a royal garden.

We will drive you back to your hotel after the trip comes to an end.

“I've seen a visiting Chinese acrobatic show before in my hometown but this one blew it out of the water. The show is definitely a must see when in Beijing, along with the Great Wall of course.”
