This tour is the perfect option to visit several of the most attractive tourist sites in Beijing. It includes the Beijing Zoo to see the beloved giant pandas, the Olympic area to see the Olympic Stadium from the 2008 Beijing Games, the large Lama Temple, the traditional Beijing hutong alleys and the amazing views of the Forbidden City from Jingshang Park.
The first stop of the tour is the Beijing Zoo where you can see the lovely Giant Pandas. The Panda Zoo visit will take around 40 minutes, so will have plenty of times to make nice pictures.
The next stop is the Olympic Stadium, also know as Bird’s nest. During 45 minutes you can walk around and check also the Water Cube, where the water sports took place during the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. If you are interested in the inner structure of the stadiums, the tour guide will assist you in buying the tickets on your own.
Following the Olympic area, you will visit the Lama Temple, a mysterious Tibet style Buddhism temple. Then you will enjoy a traditional Chinese cuisine lunch with locals in a typical Beijing resident's house. Once you finish your meal, you will ride the old Beijing lanes, also called hutongs, by rickshaws. A very pleasant experience to discover the ancient Beijing.
Then you will drive to the Jingshan park, a former imperial garden in the north of the Forbidden City. From this hill you can have a wonderful view of Beijing. Finally, you will visit a silk shop where you can make some shopping for your relatives back home. Lastly, you will be transferred to your hotel.
