Itinerary

Meet your guide at the lobby of your hotel in Beijing city centre to start this tour.


First he or she we will bring you to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City to experience some of the most amazing historical sites of one of the greatest empires in the world. These sites will help you understand just how impressive China’s history is, and you’ll be able to gain a deeper understanding of it with our tour guide’s explanation. In imperial China, only the emperor, deemed the ‘son of heaven,’ was allowed to pass through the central meridian gate into the palace. However, today, you can also experience the majestic palace fit for emperors, first-hand. 


Afterward, learn about the history and manufacture of Chinese silk with a visit to one of Beijing’s principal silk factories. Witness the very process from the harvesting of silk using worms to the weaving of delicate finished silk products.


Our guide will then lead you through the vibrant Hongqiao Pearl Market. Popular among tourists and locals alike, the market offers just about everything you can think of electronics, clothes, shoes, jewelry, art and crafts, and of course, pearls! Providing pearls to foreign embassies and other high-profile shoppers such as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (no less than three times), the pearls on offer at this market are of exceptional range and quality.

In the evening, you will see a Chinese Acrobatics Show at Chaoyang Theatre. Enjoy a breathtaking night of gravity-defying contortionism, juggling, unicycling, chair-stacking and plate-spinning acts that both children and adults will love.

A tour of Beijing could not be complete without one of China’s finest cuisines. Prepared since the imperial era, Peking Duck is hailed as one of China’s most popular and delicious specialties. Prized for its crispy skin and tender meat, and served and eaten in a special way, it’s a must-have experience for any visitor in Beijing. Our guide will be sure to show you the traditional way of eating Peking Duck!


Transfer back to your hotel with the rest of the day on your own arrangement.
