The Imperial Journey: Forbidden City (via Tiananmen Square), Temple of Heaven & Summer Palace

An imperial journey to Three Imperial Landmarks in Beijing. All of them are UNESCO World Heritage sites!"

We will visit the three imperial landmarks: Forbidden City (around 2 hours), Temple of Heaven (around 1 hour) and Summer Palace (around 1.5 hours).

The Forbidden City was the imperial palace of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. It covers over 180 acres with some 9999 rooms (9 is the lucky number) and for the ordinary people, it was as big as a city but their entry to this city was forbidden, hence, Forbidden City. The Temple of Heaven was the place where the Chinese Emperor, as the Son of Heaven, prayed on behalf of his countrymen for good harvest, prosperity and peace. Proceed to the Summer Palace, the imperial garden for the royal families.

What's more, we will go to the Forbidden City via the Tiananmen Square - the Square is the biggest square in China, and it is a recollection of many locals and overseas, with the image of Chairman Mao proclaiming the founding of the People's Republic of China on Tiananmen Square on 1 October 1949. You will also make a stop at a traditional Chinese medicine store to see how the Chinese keep good health the Chinese way, and a pearl workshop, a popular jewellery amongst the Chinese queens and princesses.
