Guided Luxury Tour of Beijing from Forbidden City to Temple of Heaven
Called one of the seven wonders of the modern world, The Great Wall of China stretches more than 5,000 miles across northern China—longer than the length of the continental United States—snaking through lush forests and up snow-capped mountains. South in Beijing, the colossal Forbidden City palace represents the might of ancient China, whereas the 91,000-capacity Beijing National Stadium is a modern marvel. These sights make up just a few parts of Rewards Travel China's seven-day sightseeing tour of Beijing, which reveals the massive city and its superlative-worthy attractions.
Some deal options include round-trip airfare from Los Angles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), Seattle (SEA), or Vancouver (YVR) airports. Airport taxes and fuel surcharge ($460–$490, depending on the airline) are not included. Chinese visa fees ($140) are not included. Departures may be made from other cities for an additional fee.
Day 1–3: After visitors arrive at the airport, English-speaking guides escort visitors to their hotels. The next day, the tour begins at the Forbidden City, an imperial palace complex that served as home to 24 emperors, spanning more than 500 years of China’s history. South of Tiananmen Gate lies Tiananmen Square, one of the largest open city spaces in the world.
Days 4–5: The Beijing National Stadium (AKA the "Bird's Nest"), which hosted the 2008 Summer Olympics’ opening ceremony, impresses with its sprawling beams made entirely of twigs and feathers. Built in the 15th century during the Ming Dynasty, the Temple of Heaven is where locals practice morning Taiji and Gongfu. A stop at the Great Wall of China, endlessly stretching into the horizon, is a highlight of the trip, as is a special kung fu show and a jaunt to a local jade market.
Day 6–7: During free time, guests can pick up souvenirs, taste the lamb kebabs, stuffed buns, and other steaming street food, or check out any sights missed along the way.
