Today we have a full day in Beijing to explore some of the most majestic and historically significant sites of this immense city. We start with Tienanmen Square and the “Forbidden City” so called as it was off limits to the general public for over 500 years. Its ancient buildings served as the imperial palace for two dynasties, the Ming and Qing. After lunch we take a rickshaws ride through the old city, inspecting courtyards, and the district Bell Tower, and Hou Hai. Back at the hotel we freshen up ready to try some local cuisine dinner. What a day!
