  • Day 2: Beijing

    On a full day tour, walk through Beijing’s heart, Tiananmen Square. Built on Mao Zedong’s orders it is said to be the world’s largest public square, holding over one million people during military parades and again in 1976 following Mao’s death.From here you pass through the impressive Gate of Heavenly Peace under the famous portrait of Mao to visit the Forbidden City. This is China’s largest and best-preserved cluster of ancient buildings, offering a fascinating insight into the sophistication of ancient China and the extraordinary power of the emperors. Next explore the ancient backstreets of Beijing’s hutongs by rickshaw. These traditional alleyways of communal courtyard living are fast disappearing from Beijing’s landscape due to the city’s rush towards modernity and soaring property values. Catch close-up glimpses of local life, explore a produce market, enjoy a simple lunch inside a local family home, and absorb the atmosphere of another era.
