Then extend your journey to the Temple of Heaven, which is the largest existing imperial altar in China. As well as enjoying the splendid architecture, you will also find local residents singing, dancing and reading in the park, which will offer you an opportunity to observe the ordinary people's life here. In the evening, a fabulous Chinese Kung Fu Performance will be arranged for you to round off the whole day's visit.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, A la carte lunch

Day 3  Beijing

We believe that you have probably heard much about the Badaling Great Wall. Today you will have a chance to witness, in person, this extraordinary project in human history afer a short visit to a jade factory. Standing on the wall and appreciating its snaking path along the mountain ridges will certainly bring you unique feelings.

We suggest you have a large breakfast, because you will have a whole day visit and the restaurants in the mountain area are not up to TCG's standard. You may have some fast food for lunch around the site.

After that, continue your trip to visit the Sacred Way. The vividly decorated stone statues standing along both sides of the Sacred Way are mainly for decorative purposes, symbolizing the power of emperors before their death. On the way back to the city, we will pass the Bird's Nest Stadium and you will have a short stop nearby to take some photos.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast

Day 4  Beijing - Xian

After checking out of the hotel, our guide will pick you up and take you to visit the world famous Summer Palace and then a pearl store. Built in 1750, it encompasses the elite of the Chinese traditional art of garden building. Artfully making use of the surrounding mountains and lakes, the Summer Palace not only represents a resplendent imperial garden, but also reflects the exquisite beauty of nature.

Then, we will take you to an upscale local restaurant having fantastic food on offer with a la carte menu (valued at CNY150.00 per person and included in our price).

Afterwards, you will take a Hutong tour. Hutong is an alleyway, which has a history as long as Beijing city.

Day 5  Xian

The morning schedule will be your visit to the Terracotta Army, which is famous for its incredible art skill and its tremendous scale, and then a pottery-making factory. In 1974, the army of terracotta warriors was discovered by local villagers when they were drilling a well. After a series of excavations by archeologists, this amazing hidden treasure was finally revealed to the world. This discovery not only made Chinese people proud of their forefathers, but amazed the whole world.

To avoid the low-quality tourist food near the site, we take you to visit a local Chinese family home, where you will have lunch (valued at CNY120.00 per person and included in our price) cooked by the host.

After lunch, you are going to visit the Small Wild Goose Pagoda, an ancient Buddhist tower, was built more than 1,300 years ago and now it still stands there elegantly.

Day 6  Xian - Zhangjiajie

You will spend the whole morning visiting the City Wall and the Provincial History Museum. The City Wall is the fortification of Xian city, built in the Ming Dynasty, a real ancient ruin. Having fun on the City Wall is very easy. Just hire a bike, ride around the old city wall and laugh all the way and return the bike until you get exhausted.

An a la carte lunch (valued at CNY120.00 per person and included in our price) will be served at a very famous local restaurant.

After winding around several alleys, we will lead you to the Great Mosque. It has a beautiful architecture with a very Chinese appearance, unlike other mosques.
