Pick you up from your hotel, and then visit Tian'anmen Square, which is located in the center of the city. It was once the largest city square in the world. Its name literally means “Gate of Heavenly Peace”. The square witnessed the foundation of the People’s Republic of China and several important events in Chinese history.
After that, we will drive you to Yonghegong Lama Temple, which was a residence for Emperors Yongzheng and Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty. It was built in the 33rd year of Kangxi’s reign (1694) and was changed into a Emperor’s palace in the 3rd year of Yongzheng’s reign (1725). In the 9th year of Qianlong’s reign (1744), it became a temple of the Lama Buddhist sect.

We were not able to visit the Lama Temple as it was an extremely busy day with a many hour wait to get in. Instead we went to Conucius Temple which was very nice, Beijing Zoo to visit pandas and as an added bonus took the tour of the Hutongs via Rickshaw. The tour was wonderful and the tour guide Kathy outsta more..
