Tour Details

Introduce yourself to an eclectic sample of Beijing and tour the Chinese city and some of its most sacred sites. Visit the Ancestral Altar, the Lama Temple, and the Panda Garden on this fun and educational tour.

Your day will begin at your hotel, where you will be picked up by an air-conditioned coach service. You will first head to the Lama Temple to tour the building known formally as Yonghe Temple. This Tibetan monastery is one of the most important of its kind in the world, and its architecture draws mixed influences from Han Chinese and Tibetan styles. This monastery, built during the Qing Dynasty, is also significant in that it survived the Cultural Revolution and still houses a beautiful collection of art. After viewing the living quarters of the resident Tibetan monks, you will get a chance to see some iconic Chinese pandas. Tour the Chinese panda zoo and get up close and personal with these endangered creatures. You can see the pandas in a near-natural environment, and you will wonder at their adorable nature.

Your group will then stop for a provided Chinese-style, and you can rest and reenergize. After lunch, you will continue your Beijing tour at the Ancestral Altar to tour a building constructed in 1420 during the Ming Dynasty. The Ancestral Altar was built in commemoration of Yandi, a man considered an ancestor of China and the ancestral farmer. Yandi used his own body to experiment on the effects of medicine and herbs, trying everything himself before treating the sick. Because of this and his dedication to farming, an altar was built out of respect and admiration for him. The altar was fully completed in 1755, and people continue to come to pray and give thanks for good harvests. Inside the altar, you will also have a chance to hear a lecture on Chinese architecture.

At the end of the day, you will be dropped off at your hotel by air-conditioned coach service. This tour gives you a fantastic glimpse into the variety of Beijing's important sites and is a wonderful sampler of the beauty Beijing has to offer.
