The last scenic spot today is the Temple of Heaven, the largest architectural complex for emperors to worship the heaven and pray a harvest year in ancient time. The whole site is divided into inner part and outer part. And the two main sacrificial buildings, the Circular Mound Altar and the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest, are in the inner part. After the tour, you will be escorted back to your hotel.
Day 2 Beijing

After picking you up at the hotel, we will head to the imperial garden in the Qing Dynasty, Summer Palace. It is a large landscape garden absorbing the design techniques of the gardens in southern China. It has more than 3,000 ancient architectures, including the palaces, Buddhist halls, pavilions, corridors, etc. Emperors Guangxu and Empress Dowager Cixi used to administer the affairs of the country and receive the foreign guests here.

For lunch, your guide will recommend you the suitable dishes in accordance with your taste, and the cost will be your own.
