The Tiananmen Square is located at the central axis of Beijing City. You can appreciate outstanding buildings during the 30-40 minutes' visit there. In the center of the square stand the Monument to People's Heroes with reliefs telling vital events during the modern China history (1840 - 1949), and the Chairman Mao Memorial Hall where the remains of this great leader is preserved. The Tiananmen Tower is at its northern end and it used to be the front door of the imperial city during the Ming and Qing dynasties. You can also find Zhengyang Gate and Qianmen Arrow Tower, both with a history of around 600 years, in the south of the square.

The Forbidden City is the largest and the best-preserved wooden palace complex in the world. 24 emperors during the Ming and Qing dynasties had lived there. The palace consists of the Outer Court and the Inner Court. The Outer Court was for emperors to handle national affairs while the Inner Court served as the living place for the imperial family. The past time has left the palace with over 70 imposing palaces and more than 9,000 rooms, as well as millions of rare historical items including paintings, calligraphy works, ceramics, bronze wares, and clocks.

    The tour guide provided us with good service, and she could look after every person in our small group. Our itinerary arrangement was very reasonable though the time was limited. We visited Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Badaling Great Wall in one day! We also enjoyed the delicious local food after the tour. The Beijing day trip was very satisfying!
