Day01 Enter Beijing
Your flight will land in the Capital Airport today and our guide will wait for you at the exit of the airport holding a logo of our company and your name on it. After you claim your luggage, please go to the exit directly where you can identify the guide easily. Then a private transfer will drive you to check in at the hotel. Our capital city may be a new experience for you, so your guide will give you some brief information about this city on the way. If there is still some time left on the day, you may have a good rest to recover from the jetlag or wander around by yourself. The guide will discuss the next day's meeting time with you before leaving.
Our clients visiting Forbidden City
The private sightseeing starts in the morning after your breakfast at the hotel. The first stop is the city's landmark, Tiananmen Square
, which is located in the central area of our capital and surrounded by several important and grand buildings including the Great Hall and the Chairman Mao Memorial Hall. Having stirring flag raising and lowering ceremonies held here every day, the Tiananmen Square has always been a pride for all Chinese. And then you will walk for about 5 minutes to enter the Forbidden City
, it used to be royal palace of Ming and Qing Dynasties, and now it is one of the most important and must-see sites for all visitors. The incomparable ancient buildings complex witnessed the splendor and decay of two dynasties and leave Chinese great repercussions far beyond imagination. Your guide will give you detailed explanation and guidance during this vacation. In the afternoon, visit the Temple of Heaven
, which is another important site in ancient time for emperors and royal family to worship the gods.
Our clients at Badaling Great Wall
The Great Wall
will tell you the great fortifications of Chinese people ever made to protect the homeland in ancient times. Today we will show you one of the most famous and complete part of the Great Wall, Badaling Section. In the afternoon, we will drive you to the Sacred Way
and Ming Tomb
to show you the Chinese ancient culture and royal tradition from various aspects. On the way back to downtown, the driver will stop at a distance for you to visit the outside of the Bird's Nest
, which was used for National Stadium in the 2008 Olympic.
Day04 Beijing - Xi’an
Local people dancing in the City Wall Park, Xi’an
Today we will take you to the Beijing Zoo
and the Summer Palace
in the morning. Then visit the Lama Temple
and have a Hutong tour
. The Hutong experience will show you the courtyard houses and the living style of the local residence. Since you will take an overnight soft sleeper train to Xian tonight. You may ask your guide to take you to a super market or a cake store to buy some food for dinner and the breakfast for the next day. The train has food sold to passengers but with low quality and taste. If you failed to prepare food in advance, then you can buy something from the conductors when they pass your carriage with their small dining car. (Tips: The trains in China are different from those in western countries. The soft sleeper carriages are divided by two lower and two upper berths with doors, but with very limited space. You may ask your guide to take you to the railway station a little bit earlier and ask the red hat for help with your luggage and then you can get on the train earlier. Only in this way can you get on the train without any hurry and can place your luggage at a convenient place. As also, the compulsory information about the train baggage allowance
will give you a great help when you board the train.)
Day06 Exit Xi’an
Our travel consultant Sophie with her clients
You private journey will come to an end today and you may need to check out from the hotel before the sightseeing starts. The first stop is Provincial History Museum
. Bearing large range of precious collections, this museum is complimented as the treasure house of China, so we arrange one and a half hour visit to present and illustrate the invaluable cultural legacy of almost 10 thousand years to you. A local family
