Know More about this tour

This Beijing tour starts from the famous Lama temple, once the residence of a royal court. This vibrantly ornamented temple is one of the largest and most important Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in the world.

Built in 1694 AD, Lama temple houses tranquil gardens, superb sculptures and a veritable treasury of Buddhist art. Then you head to see the most important living treasure in Chin - the giant Panda in Beijing Zoo. Seizing this rare opportunity to see the endangered treasure is a great pleasure.

After a delicious Chinese lunch you will travel to an altar built in 1420 AD to memorialize the divine farmer Shennong, an emperor from thousands of years ago who taught his people the art of agriculture. Inside is a museum documenting the rise of Chinese architecture and agriculture in ancient times.

    If museums are your thing I would recommend this tour. I found it a bit too slow a pace for myself and when it came time to see the Panda's, the time spent there seemed short. The tour guide was knowledgeable although a bit quiet at times.
