Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Tiananmen Square (Tiananmen Guangchang), Beijing

Tiananmen Square is at the very centre of the modern city of Beijing. Bounded to the north by Tiananmen Gate and the Rostrum, to the west by the Great Hall of the People, to the east by the Museum of the Chinese Revolution and the Museum of Chinese History, and to the south by the imposing Qianmen Gate. Covering 44 hectares, it is the largest public square in the world. In the center of the square are the Monument to the Peoples Heroes and the Chairman Mao Memorial Hall where Mao Tse Tungs embalmed body lies in state. It was from the Rostrum that Mao proclaimed the Peoples Republic of China on the 1st of October 1949. The most recognisable feature of the Rostrum is Maos portrait; a required backdrop for any photo visitors may take of themselves.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Forbidden City-The Palace Museum, Beijing

Forbidden City, so called because it was off limits to commoners throughout the history of Imperial China. Commoners caught in the Palace during this period were executed. Only once a year was a commoner allowed to pass through the central gate of the entrance to the city (reserved for the passage of the Emperor). From this Palace the emperors governed China, often rather erratically, as they tended to become lost in this self contained little world and rarely left it. A truly great monument to a great civilization.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Juyongguan Great Wall, Beijing

Juyongguan [First Pass under the Heavens] is located in an 18 kilometer-long valley named "Guangou" 50 kilometers from Beijing City. It was one of the three most important passes on the Great Wall of China during the Ming and Qing dynasties. The other two passes are Jiayuguan and Shanhaiguan The present Pass was initially built in the Ming Dynasty. It is a very important strategic place connecting the inner land and the area near the northern border of China and as the access point to the capitol, Beijing.
