Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at your hotel at 8:30am and set off toyour first stop: Panjiayuan Ghost Market. The market spreads over 2.4 acres (5 hectares) and boasts more than 4,000 stalls dealing in antiques, arts, handicrafts, and second-hand goods. The market is especially interesting at weekends, when temporary stalls open.

After exploring Panjiayuan, head to yoursecond market: Liulichang Culture Street. This traditional street is known across China and the world for its shops selling ancient books, calligraphy, paintings, brushes, ink stones, and other traditional Chinese crafts. See the Qing-style buildings, watch painters and calligraphers in action, and if you wish, hunt out quality local souvenirs.

After your morning tour, enjoy a shaomai dumpling lunch at the well-known Du Yi Chu Restaurant, founded in 1738 during the Qing Dynasty. Shaomai is the specialty and while very popular with locals and visitors, other dishes and vegetables are also available for you to order.

In the afternoon, your guide will take you to Hongqiao Pearl Market, one of Beijings two main, no-nonsense markets. Far less expensive than the Silk Market due to its location, this five-story complex is famous for its upper two floors, where vendors sell the famous Chinese South Sea Pearl.

Make your last stop at a spa near the Temple of Heaven for a 100-minute massage. Enjoy a full massage, including a 40-minute foot massage and 60-minute whole body oil massage, together with tea and fruits.

  • Sorry for the late review. I booked several private tours via Viator in Beijing. All went smoothly. My guide, Serena, spoke excellent English and was very efficient. She was also very friendly, took a genuine interest in me and took time to explain to me a lot of things about Chine, her way of life, food....would happily book again.

  • Sang Yu, aka Ms. Maria, was a fantastic Guide who showed me around Beijing as we were chauffeured by a great driver. Her English was impeccable, she took me to see a slice of real life in the markets and out to lunch. Sang Yu is knowledgeable and so sweet. She shares her insight and introduces you to some great vendors if you like to shop. We ended up with a massage, unlike any I have ever had on a queen size table. It was a day to remember. Thank you Sang Yu
