Our journey continues at Tiananmen Square, one of the world's most renowned squares, located in the heart of Beijing. As the fourth largest city square globally, spanning 440,000 square meters, it stands adjacent to the Tiananmen Gate, separating the square from the Forbidden City. Tiananmen Square has witnessed pivotal Chinese events, including Mao Zedong's declaration of the People's Republic of China in 1949. We will then explore the Forbidden City, the iconic Imperial Palace, with its ancient wooden structures and historical significance as the former residence of Chinese emperors from the Ming to the Qing dynasties (1420 to 1924). In the afternoon, a visit to the exquisite Summer Palace awaits, where the natural beauty of lakes and hills harmonizes with architectural brilliance. The day concludes with the culinary delight of a traditional roast duck dinner. (B,L,D)

Dating back to the 16th century during the Ming dynasty, this particular segment has earned a prestigious place on UNESCO's World Heritage List. After immersing ourselves in this historical marvel, the focus shifts to modern China with a visit to the Olympic Green and Park, originally built in Beijing for the 2008 Summer Olympics.
