Meeting at your hotel in Beijing at 8:00am and get to the nearest subway station for a Beijing highlight day tour accompanied by a Beijing tour guide throughout the day, the tube tour consists of five most important attractions, 2 Beijing walks and one richshaw tour:

Temple of Heaven
Get to the nearest subway station and ride to Tiantan Station (Temple of Heaven) through Line 5. Temple of Heaven is actually a park, neat and big. There are a lot of locals, retired people who come here in the morning to hang out with friends and do morning exercises. There was a lot of activity everywhere you looked around. Many people are playing Taichi ball. In the open areas, people also do ribbon dancing, ballroom dancing, playing cards and dominoes. There was music and singing. The Temple of Heaven was constructed in 1420 AD during the Ming Dynasty as a site for the emperors to offer sacrifices to heaven. Many elements of the temple have symbolic meaning. For example, nine is a good and lucky number in Chinese culture.

Lama Temple
Again take Line 5 northward to Yonghegong ( Lama Temple ). Lama Temple, also called the Yonghe Lamasery, or Yonghegong. It is the most impressive Buddhist temple in the city. Lama Temple was constructed in the 33 Qing Kangxi year (1694) and it is now the largest and best-preserved Lamasery of Yellwo Sect in Beijing. It was the residence of Emperor Yongzheng before his ascending to the throne. However, in 1744 the Qing Dynasty formally turned the dwelling to that of a lamasery, and so Yonghe Lamasery became the national centre of Lama administration.

Walking along Chengxian Street to Drum Tower
After visiting Lama Temple, walk along the famous Chengxian Street ( some part of the street is also called Guozijian Jie). The east-west roadway, starting about 700 years ago with its structures built in line with ancient Chinese customs, once one of the China's most important humanist centers - the Confucius Temple and Guozijian (Imperial College). So walking west along the street, you will come across Kong Miao (Temple of Confucius) and the neighboring Guozijian (Imperial Academy). Walking along Guozijian Jie west until it meets Andingmennei Dajie. Enter this commerical road, turn left and walk south to Guloudong Dajie, another major thoroughfare. Turn right (west) and walk to the Gulou (Drum Tower).

Old Beijing Hutongs Tour by Rickshaw
Take a pedicab to tour hutongs - the narrow streets or lanes formed by quadrangles. Hutongs were established throughout the Yuan (1206-1341), Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) Dynasties. Most of the hutongs we see today were built during the Ming and Qinq. Lunch will be arranged at a local family. After lunch, again take the pedicab to the Zhang Zhi Zhong Train Station for the ride to Tiananmen Square.

Tian'anmen Square
Tiananmen Square is the heart and symbol of Beijing and is the biggest square in the world. Tiananmen ( Gate of Heaven Peace ), which is on the north of the square, is originally the frontispiece of the imperial city of Ming and Qing Dynasties, constructed in the fifteenth year of Ming Yong Le. It is 500 meters wide ,880 meters long and the ground is paved with light granite slate disposed through special technology treatment. The flag-raising ceremony at sunrise and flag-lowering ceremony at sunset are the most magnificent rites.

Forbidden City
After visiting Tiananmen Square, walk to the Forbidden City just north of the sqaure. The Forbidden City ( also known officially as the Imperial Palace Museum ) was built between 1406 and 1420, but was burnt down, rebuilt, sacked and renovated countless times, so most of the architecture you can see today dates from the 1700’s and onwards. The Forbidden City was the seat of Imperial power for 500 years, and is now a major tourist attraction in China. The total area of the complex is 183 acres, so it takes quite a while to walk through, especially if you want to have a close look at everything. All together there are 9,999 1/2 rooms in the Museum, not all of which can be visited.

This unique tube day out will offer you a local experience of the vast city of Beijing travelling by subway and by foot with an specialist walking tour guide. It is a little tiring but a rewarding and educational day.

Tips: This tour involves so much walking that only suitable for the fit and energetic.
