Trip Summary

Chinese Culture, Gourmet, At a Glance

Two days in Beijing might not seem like very long, but it's just enough to tick off a few of the Chinese capital's must-see sights.

Let your imagination run wild in the majestic imperial fortress of the Forbidden City, holiday like an emperor in the stunning gardens of the Summer Palace, and get a glimpse of the cutting-edge sports venues built for the 2008 Olympics. We'll also take you to China's most famous attraction, the Great Wall, where you'll have the chance to whizz down the side of the ancient ramparts in a toboggan.

You'll get a closer look at daily life in the Temple of Heaven park. We'll also help you make the most of your short stay in Beijing by treating you to delicious and authentic Chinese meals.

Of course, this package tour can be customized according to your needs and preferences. Simply ask your agent!
