Tour Itinerary
 
1 Picking up travelers from hotel on departure time, and then driving to the
   Forbidden City, The abode of 24 Ming and Qing emperors of the celestial Empire,
   the forbidden city is a fittingly awe-inspiring sight, Enclosed behind it's moat and
   9.9m high walls are 980 buildings, vast courtyards and long corridors that
   occupy a total area of 720,000 square meters, It's alleged that as many as
   1,000,000 workers and 100,000 artisans participated in the construction of this
   imperial palace, which began in 1406 and was completed in 1420 during the
   reign of Ming dynasty, the last emperor Puyi, left the Forbidden city in 1924,11
   years after his abdication and the establishment of the Republic of China, after
   Puyi's departure, the Forbidden city, which had long been off-limits to most
   mortals, was opened to the public, Hence its current Chinese name, gugong
   bowuyuan, meaning 'the palace Museum'.
 
2 Visit the Forbidden City along the central axis from south to north for 2 hours.
 
3 Drive (30 minutes) to the magnificent and colorful Temple of Heaven -- The
   temple of heaven served Ming and Qing dynasty emperors as a vast sacred
   space to perform ceremonial rites on behalf of the Chinese nation, the layout of
   the compound reflects its religious purpose and so adheres to geomantic
   precepts, for instance, the northern end of the park is curved while the southern
   end is square, reflecting the traditional Chinese conception of heaven as round
   and earth as square .likewise, the park gates are located at the four cardinal
    points. Visit it for 1 hour.
 
4 Before having lunch, travelers have 45 minutes to enjoy the Chinese traditional
   Silk arts. It is well known that silk is discovered in China as one of the best
   materials for clothing-it has a look and feeling of richness that no other
   materials can match
 
5 Have traditional Chinese lunch at Bangfuchun restaurant  near Summer Palace.
 
6 Visit Summer Palace, is a wonderful place to explore, as long ago as the Yuan
   dynasty, officials set up their private gardens in the scenic area, but the summer
   palace didn't take on its present appearance until the reign of Emperor Qianlong
   of the Qing dynasty. He deepened the park's manmade lake and added building
   to serve as a 'country home' for his mother, though it would be the Empress
   Dowager Cixi who would have the biggest impact on the palace's appearance
   Visit it for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
 
7 At last, driving the travelers back to their hotel.
