    Peking Duck is originally from Beijing, which is the capital of Mainland China. It is prepared with a kind of fruit tree, so it has a fruity flavor. Its skin is very crispy. You also eat it in a very special way. First you need to use a special bread. Then you can start your tasty meal. Usually, you cannot finish a whole Peking Duck, so you can make soup with the leftovers.

    Most Chinese people really like Peking Roast Duck. You can go to a Chinese restaurant to order this dish rather than prepare it at home because it takes some time to cook it, and you need a lot of things to prepare it.

    The duck is divided into three parts and made in three different ways:

    The first way is the most popular one. The meat is selected from the best part of the duck and is boned. Green onions and dressing are added to make it savory and a little sweet. It is served with thin crepes. You just spread the dressing on the crepe, add some green onions, and roll it up.

    The second way is to use the part of the duck with less meat. It can be fried with garlic, chilies, ginger or onions. A third way allows you to make use of the entire duck. You can make soup with cabbage and the duck meat with bones.

    After dinner, you will go experience the brightest and best Beijing acrobatic show.

    After the show, your guide will bring you back to your hotel in Beijing.

    In China, acrobatics have been a part of the culture since the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 220). Acrobatics were part of village harvest festivals. During the Tang Dynasty, acrobatics saw much the same sort of development as European acrobatics saw during the Middle Ages, with court displays during the 7th through 10th century dominating the practice. Acrobatics continues to be an important part of modern Chinese variety art.Though the term initially applied to tightrope walking, in the 19th century, a form of performance art including circus acts began to use the term as well. In the late 19th century, tumbling and other acrobatic and gymnastic activities became competitive sport in Europe.

    Chaoyang Theater is one of the top venues to enjoy traditional Acrobatics Shows in Beijing. Established in 1984, it was designated to be the theater to host government guests and visiting delegations in 1986. Chaoyang theatre also attracts both domestic and foreign tourists with its refined performance from late 1980s.So far the theater has been putting on acrobatics shows for more than 20 years, and received over 3 million guests from overseas. Numerous foreign leaders and distinguished guests have come to this theater to view its wonderful acrobatics show.

    The Mutianyu area was once just a small village. However, when the wall was built it was named as the most dangerous part due to its important geographic location.

    This pass played a role as one of the most important strategic points in the mission to protect the capital of ancient China along with the Ming tombs during the Ming dynasty.

    In 1569, the Mutianyu Great Wall was rebuilt by the famous general Qiji guang.

In 1828 they started to stage joint performances at the Qing court with the local opera troupes from Hubei province. The art was influenced by Beijing local dialect, and drew on each other, as well as the artistic styles and expressions of other local operas, particularly singing.

Then, walk along the newly opened Ruins of the Great Wall, an authentic and less-traveled section with insight into China’s magnificent past. A Chinese banquet lunch with Peking duck completes this amazing full-day experience.

    After pickup from your Beijing hotel in the morning, your VIP tour begins with a drive to the Forbidden City, a 180-acre (74-hectare) imperial palace that housed 24 emperors since it was built in 1420. Once forbidden to all without permission from the emperor, the UNESCO World Heritage Site – the world’s largest palace complex – includes 980 buildings and 8,700 rooms.

    When you arrive, follow your guide on a tour of the Palace Museum, exploring the world’s largest collection of preserved ancient wooden structures as you view the vast collection of antique artwork and artifacts on exhibit. Your guide will enlighten you about China’s cultural history from the Ming and Qing dynasties along the way.

    Then, follow your guide on a special and intimate tour of two of the Forbidden City's hidden treasures – Treasure Gallery and Clock Exhibition Hall. First, venture into the Treasure Gallery (Zhenbaoguan), situated in the northeast area of the Forbidden City. See the unique displays of royal jewelry, imperial robes and crowns, including the famous Jade Cabbage. Admire works made of gold, silver, pearl and jade as well as utensils, tea services and daily necessities of the imperial families that resided here.

    Head to the Clock Exhibition Hall, where 200 clocks and watches from the imperial collection, including some Chinese-made timepieces, are on display. Here, admire the chime clock, made during the Qing Dynasty by the royal clockmakers, and the whimsical 20-foot-tall (6-meter) water clock, constructed in 1799 and the largest of its kind in China.

    From the Forbidden City, head to Jingshan Hill, the highest point in Beijing city.

Virtually isolated, the Ruins of this UNESCO World Heritage site will afford you a tranquil exploration of its ancient forts, towers and courtyards.

    Private Beijing Day Tour of the famous Eastern Qing Tombs and Huangyaguan Great Wall more_vert
    *$173 AUD Book
    close

    If you want to see the exquisitely built tombs of the Qing emperors and a less visited section of the Great Wall, this private day tour from Beijing might be the best choice. The Eastern Qing Tombs is located in the Zunhua County of Hebei Province, about 125 kilometers away from Beijing. It is the largest, most complete and best preserved imperial tomb existing in China. Five Qing emperors, 15 empresses, 136 imperial concubines, 3 princes and 2 princesses were buried there. Also, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful countryside of Beijing en route. The section of the Great Wall you will see is Huangyaguan Pass; it was first built during the Northern Qi Dynasty (550-557) and repaired extensively during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) under the supervision of the most famous Ming General Qi Jiguang.

    You will meet your guide at 8am in the lobby of your hotel, and from there will drive 2-2.5 hours to visit the Eastern Qing Tombs. With a history of more than 300 years, the 161 emperors, empresses, concubines, princes and princesses of the Qing Dynasty were buried in 15 mausoleums. Because they cover an area of 80 square kilometers, all visitors would take the golf cart which stops at each attraction on your request. You will see three places of the Eastern Qing Tombs. 

    Yuling Tomb: tomb of Emperor Qianlong, the most competent Qing Emperor (1711-1799) and the most famous emperor in Chinese history. Most parts of the Forbidden City that are still standing were rebuilt during his reign. Yuling is one of the most splendid of all royal tombs in China. It has the finest tomb chamber, a series of nine vaults separated by four solid marble doors located at a depth of 54 meters. From the first marble gate, all walls, vaulted ceilings, and gates are covered with exquisitely carved Buddhist imagery like the Four Heavenly Kings, the Eight Bodhisattvas and the Eight Treasures, as well as ritual instruments and more than 30,000 words of Tibetan scripture and Sanskrit. 

    Dongling Tomb: tomb of the famous and notorious Empress Dowager Cixi (1835-1908) who ruled China for 48 years. Her tomb is famous for its extremely luxurious decoration. The Longen Hall along with its eastern and western side halls are made from precious rose wood timbers. All three halls are decorated with gold-glazed colored painting, gilded dragons, and carved stone rails. 

    Sacred Way of Xiaoling: the 6 kilometers long road starts from the widest stone archway in China, with beautifully carved figures of lions, Kylin and clouds. Also, there are 18 pairs of exquisitely sculptured giant statues; 6 pairs of human figures and 12 animals, which served as guardians of the emperor’s afterlife. 

    Afterwards, you'll continue to see the Huangyaguan Great Wall; about 40 minutes drive from the tomb. Because the cliff rocks to the east of the pass are mostly yellow, it is called Huangya (Yellow Cliff) Gaun (Pass). It is a section of the Wall located in the Ji County, Tianjin City. It was originally built over 1,400 years ago in the Northern Qi Dynasty and reinforced with brick walls in the Ming Dynasty. It is an ideal place for people who want to enjoy some peace and quiet, and see a section of the Wall with fewer tourists.

    At the end of the day, relax on the drive back to your hotel.

    *$128 AUD Book

    Beat the crowds and see the Great Wall as you've always dreamed of it on this 8-hour private day trip from Beijing to the Great Wall at Jinshanling. This is one of the most beautiful stretches of the Great Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and may well be familiar to you from magazines and newspapers: it's also a relatively challenging hike, so decent fitness is recommended. Tour includes entrance fees, cable car, and lunch.

    Eat a big breakfast before your private guide and driver collect you from your Beijing hotel at 8am, or bring snacks for the wall, as lunch happens late in the day.

    It's about a 2- or 2.5-hour journey from Beijing to the Great Wall at Jinshanling. This stretch of the Great Wall is about 96 miles (155 kilometers) from Beijing, and was rebuilt during the Ming dynasty, from 1567: it connects to the Great Wall at Simatai in the east and the Great Wall at Gubeikou in the west.

    The Great Wall at Jinshanling is around 6.5 miles (10.5 kilometers) long, and includes five passes, 67 watchtowers, and two beacon towers. It's highly photogenic, so it's often this section of the Wall that appears in magazines and newspapers.

    You'll ride the cable car up from the parking lot to the Great Wall to save on energy. Your private guide will explain the different walking routes you can choose from, as well as identifying the best positions for photos. Enjoy between two and four hours on the wall depending on the route you choose and the time available, before driving back to Beijing.

    Savor a lunch of Beijing classic dishes in a local restaurant before you return to your hotel: you'll be back at base by 4pm.

    Immerse in Chinese culture and discover the heart of Beijing on this 4-hour private night tour. You'll see the Drum Tower and Bell Tower, ride a boat on Back Lakes (Hou Hai) with a Chinese musician, enjoy dinner with a local family in their 'hutong' alleyway, visit a traditional courtyard house, and explore Yandai Xie Street.

    As this is a private tour, you can choose to depart at any time from 5:30pm to 7:30pm – just specify your preferred time on booking in the 'special requirements' field.

    Your private guide will meet you in your hotel lobby and transfer you by private, climate-controled minivan to the Drum and Bell Towers, where your Beijing night tour begins. You'll learn about the function and the history of these impressive edifices, for centuries the tallest structures in all Beijing, before you walk the short distance to Yandaixie Street.

    Once a famous historic street, this is now a popular tourist attraction, with plenty of souvenir stalls and reproductions of classic architecture.

    Enjoy a Chinese dinner with a local family and learn about Chinese family life. Your guide will also navigate you through the hutong, Beijing's famous low-rise alleyways, to a traditional siheyuan courtyard house: learn why this is the most expensive style of house in Beijing now and how wealthy Beijingers are spending millions of dollars refurbishing these vintage homes.

    It's another short stroll to Back Lakes (Hou Hai), one of the most popular bar areas in Beijing. Local people love the beautiful lake, which attracted high-ranking officials to the area during the Ming and Qing dynasties because of its great feng shui.

    Here you'll enjoy a private rowing boat cruise for an hour, just as officials might have done during imperial times. Sip tea and enjoy typical snacks as a traditional Chinese musician serenades you with either the guzheng (Chinese zither) or the pipa (Chinese lute).

    From here, you'll drive back to your hotel, arriving between 9:30pm and 11:30pm depending on your choice of departure time.

    Private Day Trip: Shilinxia Glass Platform and Site of Ming City Wall Park more_vert
    *$146 AUD Book
    close

    See two marvels of Chinese engineering, ancient and modern, in one day on this 8-hour private trip to Shilinxia Glass Platform and the Site of Ming City Wall Park. Step out above a 1300-foot (400-meter) canyon on the vertiginous glass platform, the largest cantilevered viewing platform in the world, then see the ruins of the 15th-century wall that once encircled all Beijing.

    Meet your private guide in your hotel lobby at 8am for the 2-hour drive to Shilinxia (Stone Forest Gorge) through the rolling hills outside of Beijing.

    Also known as the Jingdong Stone Forest Gorge, the Shilinxia Scenic Area covers an area of around 4.5 square miles (12 square kilometers) about 43 miles (70 kilometers) northeast of Beijing. The gorge is home to many striking rock formations, some of which weigh over 1100 tons (1000 tonnes).

    After looking at a few sculptural formations with your guide, you'll take a cable car (own expense) halfway up the mountain, then climb to the peak, around 2,500 feet (768 meters) above sea level, where a dramatic canyon plunges over 1300 feet (400 meters) into the void. Please note the steps are pretty steep so a reasonable level of fitness is required: it takes about half an hour to climb to the top.

    You’ll be rewarded with the highlight of the tour: the world's largest cantilevered viewing platform, a staggering circle of glass suspended in mid-air high, high above the gorge. At 103 feet (32.8 meters) long, the Shilinxia Glass Platform projects 37 feet (11.4 meters) further than the Grand Canyon Skywalk, making it a breathtaking experience – provided you're not scared of heights, of course!

    Slip on your shoe covers and stride out over the gorge. Besides the incredible views down through the reinforced glass, you'll be able to see all the way across to Jinhai Lake and Mount Pan near Tianjin.

    Enjoy a delicious Chinese lunch at a nearby restaurant before you drive back into the city to the Site of Ming City Wall Park. It takes around an hour and 40 minutes to reach this impressive park where the last surviving section of the 15th-century city wall that once encircled Beijing has been preserved and rebuilt: the rest was demolished in the 1960s to make way for new roads and the subway. 

    Once the wall stretched for 15 miles (24 kilometers) around the city: today, just 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) remain. Admire the brickwork, complete with bullet holes in places, and ascend the impressive, heavily fortified Southeast Corner Watchtower, with 144 windows for archers.

    From here, you'll drive a short way to your hotel, arriving around 5pm.

The rest of them are considered as minorities who have their own culture, language, costume and appearance, as well as houses with their unique characteristics. The theme park is a perfect place to see their architecture, ethnic relics and their traditional performances. 

    Continue the tour by going to the Olympic Village to have an exterior look of the Bird’s Nest and Water Cube, as well as some other iconic stadiums. The highlight of the tour will be going up the 246 meters high Olympic Observation Tower. It has four smaller circular floors at different heights and positions below a larger top floor, which meant to echo the Olympic rings. You will also see the 202 pieces of selected gold artifacts from the Forbidden City, being displayed in the mall hall of the tower. It has an annually thematic exhibition based on the Five Elements, and this year is the theme of Gold. 

    Lunch will be served in the most famous and popular Dim Sum restaurant frequented by Chinese superstars in Beijing, Jindingxuan. After that, continue to visit the Lama Temple. It was originally a palatial residence built in 1694 by Qing Emperor Kangxi for his fourth son, Prince Yongzheng. In 1735, Emperor Yongzheng died and his son Qianlong succeeded the throne. He upgraded Yonghegong to the status of an Imperial Palace by replacing the green titles of the roof with yellow ones, for the yellow color was the imperial color in the old days. In 1744, Yonghegong was formally converted into a lamasery with the name Lame Temple.

Your guide will point out the many historical sites along the way.
