The Temple of Heaven 天壇 occupies 273 hectares, more than twice the area of the Imperial Palace. It was built during the reign of Emperor Yongle (1403-1425) of the Ming Dynasty, and took 14 years to complete. The Qing Dynasty emperors Qianlong and Jiaqing had the temple expanded further. It was the site of Imperial sacrifices to Heaven during the Ming and Qing periods, a total of over 500 years.

The three main structures are circular, corresponding to the supposed shape of Heaven. The have deep-blue glazed tile roofs and a platform each constructed of slabs of white marble. Each of the three platforms consists of three tiers, making a total of nine, a mystic number said to be the epitome of yang, or the positive principle of the Universe and signifying Heaven.

Afternoon visit to the Summer Palace 頤和園 (including the East Gate, the Hall of Benevolence and Longevity, the Kunming Lake, the Hall of Joyful Longevity, the Long Corridor and the Marble Boat).

The Summer Palace is located on the northwestern outskirts of Beijing. From the Yuan Dynasty on, it was a summer retreat for the imperial family, hence the name Summer Palace. Its main features are Wanshoushan (Longevity Hill) and Kunming Lake.

The park's natural beauty is set off by a host of very decorative halls, towers, galleries, pavilions and bridges. The architects adapted the buildings to blend in with or accentuate the natural surroundings in an ingenious way, very different from the courtyard style of the Forbidden City.

The Long Corridor is the longest in the history of China's landscape gardening. 728 metres long, it was first built in 1750. It bears 14,000 colourful paintings, with themes from Chinese history, mythology and tradition.

The Summer Palace is a popular spot for Beijingers all year round with boating on Kunming lake in the summer and ice skating in the winter.

Hotel stay in Beijing (Breakfast & Lunch).

Day 04 Beijing 北京 -Hong Kong 香港

Breakfast at hotel.
A morning excursion to the Hutongs 胡同- traditional alleys (Siheyuan) and Prince Gong's Palace by rickshaw.

The Hutongs are traditional Beijing dwellings, and the style dates from the Yuan Dynasty. As the name "siheyuan" implies, the layout of these houses comprises a central courtyard, with rooms of detached buildings on all four sides. Commonly, the main entrance is an open gateway, guarded just inside by a "spirit screen". This is a wall preventing passers-by peering into the courtyard, although folklore has it that it stops evil spirits, which apparently can only travel in straight lines, penetrating the household. The quarters of the master of the house face the courtyard and the south, an auspicious direction.

After lunch, you will be transferred to airport for departure (breakfast and lunch).


Have a nice holidays!
