What to expect
  • Depart your central Beijing hotel at about midday by private, climate-controlled vehicle with your guide, and travel to Jingshan Hill in Jingshan Park. Hear how the hill was constructed using earth excavated during the building of the Forbidden City, and climb to the top to absorb the far-reaching views over the palace rooftops and downtown Beijing. Tour the Summer Palace, whose landscaped gardens and pavilions were created in 1750 as a summer retreat for China’s rulers. See highlights including the boat-shaped Marble Boat pavilion and Longevity Hill’s halls and towers, and stretch your legs along the Long Corridor, the world’s longest covered walkway. This wooden walkway fringes the palace’s Kunming Lake, and is adorned with 14,000 exquisite imperial paintings of landscapes, animals, and figures. Next, step onto a small boat and cruise within the complex to see a village created by the emperors to mimic China’s water towns and sail past some of the palace’s most beautiful bridges, including the 17-Arch Bridge, the longest imperial bridge in the country. Having explored the Summer Palace, head for dinner at Beijing’s 1,329-foot (405-meter) high Central TV Tower, the city’s tallest structure. Savor a delicious buffet meal at the tower’s revolving restaurant—the highest in Beijing—and before or after, visit the tower's Observation Platform for spectacular views down over the illuminated city. Your trip then concludes with a drop-off at your hotel.
