    Your friendly local tour guide will pick you up from your Beijing downtown hotel lobby between 7:00 am - 8:00 am, get in a comfortable coach to start the full-day Beijing sightseeing. You will firstly come to check out the lovely giant pandas in Beijing Zoo. The site is comprised of 16 different exhibition areas and halls, but the most popular one is the Panda Hall. Afterwards, head for Olympic Green and you may take amazing pictures of the Bird's Nest and Water Cube.

    Continue to visit the Lama Temple (Yonghe Lamasery). It is considered as the largest and best-preserved lamasery in China. This exceptional temple is a glittering attraction, where riveting roofs, fabulous frescoes, magnificent decorative arches, tapestries, eye-popping carpentry, Tibetan prayer wheels, Buddhist statues and a superb pair of Chinese lions mingle with dense clouds of incense.

    Then enjoy a traditional Chinese cuisine lunch in local restaurant, and move on to have a Hutong tour. Hutongs are the origin of Beijing culture and could reflect the ancient Beijing life.
