Start your tour at Tian'anmen Square with an informative overview of the communist influences on the country. Tour the grounds and view the array of impressive halls and monuments. From there move on to the Forbidden City, also known as the Imperial Palace Museum. With over 180 acres (73 hectares) of grounds and collections of great halls, the museum is home to antiques and treasures representing all of China's history.|
After an included lunch, continue to one of the symbols of ancient Beijing—hutongs. Hutongs, or narrow lanes, first appeared in Beijing during the (Mongolian) Yuan dynasty. Once the predominant feature of Old Beijing's city center residential areas, today there are only a few such districts left which are spared from modernization efforts. Board a traditional rickshaw to tour through one such residential area where traditional courtyard houses are connected by crisscrossing hutongs.
