Day Route: Description
1  Arrival in Beijing: You’ll be provided with an arrival and pick-up service straight from the airport, after which you will be transferred to a hotel and allowed some free time for settling in and making yourself comfortable. You may also get to visit the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, depending on the time of your reaching. A group dinner will be arranged in the evening so that you may familiarize yourself with others.  
2  Beijing: If you were not able to visit the Forbidden City along with Tiananmen Square the prior day, this will be arranged for you on the second day’s morning. After this, a visit to the World Chocolate Wonderland Theme Park will be in order, where you will witness a whopping 80,000 kg of Belgian chocolate on display. Children will be given the opportunity to make their very own chocolate. They’ll also get to view a miniature chocolate form of the army of China’s first emperor as well as a chocolate replica of the Great Wall that is 12 meters in length. To avoid the intense summer heat, the chocolate exhibition only takes place from January to April. Whenever it’s not feasible, an alternative is provided in the form of a visit to the Tuanjiehu water park, which offers loads of fun through its wave pools and shimmering lakes.  
3  Altar of Heaven & Lama Temple: The third day includes a visit to the Altar of Heaven, considered to be symbolic of the divine link between heaven and earth – a world where both gods and men coexist. Chinese architecture is visible in its full glory here. During harvest time, ancient gods in the Altar of Heaven were offered a plethora of fruits and vegetables to appease them. The Altar of Heaven is thought of as being the seat of emergence of one of the greatest civilizations of the world. Come mid-morning and the old city of Beijing greets us as we attend a child-friendly cooking class in the hutongs – the meal prepared in the class will be our lunch. Afterwards, we will make a quick trip to the newly renovated and breathtaking Lama Temple, which survived the Cultural Revolution and is considered Beijing’s most reliable temple due to its widespread reputation for fulfilling whatever wishes one prays for. The Buddhist name of the Lama Temple can broadly be translated into “Palace of Harmony and Peace” and is very apt considering that, while within the temple, one does not become aware of the bustling traffic that exists right behind the temple walls.  
4  Mutianyu Great Wall and Ming Tombs: As morning greets us, we traverse northwards out of the city and arrive at the best maintained and most breathtaking sections of the Great Wall at Mutianyu, originally built in the 6th century. A cable car then transports us to the mountain top where we can visualize amazing views as we stroll on the granite slabs that dates back to the Ming Dynasty. After going on a summer toboggan run downhill, we navigate the road to the Ming Tombs – declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2003 – wherein the most remarkable imperial tombs of Chinese history exist. The individual graves of 13 of the 16 Ming emperors can be found at the foot of the Tianshou mountain on an area spanning ​​80 km. Afterwards, we drive back to the hotel.  
5  Conclusion of the Beijing trip: A choice to either be transferred back to the airport or continue the journey is given (on individual request).
