What You Can Expect
This Beijing tour starts from the famous Lama Temple, once the residence of a royal court. This vibrantly ornamented temple is one of the largest and most important Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in the world.
Built in 1694 AD, Lama Temple houses tranquil gardens, superb sculptures and a veritable treasury of Buddhist art. Then you head to see the most important living treasure in Chin - the giant Panda in Beijing Zoo. Seizing this rare opportunity to see the endangered treasure is a great pleasure.
After a delicious Chinese lunch you will travel to an altar built in 1420 AD to memorialize the divine farmer Shennong, an emperor from thousands of years ago who taught his people the art of agriculture. Inside is a museum documenting the rise of Chinese architecture and agriculture in ancient times.
William was lovely and a great tour guide, there was only myself, my mum and my niece were on this tour, so William really took the time to make sure that we saw as much as possible without being rushed, really relaxed day, well worth the money!
What can I say...the pandas are too cute for words. Also saw beautiful peacocks and other exotics. The Tibetan Temple was awesome. Monks, nuns, and the faithful practicing their faith in a centuries old religious complex. A great day in Beijing.
