Treat the kids (or your inner child) to a family-friendly day out at Happy Valley of Beijing, the city’s favorite theme park. There’s no need to faff around with public transport: Your private guide collects you from your hotel, shows you around the park, and accompanies you to your central seats at the Golden Mask Dynasty Show, a visual feast of acrobatics, dance, and drama.
Visit a number of Beijing highlights, all found within the Second Ring Road, without any of the hassles of public transport or drudgery of an impersonal bus tour. On this private, full-day tour, explore the colorful Lama Temple in Dongcheng, get imposing photos of Beijing’s central Drum Tower, and walk around the lush grounds of Beihai Park, on the edge of Qianhai Lake. Cap off the day by learning how to make dumplings in an intimate cooking lesson held in an inner-city hutong.
The 810-foot (247-meter) Olympic Park Observation Tower, known as “Big Nails”, echoes the Olympic rings with five separate circular platforms. Spectacular by night, when it’s lit up in neon, it can offer equally dramatic city views on a clear day. Prebook your tickets online to ensure a space at a time of your choosing and avoid disappointment if the observation deck is closed.
