Be ready for your day's excursion in your hotel lobby at 8:30 a.m. Board a private tour vehicle and head for the Lama Temple.
Arrive at the temple and explore with your guide. Learn that it is the best-preserved Lamasery of the Buddhist Yellow Sect in the city, built in 1694.
Your next stop is the Beijing South Cathedral, built to house foreign Jesuits during the Ming Dynasty. Notice that the Cathedral has a traditional Chinese-style gate, unlike other churches in Beijing.
After your time at the Cathedral, stop for a traditional Chinese lunch before moving on to the Niujie Mosque, the largest in the city. Built in 996 using traditional Chinese architecture decorated with Arabic calligraphy, it was destroyed and rebuilt during the Ming dynasty.
The day's final stop is the oldest and largest Taoist temple in all of China, the White Cloud Temple.
This private tour ensures personalized attention from your guide and the ability to ask as many questions as you like. Return to your hotel for drop-off at the end of the day.
