Meet your private driver at your Beijing hotel, and discuss suggestions for places to visit. Your tour is entirely customizable, so you’re free to do what you wish within the time available. If you want to see the sunset flag-lowering ceremony at Tiananmen Square, please indicate this under Special Requirements on booking.
With your itinerary agreed, admire the city lights on route to your first stop. Perhaps head for Wangfujing Street, one of Beijing’s most popular shopping areas. Browse the big-name shops, and explore the night food markets, where vendors sell everything from meat skewers to pancakes.
Maybe stroll around Tiananmen Square to see the floodlit buildings framing what is the world’s largest public square. Admire the illuminated Forbidden City and fountains, and perhaps continue to the National Centre for the Performing Arts: a stunning building rising from a lake.
You may also want to drive to the innovatively shaped CCTV Headquarters, and admire views of Beijing’s Bird’s Nest and Water Cube stadiums, built for the 2008 Olympics.
You could also take up suggestions from your guide, visiting lesser-known gems like the Houhai Lake area, Yinding Bridge, or Yandaixie Street.
After 3-hour, your tour concludes with a hotel drop-off.
