In the morning, meet the guide at your hotel and take the subway line 5 to the Temple of Heaven (UNESCO), where ancient Chinese emperors would make sacrifices to Heaven and pray for bountiful harvests.
Next, hop on the metro to visit the Tian’anmen Square, and then walk to the Forbidden City (UNESCO), where the 24 emperors of the Ming and the Qing Dynasties ruled for nearly 500 years (1420-1911). Experience the architectural splendor of the palaces, ceremonial courtyards and private quarters.
If time permits, you could head to the Jingshan Park, which you could enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Forbidden City.
The subway cars are solidly packed with people during rush hours (7:00-9:30 and 16:00-19:00). Please prepare for the crowds.
