The firsr of this Beijing tour is the Mutianyu Great Wall which located among the orchards and pines in the mountains to the north of Beijing, the Great Wall of China was constructed and reconstructed at Mutianyu to keep out the nomadic tribes to the north. A short 60 km trip outside of Beijing, The Great Wall of China at Mutianyu stands as a monument to both the strength and the weakness of the Chinese Ming Dynasty (1368-1627). Come learn, touch, and explore the history of a Wall built over 300 years ago, yet which remains largely intact as it snakes endlessly across the mountain ridgelines
Spend a few hours exploring the Forbidden City with a guide in your language so that your kids can have an interesting explanation of this former emperors home. There are lots of interesting animal and creature sculptures throughout.
The Temple of Heaven is another interesting place to visit on your China trip. This colorful temple is where the emperors would make sacrifices to the heavens. The kids will get a kick out of the echo wall. And if you stand at one side and whisper then the person on the opposite side can clearly hear it though the wall is 193 meters in circumference. There is lots going on here including Tai chi, fan dancing, kite flying and more. There are vendors selling all the fun games you can enjoy here.
Hutong represents an important culture element of Beijing city just as Stone Gate is an important culture for Shanghai city.Thanks to Beijing’s long history and superior status as capital for six dynasties, almost every hutong has its anecdotes, and some are even associated with historic events.
In contrast to the court life and elite culture represented by the Forbidden City, Summer Palace and the Temple of Heaven, the hutongs reflect the culture of grassroots Beijingers. The hutong are residential neighborhoods that still form the heart of Old Beijing.
