You could enjoy the panoramic views of the Forbidden City at the Wanchun Pavilion on the top of Jingshan Mountain. In addition, there is a blind-dating spot at the foot of the mountain.
  • Great Wall of China – Mutianyu
    The Great Wall of China – Mutianyu is a must-visit spot during your stay in Beijing as well. Compared to the visitors in the Great Wall of China – Badaling, fewer Chinese domestic visitors explore the Great Wall of China – Mutianyu. It offers different breathtaking views on the mountain around the year. If you are lucky enough, you may see one or two wild cats there.
  • Summer Palace
    If you don’t have enough time to visit Suzhou but you are interested in the structure of Suzhou gardens, the Summer Palace offers you a great choice to admire the similar style. It is acclaimed as “the Museum of Royal Gardens”. In the ancient China, the royal family liked to spend the hot summer in the garden. Old buildings in the Qing Dynasty there are built around the Kunming Lake.

    The Temple of Heaven is the dedicated venue for the emperors in the Ming and Qing Dynasties to sacrifice for the Heaven and pray for good harvest. As the largest complex for sacrificing the Heaven in the world, it offers us a great option to explore the precious tools used by the emperors for the ceremony.

Carvings on the doors and windows are exquisitely designed. The exhibits there will tell you some stories about the mansion too.
