Full description
This full day excursion in Beijing will introduce you to several icons of the ancient city, including cute panda bears, the beautiful Summer Palace, and the mysterious Yonghe Lamasery. During the day, you’ll also have some time to do some shopping at the Lihengtang Pearl Market.

Begin at the Yonghe Lamasery, one of the best examples of the region's Tibetan Buddhist temples. Also known as the "Palace of Peace and Harmony Lama Temple," or simply “Lama Temple”, it incorporates diverse architectural styles from the Hans, Mongolians, Manchurians and Tibetans.

Wander through the complex and soak up the enchanting atmosphere before moving on to one of the high points of every trip to Beijing, a visit to Beijing Zoo. The zoo, housed in the grounds of a former Ming dynasty manor, is home to many animals endemic to China, but it is the bamboo-chewing, black-eyed pandas that are its chief draw.

After a pause for lunch, visit the scenic Summer Palace. Used by emperors for eight centuries, the Empress Dowager Cixi had the palace renovated in the 19th century. Stroll through one of Beijing's favorite parks before the end of the tour and your hotel drop-off.
