Description

Tour II of Historic Beijing begins at the Yonghe Lamasery and one of the best examples of the regions many sacred temples. Lama Temple reveals diverse architectural styles from Han, Mongolia, Manchuria and Tibet, and the impressive 60-foot Maitreya Buddha, carved form a single sandalwood tree. Then it's on to one of the high points of anyone visiting Beijing, a trip to the zoo to see the frolicking pandas, a living Chinese treasure.

After a stop for lunch, you will then visit the Emperors retreat, the historic Summer Palace. Used for eight centuries, the Empress Dowager Cixi had the estate renovated in the 19th century, including the manmade lake we see today. Besides touring the ornate palace, you will stroll through one of Beijing's favorite parks.

We recommend you also take Tour I, which is held on alternating days. Each is a complete tour and can be taken separately.
