Then a comfortable private drive will take you to downtown Beijing to check in at a select hotel. Just relax the rest of this day and prepare for your inspiring trips on next days. Overnight stay in hotel.

Day 02: Visit Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Yonghe Temple & Temple of Heaven
Today, your guide and driver will pick you up from the hotel at 09:00 and transfer you to the heart of Beijing to visit the Tiananmen Square, the world's largest urban square where a million people can gather here for the nation’s grandest ceremonies. Founded during Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644 AD), this place is a witness to more than 600 years of China’s history. Stand before the centrally-erected Monument to the People's Heroes, ready to be awestruck by this magnificent obelisk built to commemorate those martyrs who fought for the country’s freedom and justice.

30 minutes after strolling on the square, you will walk for a few minutes across the Chang'an Avenue and come to the world-famous Forbidden City, or the Palace Museum, the world’s largest and best-preserved wooden architectural complex, once home to 24 emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368 – 1911 AD). People were denied entry in ancient times, hence the name “Forbidden City”. Follow your guide and try to immerse yourself in this 13.8-times-bigger-than-White-House imperial palace complex. Set foot on broad courtyards, climb steps to visit a myriad of sublime palaces with sunlit golden tiles and red walls, feel the “forbidden” air enclosed by 10-meters-high walls and 52-meters-wide moat, breathe the air that once belonged only to supreme powers of ancient China, and appreciate countless precious historical relics that survived the vicissitudes of history. Definitely, this 2-to-3-hour visit will get you a glimpse into the luxury of China’s ancient imperial culture.

In the afternoon, we will head to visit the Yonghe Temple, the largest Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Beijing that has been preserved intact for 300 years. Built to show the Qing emperor’s respect for Tibetan Buddhism, you’ll be amazed how Han, Manchu, Mongolian and Tibetan architecture combined into one unique design. Amid fragrance of sandalwood and the solemnity felt everywhere from Buddhist statues to prayer flags, you can still find your inner peace in the temple despite the huge number of tourists every day.

Next, you will be taken to visit the Temple of Heaven, the holy altar where ancient emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties offered sacrifice to the God of Heaven for bumper harvests. The world’s largest sacrificial architectural complex of its kind, the altar is designed by a Ming emperor to symbolize China’s ancient cosmological belief: heaven is round and earth square, and it’s the very harmony between the two that gives birth to everything in the world. Stepping into this mystic compound, you’ll notice distinct circular shapes and buildings and square walls from other buildings anywhere else, which represent Heaven and Earth respectively. Some buildings also reflect the ancient Chinese wisdom in practicing physics, like acoustics for the Echo Wall of Imperial Vault of Heaven, through which even a murmur can spread over a fairly long distance. Overnight stay in hotel.

Day 03: Visit Mutianyu Great Wall & Bird's Nest; Hutong Tour by Rickshaw
This morning, we will travel to Mutianyu Great Wall to visit one of the greatest man-made projects on earth, which is definitely a highlight of your 4 days Beijing tour. On the dragon-like winding path, you will not only get to appreciate the defensive beacon towers lying at advantageous strategic forts, but also enjoy the pristine spectacle of its surrounding lush greens that varies in different seasons, which is what makes it “the most beautiful part of the Great Wall”. To climb the wall, a round-way cable car will be arranged for you to save energy and time to hike on the wall. A thrill lover? Take a chairlift up and a toboggan when going down! Decide which to take and your guide will be glad to make arrangements for you.

In the afternoon, we will drive back to downtown Beijing and make a photo stop for you before the Bird's Nest, namely the Olympic National Stadium, once the place holding both the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics and 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. Next, you will have a Hutong tour by rickshaw to travel through narrow alleys and relive the past Beijing. Different from the Forbidden City, Hutong represents and shows ordinary and regular local lives. A Hutong family visit will be arranged for you to get close to local lifestyles. You’ll be taken to a local courtyard house, to learn how its structure embodies China’s traditional family values. Overnight stay in hotel.

Day 04: Visit Panda House & Summer Palace; - Flight to Lhasa.
Panda time! Today we will have a lovely time in the Panda Hall of Beijing Zoo. Built in 1990, the Panda Hall is one of the biggest bases in China to exhibit, breed, and research panda. Native to China, those cuddly, adorkable fur balls of course are a must-visit. What makes the Panda Hall in Beijing special is its philosophy behind the whole design. Going inside, in the outdoor hall, you may be impressed by how the natural scenery co-exists with man-made constructs, the idea of which was borrowed from Chinese classical gardens to simulate a wild habitat. You’ll feel as if you are right in the wilderness, and before you are naughty pandas climbing up and down living in the moment. To see more pandas, go to the indoor hall, where you will find a different lifestyle of pandas.

After visiting pandas, we will continue the visit to the Summer Palace. As a birthday gift from a Qing emperor to his mother, the summer retreat is the largest and best-preserved imperial garden worldwide. The garden features a peach-shaped Kunming Lake, symbolizing longevity and taking up three-quarters of the total area. Inside the garden, you’ll get to visit the Long Corridor, the longest gallery of its kind with more than 14 thousand paintings to feast your eyes upon. Take your time to enjoy the stunning views here. The classical elegancy will definitely make you want to return.

Your sightseeing trip will come to the end here. Your guide and driver will transfer you to the airport for your flight to Lhasa. Welcome to Lhasa, the capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region! Upon your arrival at the train station in Lhasa, the tour guide and driver will meet you at the exit, and then escort you to the hotel in downtown Lhasa. You can have a good rest to get used to the altitude (3,650m) in your hotel and get ready to explore Lhasa with your guide the next day. Overnight stay in hotel.

Day 05: Lhasa City Tour | Jokhang Temple, Sera Monastery, Barkhor Street
Today, you and your group will explore Lhasa by visiting Jokhang Temple, a world cultural heritage site renowned for its brilliant architecture, culture, art, and history. After that, you will experience Tibetan Buddhism by witnessing the Monks' Debating in Sera Monastery. Finally, you can stroll through the famous Barkhor Street with locals and learn more about the daily kora life of Tibetans.

Located in the heart of Lhasa for over 1300 years, the Jokhang Temple is an important pilgrimage site for Buddhists from all over the world. Famed as the spiritual center of Tibet, it is said that the Jokhang Monastery was built for King Songtsen Gampo's two brides: Chinese Princess Wencheng and Nepalese Princess Bhrikuti. "Jokhang" means "House of Buddha", and it houses a life-size statue of the 12-year-old Sakyamuni, which is considered a treasure of the Buddhist world. This is why Buddhist pilgrims consider it the holiest destination. The Jakhong temple is also renowned for its beautiful architecture. You can admire the intricate carvings, colorful murals, ornate decorations, and details of the building, which is a masterpiece of Tibetan architecture. Time seems to stand still as you watch people pray in front of the temple during the day and night. (Please note that the visit order may be adjusted based on the reservation of your Jokhang Temple Ticket Reservation.)

In the afternoon, drive approximately 30km (50 minutes) to visit Sera Monastery, which is one of the three great Gelug university monasteries of Tibet. It offers the opportunity to experience Tibetan Buddhism up close. The highlight of Sera Monastery is watching the monks' debate, which takes place around 15:00-17:00 (except on Sundays). The debate is an interesting form of exchange, where one monk acts as the questioner, standing while the answerer or group of answerers sit. The standing monk asks questions and slaps his palms and stomps, each action having a special meaning, such as activating wisdom, and are not meant to be aggressive. You will also have the chance to attend prayer ceremonies, visit meditation halls, and learn about the monastic way of life. It is a must-visit destination to gain insight into the beliefs and practices of Tibetan Buddhism.

Afterward, head back to downtown Lhasa for a walk on busy Barkhor Street near the Jokhang Monastery, which was a place for Buddhists to do a kora (pilgrim circuit) in ancient times. Nowadays, it has become a thriving local market where you can drink a pot of yak butter tea, dress in Tibetan clothes for photos, and pick up some local Tibetan, Nepalese, and Indian handicrafts and souvenirs. Overnight stay in hotel.

It takes 365 steps from Potala gate to reach the Red Palace which is the highest palace in the world at an altitude of 3,700m. Through the principal halls, chapels, and shrines of past Dalai Lamas in the Red Palace, you will be astonished and touched by its remarkable paintings, gorgeous jeweled works, skilled carving, colorful ornamentation, and the mystery stories behind the treasures. Inside the Potala Palace you will meet lots of Tibetan pilgrims who come all the way from afar to this sacred site to pray as their life time destination. You can also ask your guide to share more information about Songtsen Gampo, the 33rd king of Tibet, who first build the Potala Palace in the 7th century for his marriage to Princess Wencheng of the Tang Dynasty. (Note: We may adjust the visit order due to the visiting time of your Potala Palace Ticket. All visitors must visit the Potala Palace with a tour group while staying inside for an hour. No photo inside.)
