After being picked up in your hotel at about
8:30am, we will head over to the political center of the country,
Tiananmen Square. The largest public square in the world, Tiananmen
Square is seen as China’s political center. Its grounds have seen some
turbulent moments, from the May 4th Movement of 1919 to the political
turmoil of 1989. The south of the square is marked by the Chairman Mao
Memorial Hall, while the center of the square is dominated by the
Monument to the People’s Heroes, an imposing 10-story granite obelisk.
To the east is the National Museum of China, and to the west is the
Great Hall of the People, home to China’s legislative bodies. The north
of the square is dominated by the Gate of Heavenly Peace, known for its
iconic portrait of Mao Zedong, and is the national emblem of China.
After walking across the street, we will enter what
is perhaps the greatest attraction in China, the Forbidden City. After
walking across the square we will enter the Forbidden City (known in
Chinese as Gu Gong), the largest surviving palace complex and the former
home of the emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasty. The Forbidden City is
one of the greatest attractions in the world. Built by the third Ming
emperor between 1406-1422, the Forbidden City served as the official
residence to the Emperor of China until the last emperor, Puyi, was
forced to evacuate in 1924. The Forbidden City is
divided into two
parts. The southern section, or the Outer Court was where the emperor
exercised his supreme power over the nation. The northern section, or
the Inner Court, was where he lived with his royal family. Consisting of
980 buildings and with 8,707 bays of rooms, the Forbidden City is the
best example of classical Chinese architecture in the world, and is a
wonder to behold.
Following our tour of the Forbidden City we will
stop for lunch. Afterwards, we’ll head to Tianjin Home Port Xingang.
Tianjin Port Xingang is about 200 km from Beijing and the drive will
take about 2-3 hours. We should arrive at Tianjin Home Port at around
4:00pm or your designated time. Your tour guide will escort you from the
beginning to the end. Your tour guide and driver will give you a hand in
carrying your big pieces of luggage to the Tianjin Home Port Xingang
Cruise Terminal Building from the parking lot. Bon Voyage!
