The Diamond Princess has assisted disembarkation starting about 07:30am with the last stragglers coming off around 09:00am. So you will leave your ship at a prearranged time. The main terminal consists of the custom house, luggage area and waiting halls. Your cruise ship will dock just by the main building.

 

Taking your handbags, you will go through customs. Then you go to claim your luggage at the check luggage area. If you have a lot of luggage and cannot carry or roll them on your own, you may ask the port terminal staff for help.

 

With the help of our representative or driver, you will be escorted to your waiting car or van, which will be outside the terminal. Tianjin Port Xingang is about 200 km from Beijing and the drive will take about 2-3 hours. Following lunch we will head to visit the Drum Tower. The bell and drum were originally used as musical instruments in China. Afterward, however, they were used for telling time. As early as in the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220), there was 'a morning bell and a dusk drum'. Telling the time by bell and drum played an important role in helping people live and work regularly when there was no other means to keep track of the time. As a result, bell and drum towers became public architectures, and were widely constructed in almost every city throughout the country since the Han Dynasty. In the history of their construction, the bell and drum towers of Beijing are the largest and highest. Their layout is unique, in that they were placed fore-and-aft, not as the traditional sense of standing right-and-left horizontally. We will walk around the towers, and we will go up into the Drum Tower, which will give you a great birdís-eye view of the city.

 

Next, we will arrive at the Shichahai lake area. Shichahai is a famous scenic area that includes three lakes (Qian Hai, meaning Front Sea; Hou Hai, meaning Back Sea and Xi Hai, meaning Western Sea), surrounding places of historic interest and scenic beauty, and remnants of old-style Beijing residences, Hutong and courtyards. Shichahai is always a good place for local Beijingers' recreational life, and in the last 200 years, many governmental officers, celebrities, monks and nuns chose to build mansions, temples and nunneries in Shichahai. Thus, Shichahai's attraction lies not only in its natural beauty, but also in the historical value of its architecture. The lakeshore is packed with young people chatting, drinking and generally relaxing as wood pigeons coo overhead. In recent years it has become famous for nightlife because it is home to several popular restaurants, bars, and cafes. We will take a leisurely stroll along the lake, where we will gradually come across Yandai Xiejie Street.

 

Weíll then head to the northern area of the city, in order to go to the Olympic Green. The Olympic Green was the center of the event that captivated the world for two weeks in August of 2008, and is where a majority of the Olympic events took place. The highlights that you will see today include the Birdís Nest (officially known as the Beijing National stadium) and the Water Cube (the Beijing National Aquatics Center). The stadium gets its nickname from its outward design, which originated from the study of Chinese ceramics, implementing steel beams in order to hide supports for the retractable roof, thus giving the stadium the appearance of a "Bird's nest". The Birdís Nest hosted the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, athletic events, and football final of the 2008 Summer Olympics, from 8 August to 24 August 2008. Since the Olympicís end, the Birdís Nest has been used to host events ranging from opera to a ski park.

 

Following your tour of the Olympic stadiums you will be taken to your hotel in Beijing.
