Located in the center of Beijing City is Tian’anmen Square, where you can visit Tian’anmen Tower, Monument to the People’s Heroes, Great Hall of the People, Mao Zedong Memorial Hall and see the national flag raising ceremony.

   


Situated at the heart of Beijing, the Forbidden City is approached through Tian’anmen Gate. It is a location endowed with cosmic significance by ancient China‘s astronomers. The Forbidden City was built from 1406 to 1420 by the third Ming emperor Yongle, who upon usurping the throne, determined to move his capital north from Nanjing to Beijing. In 1911 the Qing dynasty fell to the republican revolutionaries. The last emperor, Puyi, continued to live in the palace after his abdication until he was expelled in 1924. Twenty-four emperors lived and ruled from this palace during this 500-year span.
   


A Hutong is a unique form of community that exists only in China. The Hutong, built during the Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasties, is the narrow network of lanes created by closely built quadrangular homes. The houses and courtyards, hidden away and boxed, are closed off with wooden gates with carved characters intended to bring good fortune to the house owner. Highlights include rickshaw ride, family visit and drum tower. Taking a rickshaw tour through the Hutong will give you the opportunity to experience the different aspects of the past and the present of Beijing city, the society and the daily life.
