A trip to the Famous Lama Temple and Hutong!

I am living in Shanghai for more about 1 year and want to visit Beijing for the third time. That time I booked this private day trip with online service reservation 3 days before the tour day. I could say the whole day trip was organized and really accommodating. My family and I, especially my mom really satisfied with the itinerary. She loves a visit to the Lama Temple and also to the hutong, an old courtyard complex in Beijing.

Beautiful Architecture of Lama Temple

Walked up entered to the temple, we could see large groups of local people lighting incense and bowing. The environment around was peaceful and relaxing. The temple is small compared to the other sight in Beijing, but I thought it can be said big enough for the temple size. We even could not explore all the temple area, that such a pity! But it does not matter, we did see old architecture of the temple and learned so many history about the sight and culture. Lama Temple is one of the few Tibetan style temples in Beijing. The Buddha in the final courtyard was about sixty feet tall and housed in a very grand building. The Buddha statue was also listed by Guinness Book of World Record as the biggest on its kind. Tour guide could be personally designed our short important visit to this building before continued our trip to Hutong.

Hutong Rickshaw Tour

When we were in Hutong, we could see different layout of Beijing. Not a modern one, but the old historic one. We did take a rickshaw exploring the local Beijing residences, primary school, many famous old buildings and others. It was my first time took the ride and that was very interesting. My mom was also very enjoyed it.

Besides Hutong and Lama Temple, with this tour we also could visit Beijing Zoo (for a panda visit) and Olympic Stadium (memorized 2008 Beijing Olympic). A worth it tour which brought us visited many interesting attractions inside the city. If you are visit Beijing for the second or third time, this tour is great and ideal to join. At last, I am glad to come back to the capital again in the near future, seriously. Thank you so much for the service from your travel agency. Very professional and worth doing!
