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!

Amazing Tour with Great Service!

Everything was so organized from the beginning till the end. We love our guides during the tour who were so accommodating, informative and friendly too. We had a nice tour that I will never forget. The tour is also include in everything we need during our 3 days in the capital include hotel, lunch, some breakfast at the hotel, tour guides, driver etc. The itinerary of the tour was also well organized. Overall, I could say the tour gave us everything that we were expected before and even more. Thank you for that. Without your help, we could not explore Beijing as fast as we did.

Mutianyu Great Wall Summer View

Among many outstanding attractions around Beijing include Great Wall, Summer Palace, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven etc, I think I love Great Wall best. I did not exactly know why, but Great Wall was just amazed me more than my expectation before arrived at Beijing. Mutianyu Great Wall was surrounded by stunning large vegetation and mountainous area. Everything was so nature and fresh. I love the environment and might because it located outside from the city. I thought that we really had a real excursion to see the nature, far from the crowded city back to the history of China.

Inner Appearance of Watchtower

Step by step we climbed the Wall, little bit exhausted but all the effort was worth it! I could tell everyone that Mutianyu was stunning, historic and huge! On that day, the weather was also so cooperated, it was bright, little bit hot and that was okay! Fortunately, we already prepared ourselves to really climb the Wall, in fact it really seems like exercising to hike it. We wore comfortable shoes and clothes, prepared for the day so we can reach as far as we can.

We joked around, took lots of interesting photos since the scenery was just breathtaking, had some rest if felt tired, everything was so memorable and interesting. After visited the Wall, now I could say why the Wall was so famous and popular around the world, the reason that everyone should personally find with visiting it. If I have the chance to visit Beijing again next time, I will come back to the Great Wall again for sure. At last, we are happy that we spent every cent of money worth it! Thank you for everything!

3 Days Explored Famous Beijing Attractions

If you want a private and complete tour in Beijing then I should recommend this tour. I got the trip from a local tour agency in Beijing online. Our guide picked us up right in front of our hotel every day when the tour begins. In 3 days, we got 3 different guides but all of them were so informative and very nice.

Awesome Buildings in Forbidden City

We did visit many remarkable attractions around the city include Great Wall, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Hutong, Beijing Zoo etc. My favorites are Great Wall and Forbidden City. Both places are so famous with its history even in my home country. Once everyone come to China, it is a must visit those two places. Why I choose Forbidden City? Personally, I felt deeper about the palace when step inside it. The complex of the palace was really huge with hundred of pavilions, halls, rooms. Everything was so identical with royal family. The architecture, color, layout and structures of the palace was like the originally palace without reparation or even renovation.

The Demarcation of Inner Court and Outer Court

We did explore the Outer Palace first and after that entered to the Inner Palace. Outer Palace was used as the place where emperors ruled the country and did his administrative things. And the Inner Palace was the palace where emperor and his family live. At last, we finally could see the Imperial Garden of this ancient palace. There had lots of ancient tress and rare Chinese plants. It was used as the place where emperor had rest and enjoy his time admire the nature. For about 2 hours explored several important areas inside include the Exhibition of Treasures, after that continued our journey to Summer Palace, another highlight of the tour. A lot of impressive places we did visit, lots of things we did know, a lot of new experience we did get.

If you are looking for the ideal tour for your family within 3 days then this tour could be the best! The itinerary and attractions were my favorite. Everything well organized from the beginning of the tour till the end. Worth for every cent that I spent and I got the best moment of my time in Beijing. Thank you for everything, I am very glad for joining the tour.
