Pick up from the hotel. Transfer to the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. The Temple of Heaven is situated in the southern part of Beijing city. The glazed-title roofs of the temples are deep blue and the platforms constructed of slabs of white marble. Each of the three platforms consists of three tiers, making a total of nine tiers-nine in Chinese cosmology symbolizing heaven. As a matter of fact, the number and layout of every single slab used in the platforms is determined according to cosmological principle.
You will also have chance to take a look at Chinese time-honored Silk artworks for 45 minutes. It's acknowledged that silk is brought out in China as one of the finest fabrics for clothing, it has an appearance and feeling of wealthiness that no more other materials could catch.
After lunch, transfer to Beijing Hutong area. Visit the Beijing Old Hutongs. Hutongs are actually the narrow streets and alleys. The word "Hutong" is a Mongolian word, which means the "water well". Now the word "Hutong" is used to refer to the neighbourhoods. With the fast development of the city, many hutong have been demolished to make way for building high rises. Without these hutong, the memory of the traditional life and culture in Beijing will disappear.
Last, transfer you back to the hotel.
