    About the places we will visit:

    The Forbidden City

    The Forbidden City is a palace complex in central Beijing, China. The former Chinese imperial palace from the Ming dynasty to the end of the Qing dynasty—the years 1420 to 1912, it now houses the Palace Museum. The Dragon Throne is the term used to identify the throne of the Emperor of China. As the dragon was the emblem of divine imperial power, the throne of the Emperor, who was considered a living god, was known as the Dragon Throne.

    The Sacred Way

    The Sacred Way of Beijing Ming Tombs measures about four miles long and is led to Changling Mausoleum. As the best preserved and most complete one in China, Divine Road, starting from a stone archway, is the first scenic sight of the Ming Tomb, and is lined with 12 human stone statues and 24 animal figures.

    Lingyin Temple

    The Lingyin Temple is one of the oldest and most significant ancient Buddhist temple of China. As the largest of several temples in Hangzhou’s Wulin Mountains, with its the long history and charming scenery, Lingyin Temple attracts thousands of visitors and Buddhist faithful every day.

    Wuyi Water Town

    Surrounded by rivers, lakes and canals, three parts of China comprise a “golden triangle” of historical towns that mostly run on the water. Shanghai, Suzhou and Hangzhou form this pyramid-shaped area known as the “Venice of the East,” filled with thousands of years of history and cities built around complex canal systems.

    Six Harmonies Pagoda

    Six Harmonies Pagoda is a representative ancient pavilion-style tower in China, located on Yuelun Mountain to the south of the West Lake and facing Qiantang River. It is one of the three renowned pagodas in Hangzhou, together with another two around the West Lake, Baochu Pagoda and Leifeng Pagoda.

    Tianzifang

    Tianzifang is an artsy area housing bars, cafes, crafts shops, design studios, galleries and boutiques in the Old French Quarter. The area retains an “organic and original” feel because the area hasn’t been markedly reconstructed in recent years. Old buildings, alleys and streets mix with later Chinese additions piled on.
