Today, we will continue exploring highlights of Beijing, starting from Summer Palace. It is an enormous park with pavilions, temples, among lakes and surrounded by hills. It is a good idea for you to climb the hill or take a scroll in the gardens; it is a charming place to explore before taking a dragon styled boat tour on Kunming Lake.

After lunch we will drive to Tianjin, one of four municipalities in China. We will visit Garden of Serenity. Belonging to the mansion owned by the Last Emperor of Qing Dynasty, Puyi , its garden is a beautiful mix of Spanish and Japanese style architecture. After that, we will visit the Five Great Avenues, a British Settlement of Tianjin. Despite the known trials and hardship experienced, the place has still kept the original form and character showing Tianjin’s cosmopolitan city culture as experienced by the centennial generation.

One of today's highlights is a visit to the First Teaching Hospital at the Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. There is no better place to learn about traditional Chinese acupuncture techniques, stop inside the pharmacy and learn about the history of traditional Chinese medicine in the museum displays.

Afterwards, we will head to a small town, Yang Liu Qing for lunch and admire the Shi Family Grand Courtyard (admission not included), the former residence of Shi Yuanshi, fourth son of Shi Wan Cheng, one of eight great masters of Tianjin. Shi courtyard shows the unique Han architecture style popular during the Qing Dynasty.

For art lovers, our tour-guide can take you to visit one of the painting studios of Yangliuqing Folk Painting, where you can see how paintings are produced. Yangliuqing Folk Painting is one of the three famous New Year Pictures in China, which first appeared in Yangliuqing Town, west suburb of Tianjin in 17th century. They are special because they combine block print with colored hand drawing. This tradition was passed down from the Song (960-1279) and Yuan (1271-1368) dynasties.

We'll depart early this morning to Chengde.

Chengde Mountain Resort is China’s largest imperial garden and is twice the size of Beijing’s Summer Palace (admission not included). Its construction spanned nearly ninety years under the Emperor Kangxi in 1703 and lasted until the greater part of Emperor Qianlong’s reign.

The Imperial Summer Villa often saw use as a second capital as Kangxi set a precedent followed by Qianlong and a succession of other Qing emperors of spending much of the year at this unrivaled garden. In 1994, the Imperial Summer Villa became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Day 07
Beijing

Chengde - Beijing

After breakfast, the tour guide will escort you to the Putuo Zongcheng Temple (admission not included).

Part of the "Eight Outer Temples" in Chengde, it is also part of the World Heritage List along with the Chengde Mountain Resort we visited yesterday. The temple was modeled after the Potala Palace of Tibet, old sanctuary of the Dalai Lama which was built a century earlier.

The temple complex covers a surface area of some 220,000 square meters (2,4 million sq.ft.) making it one of the largest temples in China. Many of its halls and pavilions are adorned with copper and gold roof tiles adding to the splendor of this heavenly destination.
