Then we will visit Forbidden City. Known as the Palace Museum, the Forbidden City is a treasure house of Chinese cultural and historical relics. The palace was the exclusive domain of the imperial court for almost 500 years. As one of the World Cultural Relics, the palace consists of 90 palaces and courtyards, 980 buildings and 8,704 rooms.
And Then we visit National theatre. The National Theatre, also called the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA), is located in the west of Tian'anmen square. The exterior of the theater is a titanium accented glass dome, which is surrounded by a man-made lake, just like an egg floating on water. The National Theatre is an important culture facility to hold various performances and exhibitions.
Have lunch in nice local restaurant.
Dive to visit Juyongguan Great Wall. The Great Wall was built and maintained between the 7th century BC and 17th century BC. It was originally built to protect the empire from northern invaders. The Great Wall stretches through the countryside over deserts, hills and plains for 8,851.8 meters. The Juyongguan Great Wall was built during the Ming Dynasty(1368-1644). Situated in a beautiful valley, Juyongguan was once listed as one of the eight best sceneries in Beijing. Buddhist carvings on a stone platform and the "cloud terrace" in the middle of the pass also worth seeing.
