Take car to Baoding, a national cultural city with a history of 2,300 years. Visit Zhili Governor's Office Building which is the best preserved ancient government construction in China and the relics of the Military Academy in Qing Dynasty.
After lunch, visit the Western Imperial Tombs of Qing Dynasty 40KM east of Baoding. The Western Qing Tombs are a complex comprising some 14 tombs of the last Imperial Dynasty in China (1644-1911). The tombs contain the remains of emperors, empresses, princes and princesses, an emperors brother, and imperial concubines. Unlike previous dynasties, the Qing dynasty has two separate tomb complexes, namely eastern Qing tombs and western Qing tombs.

|Shijiazhuang - Beijing
Pick up from your hotel.
Visit Zhaozhou Bridge - the largest and earliest stone bridge in the world. Zhaozhou Bridge, located 40km (25 miles) southwest of Shijiazhuang, was built between 596-605AD by the stonemason Li Chun. The bridge is one of the oldest stone arch bridges in China. The bridge spans the Jiao River and is 50 meters (164ft) long and 10 meters (33ft) wide. The balustrades are beautifully decorated with dragons and other mythical creatures. Zhaozhou Bridge is remarkable more because it has survived the centuries rather than for its beauty.
After lunch visit the Longxing Temple in Zhengding. The temple is known as the No. 1 Temple to the South of Beijing, which is famous for the tallest copper Buddha in China and a great number of cultural relics and treasures.
