Today, we will visit Jingshang Park, which sits behind the Forbidden City and offers incredible views of this amazing palace complex. Then, we will cross into Beihai Park. Originally a summer palace, it became a winter palace for the emperors of 3 successive dynasties. Before lunch, we will take a rickshaw ride through the oldest residential part of Beijing to a family home in Hutong. In each home, an accompanying guide will help us learn about the family?s way of life. We will enjoy a local lunch here, courtesy of the host family, which will be followed by a traditional tea ceremony at the Bell Tower before the tour ends.
