Here is your unique chance to visit 3 of the most iconic places in China in a single day. You will start the tour with one of the places that the Chinese people hold in high esteem: Tiananmen square. It is a royal square, related to the Chinese revolution, just outside of another iconic place, the Forbidden City, which is the next step on the tour.

Formerly known as the Imperial Palace, the Forbidden City is considered as the world's five major palaces as well as China's largest ancient building and was listed by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage in 1987. You will get a chance to visit it before heading to a Chinese restaurant for lunch.
