After meeting the pandas, you'll head to a traditional pearl shop where you'll learn all about these precious gems and how the locals make beautiful handicrafts from them.

Continuing your guided tour, you'll have a break to renew energy with a snack, before being taken to your next stop: the Summer Palace, which is considered to be one of China's most beautiful imperial gardens. You'll get to explore the palace's most important features, including the spectacular Tower of Buddhist Incense, the Garden of Virtue and Harmony and the Garden of Harmonious Pleasures amongst much more. You'll soon realise why this magnificent complex is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as you admire its architecture and learn all about its history as the summer residence of the Qing dynasty.

Last but by no means least, you'll visit the Lama Temple, otherwise known as the Yonghe Temple. This sacred sanctuary is one of the most important Buddhist temples outside of Tibet, and its beauty and history with leave you speechless.
