Day 3: Temple of Heaven and the Forbidden City

In the morning we took the tour bus to the Temple of Heaven, which was in a huge public park. We got an opportunity to try some local Chinese games and exercises before heading off to view the Temple of Heaven itself.

After that, we went on a Pedi cab Hutong tour which ended in lunch in a traditional Hutong made by the family that lived there. Once done with lunch, we went to the Fordbidden City, and learned from our tour guide all about the history of it in Chinese. Our last activity was visiting a traditional Chinese tea house. We watched a traditional tea ceremony, and got to taste Jasmine, Fruit, Oolong, and Pu’er tea. To end our day, we boarded the overnight train to Xian.
