Beijing & Xi'an

Breaking News…Time Travel is Real! Or at least it is on this 4-day vacation to Beijing. Let Monograms take you on a journey through time, where you can walk along fortresses built by ancient dynasties in the morning, and by afternoon, stroll through this bustling city, viewing some of the most modern and innovative architecture in the world. Your Monograms adventure includes hotel accommodations, private guided sightseeing, breakfast daily, and the services of a Local Host®—someone who is there for you to answer questions, offer recommendations, and help make your vacation memorable.

Your first impression of Beijing will be utter amazement. This vibrant hub was the stage for China’s imperial history for a thousand years—and vestiges of its ancient culture are evident around every corner. We set you up with private guided sightseeing that shows off Tian’anmen Square, the largest public square in the world; the Forbidden City’s impressive Imperial Palace, once home to China’s great emperors and off limits to the public for 500 years; and, of course, the Great Wall of China. Dating back to the 7th century BC, the mighty fortification runs from east to west for more than 4,000 miles, and was built to protect China from marauding nomadic tribes. Stroll along the wall for stunning panoramic views and take what are sure to be some unforgettable photos. You’ll definitely have worked up an appetite, and we’ve got lunch lined up at a local restaurant so you can recharge and relax over a tasty meal of traditional Chinese cuisine.

With Monograms, we give you plenty of free time to explore on your own, and there are so many ways to experience Beijing like an insider. Rise early in the mornings if you like to join the locals for tai chi in a public park…take in a performance of the world-renowned Peking Opera…or enjoy a delectable Peking duck dinner. Maybe take an excursion through the city’s ancient hutongs (alleyways)…visit the exquisite Temple of Heaven…or haggle for souvenirs at local markets. Your Local Host can help you make the most of your time.

Between the private sightseeing we’ve included and the hotels we have booked, the only thing left for you to do is get out there and enjoy. With the time and hassles saved and the comfort of knowing you’ll have a Local Host with you throughout the vacation, you’ve got yourself a once-in-a-lifetime vacation!
