Chinese Golf Tour
The 1st day Beijing
Journey to Beijing, meet at the airport, transfer to the Hotel*, afternoon Hutong Tour.
(* with most preferable location) Please be suggested to get plenty of rest during the first day after your long journey. A Chinese foot message will be recommended to help you get out of the fatigue and sleep well.
A hutong is an ancient city alley or lane that was built during the Yuan (1206-1341), Ming (1368-1628) or Qing (1644-1908) dynasty according to the etiquette systems of the Zhou Dynasty. The lanes expand out from around the center of the city of Beijing, which is the Forbidden City, once the Royal Palace. The Hutongs, the small windy alleyways between the city’s main boulevards are delightful. Taking a stroll or rickshaw here, you will experience the more authentic parts of the city and really get a sense of old Beijing.

The 2nd day Beijing
Visit Imperial Palace, Summer Palace. Peking Opera or acrobatic performance will be attended in the evening.
Full day tour to Tian'anmen Square, the largest public square in the world, and the Palace Museum, known as the Forbidden City; the complex of imperial palaces are home to the emperors for over 500 years in the Ming and Qing dynasties. Some of the grand halls have been used as museums for fine collections of Chinese treasures. The Temple of Heaven, where the Ming and Qing emperors prayed for good harvest, is the largest temple complex remaining in China today. And the Summer Palace a former summer resort for the royal family. The area became known as the Summer Palace because the entire court of Qing Dynasty stayed there in the summer to avoid the Beijing heat. The palaces and other structures eventually fell into ruins due to neglect. In 1888, Empress Dowager Ci Xi (or Tzu His) had it rebuilt with large sums of money earmarked for expanding the Chinese navy which gives the marble boat constructed during her reign, now sitting on the edge of the lake, certain ironic significance. The Summer Palace was seriously damaged once again during the Boxer Rebellion in 1900 and was restored in 1903. Three-quarters of the 660 acres that make up the area is occupied by Lake Kunming, with the remaining quarter occupied by Longevity Hill and the foreshores.

The 3rd day Beijing
At about 09:00 after a hotel breakfast, full day excursion to the Great Wall - the landmark of China. It is one of the most amazing feats of manmade construction on earth visible from outer space.
After lunch, Golfing. A Special flavor dinner - Beijing roasted duck in the evening.
The world–renowned Great Wall, a symbol of ancient Chinese civilization, has stood grandly in the land of China for more than 2,000 years. Stretching from the coast at Bohai Bay in the east and terminating at Jiayu Pass in the west, it serpentines among lofty mountains for 12,700 li, or 6,350 kilometers, hence its Chinese name Wanlichangcheng (ten-thousand-li-long-wall)
A visit to The Commune by the Great Wall seems a best choice for the guests for this morning. The project has won international recognitions. You will be led to the wild Great Wall just behind the Commune after your visit in the Commune. The wild Great Wall tour should be a surprise for you because it is supposed to be the only non-commercial and least crowded section of the Great Wall around Beijing.
The Commune by the Great Wall is a private collection of contemporary architecture designed by 12 outstanding Asian architects. It was exhibited at La Biennale di Venezia in 2002 winning a special prize. Ms Zhang Xin, the mastermind and investor for the project, was recognized for her “bold personal initiative, which emphasizes the role of 12 Asian architects in building privately-owned houses in a definitively contemporary manner.” The Center Pompidou, Paris now houses the exhibited model, made of wood and cardboard, as its first permanent collection from China.

The Temple of Heaven, the largest group of temple buildings in China, was constructed in southeast Beijing in 1420. It is known for its striking architectural beauty. There the emperors of the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties held ceremonies to worship heaven. In winter, they offered sacrifices at the Circular Mound Altar and in spring, they worshipped at the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest.A circular structure with deep blue glazed tiles used to house the memorial tablets of the Supreme Ruler of Heaven, namely Imperial Vault of Heaven, is quite near by. A low wall, known as the Echo Wall, circles the vault. The wall produces a magical acoustic effect – standing close to the wall, one’s whisper can be heard by someone a distance away.

Confucius, otherwise known as Kongqiu, or Kong zhongni, was born in 551 before Christ at the Nishan Mountain, Qufu City, Shandong. A great thinker and educator, Confucius established what was to become one of the three major religion-philosophies that have been of far-reaching significance in the forming of Chinese tradition for over 2,000 years, outside China known as Confucianism, the other two being Taoism and Buddhism. The effect of his philosophy has also been found in East Asia and Southeast Asia as well. More than 1,100 stone tablets are housed in Confucius’ Temple, testifying the canonizing, worshiping, and temple renovation by emperors since Han Dynasty as well as poems dedicated to Confucius. These tablets are of great value in the study of the politics, economy and art of medieval China.

The 8th day Hangzhou
Boating on the West Lake, Lingyin Temple. Golfing in the afternoon.
So much for the charms of the West Lake as a whole. In so far as individual scenes and sights are concerned, the mere mention of the West Lake never fails to call to mind the " Ten Scenes of the West Lake", The "Ten Scenes of the West lake" have pinpointed the charms of the West lake in different places, different seasons and different times of the year. In terms of seasonal beauty, the lake is represented by the " Spring Descending upon the Su Dyke" , the " Wind-blown Lotus Flowers of Quyuan Garden", the " Autumn Moon on the Calm Lake", and the " Snow on the Broken Bridge". The other six scenes serve to show the salient features of the West Lake:" Orioles Singing in the Willows", " Viewing Fish in Huangong Pond", "Three Pools Mirroring the Moon", " Sunset beyond the Leifeng Pagoda", Evening Bell Tools on the Nanping Mountain", and " Twin Peaks Soaring through the Clouds". The only difference is that the West Lake of today has become even more enchanting than it was during the Southern Song or Qing dynasty. All but one of " Ten Scenes of the West Lake" have been expanded and their beauty enriched considerably.
