Beijing is a reflection of China, its history steeped in the momentum of the nation from the very moment of its founding. This tour starts at Tian'anmen Square with its plentitude of monuments testifying to the communist, and more specifically, Mao's influence on China's modern history. From there you will proceed to the Forbidden City, constructed during the reign of Emperor Yong Le in the Ming dynasty. It has been the seat of power of the empire for centuries and has seen countless battles and reconstructions, architecture seen today dates from the 1700's.
