Draft Beijing Itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are visiting Beijing as part of our Spring Break trip this year. There are 6 of us. Me, my DH, my FIL and our three sons (10,11,11). Everyone but me speaks Mandarin. My husband, FIL and I have all visited Beijing a number of times in the past. It our sons' first trip. They eat pretty much anything and so I welcome any restaurant suggestions. They LOVE dumplings, hot pot, noodles, seafood, etc. We are very comfortable taking public transportation. Thank you, in advance, for any feedback.

Day 1 - arrive late at night. Just go straight to our Hutong hotel in the Dongcheng District.

Day 2 - easy day. The adults will be experiencing jet lag although history would indicate the boys will not. Walk around hutung, maybe visit Black Lakes area and/or Lama Temple. Olympic sites at night? Boys travel with basketballs and gloves/baseballs so find a park or court where they can burn off some energy. Dinner along Wangfujing street?

Day 3 - have hired a driver to take us to Mutianyu this day. Not sure what to do afterwards. Maybe 798? Summer Palace (worry this is too much the same for the boys with the Forbidden CIty and they won't appreciate it). DaDong for dinner? Olympic sites this night?

Day 4 - Jingshang Park, TS/Mao Mausoleum, Forbidden City day. Dinner in Legion Quarter? Emperor Bar? One idea is to send boys back to hotel with their grandfather and my DH and I go out somewhere fun for dinner like Capital M.

Day 5 - Day before long and tiring so more low-key today also have overnight train to Xi'an this night so need to get to station around dinner time.. Drum and Bell Tower? Nanluoguxiang? Antiques/furniture market?
