'Discover Beijing' includes three nights' accommodation for two, daily breakfast, a complimentary Chinese tea ceremony, guided excursions to the Summer Palace, Forbidden City, Lama Temple and a traditional hutong, and a 90-minute heated Gemstone Body Treatment.
• The 290-hectare Summer Palace is immediately adjacent to the resort. Built in 1750, it long served the Qing Dynasty as an imperial retreat during the hot summer months, and encompasses the contemplative Kunming Lake as well as a variety of palaces and gardens.
• The home of emperors since the Ming Dynasty, the Forbidden City is the physical core and historical heart of old Beijing.
• Lama Temple is one of the largest and most important Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in the world. The architecture and artworks of the temple combine Han Chinese and Tibetan styles.
• Beijing's hutongs are maze-like lanes between courtyard residences built in accordance with the principles of feng shui. They surround the Forbidden City and were designed in part to protect it.
