    What to Expect
    After pickup from your central Beijing hotel, travel by private, air-conditioned vehicle to the Bai Jia Da Yuan restaurant.

    Situated in the Haidian district, this famous restaurant occupies a former Qing-dynasty royal palace, and forms one of Beijing’s protected cultural heritage sites. All around lie exquisite gardens of trees, ponds, exotic flowers, terraces, and pavilions.

    Be greeted by the restaurant’s costumed staff — all dressed as Qing-era courtiers, maids, concubines, and eunuchs — and step through the lantern-festooned courtyard into the impressive, regal dining room.

    Sit down to a sumptuous imperial dinner of dishes like dumplings, noodles, and flower salads, and as you dine, enjoy colorful live performances taken from Chinese operas, adding to the historical flavor.

    Afterward, enjoy a sightseeing tour of Beijing. See illuminated landmarks including the Bird’s Nest and Water Cube Olympic stadiums, Drum Tower and Bell Tower, and then stroll through the bar-filled, lakeside Houhai area, one of Beijing’s hottest nightspots. Admire the lake views and visit a bar to down a refreshing beer.

    Lastly, finish your experience with a hotel drop-off. Alternatively, choose to stay on in the area independently, with your guide giving you directions back to your hotel.
