Overall Satisfaction:
"Temple of Heaven."
In Temple of Heaven, I thought that we enjoyed the surrounding park even more. There were many people doing exercises, some played Chinese chess. Others kicked “jianzi” from one to another by their feet or head. I highly recommended the Temple of Heaven for those families travelling with children. Parents could enjoy the rich history and children could take part in some interesting activities.

Overall Satisfaction:
"Lots of impressive buildings, also lots of people."
Forbidden City is our first attraction to do. Lots of impressive buildings, also lots of people. You know, it is CHINA. When we visit the temple of Heaven, I enjoy seeing the locals doing some excellent people watching entertainment, but the buildings are similar to other Chinese architectures.

Overall Satisfaction:
"Beijing, rich in History."
Beijing, an ancient capital, is rich in History. You can find stories in every streets or “Hutong” and legends behind every door of its palaces. According to our guides, the imperial city is not with 9999 rooms as we expected. However, the size is still fabulous. Then, the temple of Heaven and the Lama Temple are also awesome. It is wonderful trip for me since I am a fan of Chinese architecture.

Asked by Mr.Mark (Philippines)

Inquiry on the Invitation Letter
Good day Just want to ask, I already booked a flight to beijing, but there's a new rule now here in the embassy in the Philippines that in order for us to get a visa one option is to get an invitation letter from an authorize travel agency just like the example below a) Tourism Administration Bureau of Chinese Province, Autonomous Region or Municipality Directly under Central Government b) CITS Group Corp, CITS Head Office, CTS Head Office, CYTS etc. And so I check on the web and I found this site. Just want to ask if you are an authorized travel agency and do you issue an invitation letter Thanks
