Arrive in Beijing and make your way to your accommodation in your preorganised transfer. Once you’ve settled in head over to the Summer Palace, the spot for relaxation since 1115BC. We suggest you head up to the highest peak for the best view of the Beijing skyline. In the evening treat your students to a traditional Chinese tea ceremony, a relaxing way to end to your first day
