Explore the historic Forbidden City, then take a relaxing boat ride in Beihai Park. For a unique experience, take a sidecar motorcycle tour through the city's hutongs (traditional alleyways). Enjoy a romantic dinner with a view at one of Beijing's rooftop restaurants, like Yin on 12 at the New World Beijing Hotel. Visit the 798 Art District for a dose of contemporary Chinese art and culture. Take a cooking class together, learning to make traditional Chinese dishes. Enjoy a traditional tea ceremony at Laoshe Teahouse. For adventure seekers, try indoor skiing at Qiaobo Ice and Snow World. Explore the Summer Palace, taking a paddleboat ride on Kunming Lake. Attend an acrobatics show at Chaoyang Theatre. Take a day trip to the Ming Tombs, exploring China's imperial history. Enjoy a romantic evening stroll around Houhai Lake, known for its vibrant nightlife. Visit the Temple of Heaven early in the morning to watch locals practicing tai chi. End your day with a relaxing couples' spa treatment at one of Beijing's luxury hotels.
