#Talk about tours in Beijing,  most of the visitors will think about the Great Wall and Forbidden City. Well, Beijing is more than that:
Lama Temple (Yonghegong) - It is the largest Lama temple out of tibetan area with rich history. And in the streets around the temple, you could visit some tibetan stores. If you are lucky enough, you will see tibetan people dancing in front of their store.

Shichahai - There are several Hutong by rickshaw packages, the best one we recommend is Shichahai. visiting Hutong is to close local beijing life in these old streets. Taking pictures here is good, and you could enjoy night life here after the rickshaw.

Beijing 798 Art Zone - It is a new representative culture center in Beijing. It is used to be a factory short named 798, after the factory was moved, the workshop were rent by some young artist & students bcause of the low rent and large area. And then, more and more artist moved their studio here for convenient communication & co-working. Their studios extend to the area around the old factory and now become a Art Zone. It is an interesting area very different from traditional imperial palace & garden.

#Shanghai, a business center in China, thousands of hundreds of business people come to Shanghai for commerce. When we talk about tours to Shanghai, most of the people could say nothing. Even a water town near Shanghai is more popular to tourists. Here is the places you should not miss if you visit Shanghai:
Shanghai Museum - It is located in the really downtown Shanghai, to the south of Shanghai People's Square. It has more than 120,000 treasures, and its features are  bronzes, ceramics, calligraphy & painting, especially ceramics.

ERA Intersection of Time - It is a acrobatic  show. There are many shows in Shanghai, we recommend this one.
