What to Expect
Your English speaking guide and private car will pick you up in your hotel's lobby at 7:30am, then heading to the Shilinxia Scenic area.The trip will take about 2 hours. On the way you will enjoy beautiful countryside and farmland view.

Upon arrival at the Shilinxia Scenic area, spend 2-3 hours of exploring at the Scenic area and enjoy yourself without feeling like you are being rushed from one point to another. Take the cable car up to the mountain to overlook the amazing views, and hike about another 30 minutes to 1 hour to go up to the glass sightseeing platform.

The glass sightseeing platform, billed as “Flying Disk/UFO”, opened to the public on April 30, 2016. The glass platform hangs 32.8 metres out from the cliff, 11 meters longer than the Grand Canyon Skywalk inside the Grand Canyon National Park in the United States.

It is claimed to be the largest sightseeing platform in the world.The sightseeing platform is constructed with titanium alloys, which are widely utilized in aeronautical and space fields, but first time for daily life until today in China.The purpose of using titanium alloys to build this platform is to ensure the safety of all the visitors on the platform.

After your adventure, you will stop at a local restaurant for a delicious Chinese lunch. 

Then relax on the way back to Beijing, you will visit 798 art district. Located in the Dashanzi area, to the northeast of central Beijing, 798 Arts Zone is the site of state-owned factories in 1950s including Factory 798, originally produced electronics. Attracted by the Bauhaus Style buildings and convenient transportation in this tranquil area, artists began to gather to re-make the factory spaces, gradually developing them into galleries, art centers, artists' studios, design companies, restaurants, and bars. Accompanied by your friendly tour guide, you will walk around this huge area, and feast your eyes on the studios and design companies.
