We're big fans of holidaying decadently and differently, and we love the latest additions to The Peninsula Beijing's Academy tours. If you're on a romantic holiday or honeymoon in China, we definitely recommend checking these tours out.
1. 2000 Years of Chinese Culture: An Aerial View of Beijing
Start this luxury tour with a romantic helicopter ride over the Great Wall and take in the stunning surrounds - of course it's overseen by a historian who'll give you the lesser-known secrets. Follow that up with a Champagne picnic at the Badaling Pass (amazingly gorgeous!). But you're not finished yet. You'll then head to Beijing's international art hub - 798 Art Zone - and spend some time wandering the galleries, studios, and design houses. After a delicious afternoon tea you will head back to the Peninsula Beijing for some romantic luxury spa treatments and a special six course meal with your sweetheart at Huang Ting restaurant.
If that's not your cup of tea there are still two more tours to choose from ...
Did you know that kites originated in China over 2000 years ago? On this Peninsula Academy tour you can learn the ancient craft in the comfort of a Peninsula suite. Once you have designed, decorated and made your kite, you will get to watch them fly at the Temple of Heaven Park. How many people can say they made authentic Chinese kites on their honeymoon or romantic getaway?
3. A Walk Through Beijing's Past: Rickshaw through a Hutong neighbourhood
Culture lovers this one is definitely for you. A historian will share with you the remnants of Beijing's traditional culture. After exploring the city's 'hutongs' (narrow alleyways) and discovering the places where life in Beijing is as it was many years ago, you will get to enjoy a romantic Peninsula picnic on the banks of the spectacular Shichahai Lakes.
