We commence this educational tour in Beijing with a full day at the Forbidden City to study the key features of the Feng Shui of this magnificent complex. In 2015, new areas of the complex were opened to the public, including the residences of the Dowager and the Emperor’s wives.
We will visit the Ancient Observatory to see instruments of astronomy from the old days, when astronomy and astrology were not separate studies, but one in the same thing. Also, we visit such incredible buildings as the CCTV Building, the Water Cube and the Bird’s Nest to discuss their Feng Shui.
You will have exclusive access to small hutongs to visit inside local people’s homes and see how they live, now and in the past in the country’s capital. The Prince Gong’s Mansion is a must-see for Feng Shui visitors to Beijing.
While here, you will have a taste of authentic Peking Duck in Quan Ju De, the most famous restaurant in Beijing for this dish.
Travelling out of Beijing we will naturally want to see the Great Wall! There are various locations to view the wall, but we will go to a lesser-known and less touristy location. Xian and the Terracotta Warriors are also on our bucket list. We will stay a few days and spend a whole day simply studying in-depth the Feng Shui of the tomb location of Qin Shi Huangdi, the first emperor of China.
Travelling into the countryside we will make our way to the source of ancient Chinese civilisation, the Yellow River, China’s mother river. We will visit Mount Tai, home of the famous Feng Shan Kun ceremony, the tribute to heaven and earth, which has been held for over 2000 years.
