Overview

Begin at the Beijing Confucius Temple, a quiet complex filled with Confucian symbolism. You'll learn about Confucius, his students, and his philosophies. Next, take a walk to a gentrified neighborhood of Beijing and look at the classical homes where feng shui (an ancient Chinese system of aesthetics) directs the placement of buildings and fosters social interaction. On your neighborhood walk, meet a group of Daoist Masters who also serve as fortune tellers. Stop for a cup of tea or visit a calligraphy shop to learn about the significance of this art to Chinese culture.

Next, visit the Lama Temple, the most renowned Tibetan Buddhist temple outside of Tibet. Here, your expert docent will tell you about the arrival of Buddhism in China and its role in religious life over the past two millennia. Learn about the main principles of Buddhism and how it has intertwined with the other major Chinese religions.

Finish your walking tour at the Ming Dynasty-constructed Altar of the Earth. See elderly Beijing people practice tai chi in the morning and discover the primary concept of chi (energy of life) in Daoism.

This tour will give you a thorough understanding of the history and influence of Confucianism, Buddhism and Daoism on China and its people.
