BEIJING, July 8 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- It's hot in Beijing. But while the sun is shining, it's still possible to have a cool tour with The China Guide ( http://www.thechinaguide.com ).

To begin, all our tours are door to door, so we pick you up and drop you off at your hotel. You don't work up a sweat just getting to the tour. All our vehicles have good strong air conditioning that can be turned up or down as per your wishes. Just let your guide know.

A bit of sun block and a good hat is all you'll need. We keep free bottled water in the vehicle to keep you well hydrated. At meals we offer unlimited standard drinks including Chinese tea, Coke, Sprite and local beer, plus of course more water.

When you get to the Great Wall we include the cable car ride up and down, no need to sweat there. We recommend Tiananmen and the Forbidden City first thing in the morning, so you can avoid the midday sun in these exposed sights.

During the heat of the day a Hutong tour is a cool option, whisked around in a shaded cycle rickshaw, visiting a courtyard home and perhaps a dumpling making or cooking lesson over the noon hour.

If you like museums then they are a great place to escape the summer heat. Try the Beijing Planning Museum or one of Beijing's many other museums including the Military, Train, Art or Dinosaur museum.

If you have kids, a cool dip in the water might be the go. Beijing has many water parks inside the city, including a beach with real sand inside Tuanjiehu Park. Kids also love the science museum, indoor playgrounds or a shady park play area.

So don't let the summer heat of Beijing or China put you off your trip. Have a chat with us and we can help you devise a cool travel plan.
