Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, and Mutianyu Great Wall Tour
From US$45.00
Overview

If you’d like to make the most of limited time in Beijing—and avoid the challenges of negotiating transport to the Great Wall—discover China’s history and culture on this convenient tour. Cover three key Beijing-area landmarks—Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall at Mutianyu—as well as a jade factory and traditional medicine stores. Tour includes lunch.

What to Expect

After pickup from your hotel, visit Tiananmen Square and admire structures like the National Museum of China and the Maozhuxi Jiniantang Chairman Mao Memorial Hall. Next, explore the UNESCO-listed Forbidden City, the former imperial palace with over 600 years of history.

Learn about the meaning of jade in Chinese culture on a short visit to a jade carving factory before sitting down to enjoy a traditional Chinese lunch. Sated, drive out to the UNESCO-listed Great Wall at Mutianyu, considered more beautiful and less busy than the Great Wall at Badaling.

On your return to Beijing, discover Chinese traditional medicine culture before your coach drops you back at your hotel.
