    What to Expect
    At 08:00 our guide and driver will greet you at your hotel in Beijing city area. First we will take a walk on the Tiananmen Square, the heart and symbol of Beijing and  the largest city square in the world. The spacious square has been used for many public celebrations, ceremonies, and demonstrations for over a hundred years. Then you will pay a visit to the Forbidden City, one of the largest and most completely preserved palace complex built with wood. It functioned as the imperial palace in the Ming and Qing Dynasties (1368-1912). There were 24 emperors of the two dynasties lived in the Forbidden City.

    After lunch, we will drive about 45 minutes to visit the Badaling Great Wall, the most famous and the best-preserved section of the Chinese Ming Dynasty Great Wall. The mountain slope is very steep and the roads are tortuous, which makes it an important military stronghold in ancient time. The wall is like a strong dragon winding its way along the mountain ranges. If hiking is too much for you, cable car is available and optional. On the way back to city area, we will make a stop at Bird’s Nest and Water Cube to pay an outer visit and take some pictures. 

    After visiting, you will be escorted back to your hotel in Beijing city area at around 5:00 pm.

    Special note: Forbidden City is closed on every Monday, so please try to avoid visiting it on this day. If your travel day must be Monday, there are two options: First we will adjust the itinerary and replace it with another site. The second is that we can directly refund the ticket fee to you and cancel this spot based on your willingness.
