Beijing Great Wall

Duration
4 Days
Prices From:
US$ 581

Beijing, the Imperial capital offers you not only the largest public square in the world, Tiananmen Square but also the amazing and unforgettable Great Wall of China plus much more.


Beijing is a treasure trove combining historical sites with contemporary urban life. Archaeological highlights stand side by side with modern architecture offering the visitor, the past, present and future all in one metropolis. 

Your starting point, Tian An Men Square, is the world’s largest public space. You will see in a 360 degree glance, Mao Tse Tung’s Mausoleum, the Great Hall of the People, China’s seat of government, the National Museum of China and the Forbidden City (also known as the ImperialPalace). You will then step into the Forbidden City immediately being transported back to the time of the great Dynasties who ruled here.

Next stop will be the Temple of Heaven where China’s Emperors once worshipped. You will marvel at the beauty of this architectural gem. You then head out to the opulent SummerPalace, a complex of pavillions and temples where the Emperors and their families went to escape the summer heat. The Marble Boat moored on the man-made lake here is something that is not only unusual but has a fascinating story involving the Last Empress of China!

Your next day in Beijing includes a visit to the world famous Great Wall of China nestled in the mountains approximately 80 kilomteres/50 miles north of the city.  No one on seeing this phenomenal landmark has ever been disappointed. Once stretching some 6300 kilometres/3900 miles across China, there are only a few remaining parts available for visitors to see how the wall looked some 2000 years ago. This particular section of the wall is well preserved. You can walk along it as far as time allows. Your final stop on the way back to Beijing is at the Ming Tombs where some of China’s past Emperors were buried.

Although your stay here will be well fulfilled, you might consider, if you have more time, staying longer in Beijing.

Full Day Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven including Lunch

Pick up from hotel, walk through the Tian’an Men Square and head to the gate of the Forbidden City, the abiding symbol of imperial China. Truly one of the great achievements of civilization, its construction employed hundreds of thousands of workers between 1406 and 1420. Marvel at its expansive architecture, magnificent imperial gardens, and many museums of Chinese antiquities and treasures. Head to the Summer Palace, which is the best-kept existing royal garden in Beijing, a complex of pavilions, temples, and galleries set among beautifully landscaped grounds, situated on Kunming Lake. After a Chinese lunch at local restaurant, explore the Temple of Heaven, one of the finest creations of the Ming dynasty. This stunning architecture realizes the eternal Chinese desire to incarnate heaven in material form and represents the most advanced principles of mechanics and geometry of the time. Late afternoon, transfer back to hotel.
