See two of China’s most popular destinations, the World Heritage-listed Great Wall of China and the Ming Tombs, on one unforgettable guided day trip from Beijing. You’ll visit the Badaling section of the Great Wall, one of the best-preserved parts of this colossal structure, and explore the Chang Ling Tomb, the largest of the excavated Ming emperor burial sites. Lunch and round-trip hotel transport are included, with expert commentary from a knowledgeable guide throughout your full-day tour.
After pickup in the morning from your hotel, hop aboard a comfortable coach and head north out of bustling Beijing to two popular area attractions. The first stop on your full-day sightseeing tour is the Great Wall of China, the greatest symbol of ancient Chinese engineering and one of the world’s most famous structures. The Badaling section is a prime, preserved example of this colossal monument, which became a strategic military location during the Warring States period (476-221 BC), when many incomplete parts of the wall were built. Here at the Badaling section, you have the opportunity to climb either the north or south face of the Great Wall, enjoying sweeping views of the surrounding landscape.
