Summer Palace | Badaling Great Wall

Discover the legacy of China's great emperors! First visit the Great Wall of China at Badaling, where watchtowers and wall snake across wooded hillsides creating a colorful backdrop for this incredible feat of human engineering. Then in the afternoon, pay a visit to the Summer Palace, the spectacular garden retreat for China's imperial court for more than 800 years.

Details

7:00-7:30 a.m. Beijing downtown hotel pickup

10:00 a.m. Summer Palace (Yíhé Yuán, 颐和园) (about 1 hour)

An excellent expression of China's imperial spirit, the Summer Palace should be explored at leisure, even if it means setting aside a full day just to wander around soaking up the atmosphere. That said, if you're short on time, even a few hours exploring the halls, courtyards, pavilions, temples and wooded hillsides of this opulent lakeside retreat should prove a highlight of your Beijing visit.

12:00 p.m. Lunch at a local restaurant

2:30 p.m. Great Wall of China at Badaling (Bādálǐng Chángchéng, 八达岭长城) (about 2 hours)

Only a 70 km (44 mi) drive from Beijing, Badaling is the most visited section of the Great Wall. Constructed during the Ming Dynasty, Badaling underwent extensive reconstruction during the 1950s and 1980s and now features amenities that invading barbarians would certainly kill for, from cable car rides to snack stands, caged bears, souvenir shops and restaurants, not to mention air-conditioned tour buses traveling down the expressway which links this length of wall to the capital.

6:00 p.m. Return to hotel

* Please note: 2 shopping stops (Chinese traditional medcine & jade) will be arranged during the trip, about 45 minutes each.
