Great Wall of China at Badaling and Ming Tombs Day Tour from Beijing

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Depart from your Beijing hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and admire the rural scenery as you escape bustling Beijing. Stop first at the Great Wall of China, an iconic landmark illustrating the innovation of ancient Chinese engineering. Venture to the Badaling section, one of the best-preserved parts of the structure, and listen as your guide provides an engaging narrative about the attraction’s history. 

    Climb either the north or south face of the wall to absorb panoramic vistas of the surrounding scenery. Stroll the fortification to discover the watchtowers and natural havens that pepper the UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

    After thorough exploration of the ancient wonder, head to the sacred Ming tombs to discover the burial grounds of ancient Ming emperors. Marvel at three of the excavated tombs and hear of the extravagant lives led by the mausoleum’s inhabitants. Refuel with an authentic Chinese-style lunch then browse the bespoke shops of the Longdi Jade Factory for special souvenirs. 

    Relax during the journey back to Beijing by comfortable coach and bid your guide farewell at your hotel.

    Take sensible shoes, some water and energy. We arrived at 8am before the hordes of people. It was about an hours drive from Beijing. The views are wonderful

    Jackie seems pleasant enough. His accent was very thick, and he spoke so fast it was hard to understand him. Apparently I was not the only one that couldn't understand much of what he said. When others would ask a question about something he had...More
