1. From Beijing: Great Wall & Forbidden City Full-Day Trip
Discover the history of the Great Wall on this guided day trip from Beijing. Travel aboard an air-conditioned van. Visit Tiananmen Square and have an authentic Chinese lunch. Choose between a tour with or without a roundtrip cable car ride that allows you to get to the wall faster with stunning views. You'll be picked up from your hotel in Beijing in the morning and drive to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall. Your guide will provide you with lots of interesting information. At the Great Wall, you can either hike on your own or take a cable car to the highest point. Enjoy a traditional Chinese lunch at a restaurant near the Ming Tombs. After lunch, marvel at Tiananmen Square before continuing to the Forbidden City, the largest royal palace in the world and the last stop on this tour. Spend some time exploring this vast complex before being transferred back to your hotel. During the day, you'll have the opportunity to visit jade factory stores and get a foot massage in a Chinese medicine shop.
