Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at the lobby of your hotel in Beijing city centre. Begin your trip with a visit to the Great Wall. Visitors to Beijing love the Great Wall, and for a good reason: it is one of the wonders of the world. Did you know that the Great Wall is the longest piece of architecture in the world, stretching from Chinas east coast to Chinas west desert? As you stand on the top tower and look at the wall snaking its way across the tops of the mountains, its incredible to imagine that once these walls protected the Chinese empires land from different invaders. At Mutianyu, you can hike up the side of mountain to the wall, and pass several different watch towers for different views. On the way down, you can either walk, or take the cable car or the tobbogan (Own expense).

Then youll have a traditional Chinese cuisine lunch at a local restaurant where your guide will help to explain everything youre eating. After that, we will take you to a Silk Factory where experts will help you see the process of silk making from silkworm to finished product. Your guides can also help you explain how everything is made and its the perfect place to get some souvenirs for friends and families at home. Youll gain an understanding of the different qualities of silk, to make sure that you dont get ripped off.


Then, youll be taken to the Summer Palace, one of Beijings most popular landmarks and one of the best examples of an imperial garden in China. The site which covers a total of 2.9 square kilometers and incorporates a huge lake, has long been a royal garden and was considerably enlarged during the reign of Empress Dowager Cixi who effectively controlled China for 47 years between 1861 and 1908.


Your dinner in the evening will be an unforgettable experience tasting one of the most famous cuisines, Peking Roast Duck (or you can also call it Beijing Duck). It is best known for its remarkable marinated duck, its crisp skin a rich amber hue, which you can wrap in tiny pancakes with plum sauce, cucumber, spring onion, and sometimes hami melon. Your guide will help you and explain the history of Beijing Duck, and how it is traditionally eaten in Beijing.
