Day 1 Mutianyu Tour
Pick up from your downtown Beijing hotel at 8:00am. Take a 1.5 hr drive to Mutianyu Great Wall (UNESCO) which is located some 90km north of Beijing. The Mutianyu Great Wall is well-known for its beautiful surroundings - dense woods and rich pastures changing colors with the seasons of the year. It is a good idea to take the cable car (optional) to reach the top, the views of the Great Wall undulating down wooded canyons and up the mountain ridges are breathtaking.
Return to downtown and visit the Forbidden City (UNESCO) ( 2 hours) and visit a Silk Factory, where you can bargain for silk products and China's traditional silk arts (40 minutes).The technique for producing silk date back from 2500 BC and comes from china by the Silk Road. It was a secret until 560 BC. The Forbidden City is the Chinese imperial palace from the mid-Ming Dynasty to the end of the Qing Dynasty. For almost 500 years, it served as the seat-bed of the Emperors in Ming and Qing Dynasties as well as the ceremonial and political centre of Chinese government.
Then visit Tiananmen Square (40 minutes), the largest public square of this kind in the world. Located in the heart of Beijing City, it is the site for massive parades and rallies, which is the largest square of this kind in the world. This was the site when in 1949, from a rostrum on Tiananmen (the Gate of Heavenly Peace), Chairman Mao proclaimed the establishment of the People's Republic of China.
Drop off at your hotel after full day tour.
