Day by Day Itinerary
Day 01 Arrival in Beijing
No meals
Crowne Plaza  

Our guide will meet you outside the customs of Beijing Airport after you retrieve your luggage and clear the customs, and then transfer you to the hotel. The rest of the day is on your own to explore the city.

Tips: If you arrive in Beijing earlier today, we suggest you pay a visit to Jingshan Park by yourselves, which locates to the north of the Forbidden City. Standing on the top of Jingshan Hill in the park, you can have a panoramic view of the Forbidden City in grandeur. Notably famous for varieties of peonies, Jingshan Park is also the royal park in Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties of China. The opening time is from 06: 00am to 19: 00 pm. The entrance fee is only CNY2.00 Yuan excluding the exhibition fee inside the garden. The site is not far from your hotel and it is very convenient to get there by taxi.

Day 02 Beijing
American breakfast, A la carte lunch
Crowne Plaza  

Visit the Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City this morning. Then an a la carte lunch is served at a very nice restaurant to taste the authentic Chinese food. In the afternoon, visit the Temple of Heaven. In the evening, you will enjoy a lively Chinese Kung Fu Show at Red Theatre.

Tips: There are two interesting scenic spots related to sound atmosphere in Temple of Heaven that you cannot miss. One is at the midpoint on the top of the Circular Mound Altar (Yuanqiutan), where your voice will be mysteriously amplified; the other is the Echoing Wall where you can hear your friend's whisper even if you two stand at opposite ends of the wall respectively. Besides all this, you will also have a chance to discover more about the local retired residents' life. In the long corridor, you will see the local people playing Chinese chess, playing traditional instruments or performing Beijing opera. It will be quite an amazing experience!

Day 03 Beijing
American breakfast, Lunch
Crowne Plaza  

Visit the Badaling Great Wall. To avoid having lunch at shopping site restaurants, you will be driven to have Sichuan food at a local popular restaurant. Visit the Sacred Way and the Ming Tomb in the afternoon. On the way back to downtown, drive by the Bird's Nest (Olympic National Stadium). You will see its appearance at a distance.

Tips: Seeing that you are ready to climb up the Great Wall, of course, a pair of comfortable shoes is really needed. Because of the steep inclines along the Great Wall, you'd better not wear high heel shoes. Otherwise, you will probably feel fatigue very quickly. What's more, they are hazardous in such locations in any event. But sports shoes are highly recommended. During the process of climbing, sometimes, you may happen to meet quite steep section. If you are afraid of foot slip, it's better to walk like crab.
