In the morning, your professional guide will pick you up at hotel in Beijing and head to the Forbidden City – the capital of Imperial China. It was off-limits from its completion in 1420 until the fall of the Last Emperor in 1911, hence its name “The Forbidden City.”

The Forbidden City is located in the center of Beijing. It served as the home of emperors and their households as well as the ceremonial and political center of Chinese government for almost 500 years.

Built in 1406 to 1420, the complex covers 72 hectares. The palace complex exemplifies traditional Chinese palatial architecture, and has influenced cultural and architectural developments in East Asia and elsewhere. The Forbidden City was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987, and is listed by UNESCO as the largest collection of preserved ancient wooden structures in the world.

You will enter the Forbidden City from south gate, the Meridian Gate, and will be escorted through the whole complex while your guide is explaining details on the buildings, history and court life of Ming & Qing Dynasties. After your exit from north gate, you will ascend the Coal Hill for a stunning bird’s eye view of the city.

After lunch, you will travel 45 miles north of Beijing to visit Great Wall Mutianyu section.

The Great Wall – supposedly the only man-made object on earth that can be seen from the moon, snakes its way up and down mountains and stretches for 2,400 miles. Built in numerous sections, work on the wall started as early as BC500 though it was only in about BC215, when China became the country that we know today, did various start getting linked and the Wall took on its current form.

Meant as a defense against the invading Mongols it was never a success, as the Mongol Invasion in 1215 proved. The Ming Dynasty Emperors once again set about rebuilding the Wall though it was never again used as a defense mechanism.

Mutianyu Great Wall winds 1.4 miles through lofty mountains and high ridges. Besides its strategically important location and compact layout, the Mutianyu Great Wall is also famous for the breath-taking scenery. Woods cover over 96% of the total area and the Wall presents different aspects of beauty in the four seasons. US President Bill Clinton came here and declared it to be “very beautiful, very grand, more beautiful and grander than I imagined”.

Upon arrival, your guide will take you to cable car station for a ride up to the Wall. You will then spend an hour to walk along the Wall and to enjoy the amazing views. Afterwards, you will take cable car down the Wall, grab a souvenir from vendors, and on board your return trip.
You will end your unforgettable full day experience and return to hotel in the early evening.
