Your English-speaking guide will pick you up at your hotel between 7:30-8:00am. From there we will then make the 2-hour drive to the Great Wall at Badaling. When you see a photo from the Great Wall of China, chances are it is from the section at Badaling. The Badaling section of the Great Wall is the best preserved and the most popular one amongst all the sections. It is more than 1,000 meters (3281 ft) above sea level, and commands a strategic position for transportation and defense that served it well in ancient times.

Badaling, literally meaning "reach eight directions", got its name because the maze of its ridges stretches in all directions. It is easily accessible and has easy walking conditions. Looking to climb an adventurous, peaceful, crowd-free part of the Great Wall? The more well-known, ‘renovated’ walls are not the only sections that are easy to visit on a day or half day trip from Beijing. Today you will discover the un-renovated section of Badaling, also called Shixiaguan by local farmers. It remains a secret to most visitors, making it one of the quietest spots to experience this ancient marvel and its seemingly endless beauty. Wild and rugged Badaling is located southwest of the rebuilt but touristy part of Badaling, one of Beijing's best-known and most visited section of Great Wall. Unrestored Badaling, however, offers a more off-the-beaten-track, non-touristy way to experience part of the monumental feat of engineering.

Following our visit to the Badaling Great Wall we will have a traditional Chinese lunch at the Jade Art Restaurant, which is just nearby the Badaling Great Wall.

After making the drive back into the city, we will arrive at the Forbidden City, the home of the Chinese emperors for over 400 years. The Forbidden City (known in Chinese as Gu Gong), is the largest surviving palace complex and the former home of the emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasty. The Forbidden City is one of the greatest attractions in the world. Built by the third Ming emperor from 1406-1422, the Forbidden City served as the official residence to the Emperor of China until the last emperor, Puyi, was forced to evacuate in 1924. The Forbidden City is divided into two parts. The southern section, or the Outer Court was where the emperor exercised his supreme power over the nation. The northern section, or the Inner Court was where he lived with his royal family. Consisting of 980 buildings and with 8,707 bays of rooms, the Forbidden City is the best example of classical Chinese architecture in the world, and is a wonder to behold.

After a few hours of touring at the Forbidden City, you will then then have a chance to get some traditional handicrafts and curios at a local market. Be sure to bargain hard, because you can often get something at half the asking price. Our guide will give you a hand!

During the late afternoon/early evening, you will be dropped off back at your hotel, ending your full day of taking in the finest sights of Beijing, if not all of China!
